Watch Funny or Die Parody Trailer For Weird: The Al Yankovic Story

Weird: The Al Yankovic Story Is the Next Great Biopic

I have a major soft spot for Weird Al Yankovic. I follow him on Twitter and remember listening to his albums on tape like it was the greatest music ever. I'm not the only one: Funny or Die has crafted an amazing parody trailer for a biopic about the comedian/musician called Weird: The Al Yankovic Story. In the starring role is Breaking Bad's Aaron Paul, Gary Cole and Mary Steenburgen play his parents, Olivia Wilde gets the role of Madonna—Al's apparent secret love—while comedians like Paul Scheer and Patton Oswalt appear as figures in his life as well (the real Weird Al even makes a cameo). It has all the great trademarks of a rock biopic—the rise to fame, daddy issues, a fame spiral into alcoholism and jail. It's the most hilarious thing I've seen in a while—but I have to ask, is it so wrong that I want it to be a real movie? Catch the clip after the jump.
