Do you want Weird Al Yankovic to sing Happy Birthday to You to you?
March 22nd, 2022 under Weird Al Yankovic. [ Comments: none ]

Weird Al Yankovic is having a busy 2022. He is going back on the road, he just finished working on a biopic that is going to air on Roku, and yet he still had time to do something for us.

The Shlock Rocker teamed up with American Greetings for a Smash Up birthday greeting card. All you have to do is find your name or your loved one’s name and how old they are going to be. Once you have that, you can preview the special way Weird Al sings Happy Birthday.

“I’ve always been a huge fan of Mildred and Patty, the Hill sisters… and it was an honor to perform one of their all-time biggest hits – ‘Happy Birthday to You’ – especially now that it’s public domain,” joked Yankovic. “Plus I got to write and perform my OWN original birthday song for this project as well, which was a lot of fun. I remember when my friend Donny Osmond personally sent me his SmashUp a couple years ago – it completely blew my mind, and I knew right then that I wanted to do my OWN SmashUp, so that I could blow people’s minds too!”

This is the type of gift you can give anyone, including today’s birthday boy William Shatner. I mean, because what do you get a 91-year-old who has been to Space? You get him a Weird Al singing birthday telegram.

On that note, my birthday is April 1st, and guess what I want? A million dollars to pay for gas and a birthday card from Weird Al Yankovic.

In case you haven’t heard, Roku is doing a biopic about Weird Al Yankovic with Funny or Die. Last week, we saw Daniel Radcliffe in character because he is playing the title role.

Today, we found out that Evan Rachel Wood will be playing Madonna, and Shlock Rocker shared a photo of her as the singer. Weird Al covered her song Like a Virgin and parodied it into Like a Surgeon to become one of his biggest hits.

Rolling Stone also revealed who is else is starring in the movie. Rainn Wilson is playing the legendary radio host, Dr. Demento, who gave Weird Al his big break. Toby Huss and Julianne Nicholson will play his late parents, Nick and Mary. Their death still haunts me to this day.


Daniel Radcliffe transforms into ’80s Weird Al Yankovic

Daniel Radcliffe was born in 1989. By that year, Weird Al Yankovic already had several hit singles, records, along with the cult classic movie UHF.

However, that didn’t stop Roku from hiring Harry Potter to play the Schlock Rocker in the Funny or Die biopic about the musician’s wild and crazy life. Looking at this photo, I can totally see why they went they did. It is as though everyone won on Jeopardy instead of the fact that they lost on Jeopardy, baby.

It is like we went into a time machine and were transported back to that version of Weird Al.


Daniel Radcliffe lands the role of a lifetime!

If you thought that Daniel Radcliffe’s greatest role was Harry Potter, you were wrong. That is because today, Roku announced that he will be playing the title role in Weird: The Al Yankovic Story. The actor better be prepared for awards season because he is going to win them all, including best actress!

“When my last movie UHF came out in 1989, I made a solemn vow to my fans that I would release a major motion picture every 33 years, like clockwork. I’m very happy to say we’re on schedule,” said Yankovic. “And I am absolutely thrilled that Daniel Radcliffe will be portraying me in the film. I have no doubt whatsoever that this is the role future generations will remember him for.”

As you can tell, this is going to be a very serious biopic about the Schlock Rocker. That is why Weird Al teamed up with Funny or Die’s Eric Apple, who is writing the film with the singer and directing it. “When Weird Al first sat me down against my will and told me his life story, I didn’t believe any of it, but I knew that we had to make a movie about it,” Appel said.

I can’t wait to see how they tell Weird Al’s story. Actually, I am more excited to see Radcliffe will look with a curly wig and mustache. That is going to make it all worth it.

Production begins next month on the telemovie.
