The video is a teaser for his upcoming boxed set
Weird Al Yankovic has been making pop parodies and polka melodies for a long time now. The entirety of his 30-year career will be represented in his upcoming box collection, Squeeze Box: The Complete Works of Weird Al Yankovic. In addition to all 14 of Weird Al’s albums, the collection also includes Medium Rarities, a disc of non-album material. On Thursday, Weird Al released the trailer for that set.
The Medium Rarities video features Weird Al scrolling across the screen in an 8-bit video game while bits of these rarities play in chronological order. Each song is represented by a unique object: a Yoda head for “Yoda,” a Holy Grail for his Galavant cut “Hey, Hey, We’re the Monks,” and so on. True to Weird Al’s satirical skills, the video is mostly a parody of Super Mario Bros.
Watch the video above. Squeeze Box is out Nov. 24.
