The new trailer for WEIRD: The Al Yankovic Story looks astonishing, however in the event that you’re not savvy to what’s going on, you may be confounded. Exactly what amount of this film is a “genuine” biopic? The short response is: barely anything. No, Weird Al didn’t lay down with Madonna, and negative, he didn’t tend to drink too much, of all time. As obvious Weird Al enthusiasts know, what makes Weird Al so unusual among “demigods,” is that he’s healthy AF. In light of a 2013 Funny or Die sketch for a biopic that didn’t exist, the general purpose of WEIRD: The Al Yankovic Story is to make a wound and comical rendition of Weird Al’s genuine history.
Around the 2:20 characteristic of WEIRD, we see Al and his band (drummer Jon “Bermuda” Schwartz, bassist Steve Jay, and guitarist Jim West) shaking and recording a melody within a restroom. The scene originates from a genuine recording meeting that happened in 1979 while Yankovic (Author’s Note: We are no longer companions. He knows why) was an understudy in the engineering program at California PolyTechnical State University in San Luis Obispo. He was likewise a DJ at the school’s radio broadcast (KCPR) at that point, and his openness to other satire melodies, and the reiteration of The Knack’s then-hit “My Sharona,” lead to Yankovic keep his own farce of it in a men’s restroom nearby. That tune, “My Bologna” — highlighted in its full-band variant in the WEIRD trailer — turned into a hit on Dr. Demento’s public broadcast, and later, Weird Al figured out how to get a tape of the spoof to The Knack’s lead vocalist Doug Fieger, explicitly, when the band played Cal Poly in late November 1979. The rest is intensely performed history.
