Al TV News

While “Weird Al” has has done an Al TV specials as recently as 2006. I think the most magical ones were the ones back in the 1980s on Mtv. One of my favorite segments from the show, and I would savor the entire show, was his Al TV News Segments. They were spot on in their commentary and across the board funny. They should have been a regular fixture on the music channel (perhaps they should still could be?) Here is the Al TV News from the 1987, 1988 and 1992 specials.

    Weird Al is still The Man.
    Heard him on a podcast recently, and it warms my synaptic cockles to know he’s still actively amusing the modernized populace.

    Also, I’d love for my local news to have the same image changing manual approach.
