First Trailer for ‘Weird: The Al Yankovic Story” Hits The Web

That’s right. It’s here. The first ever parody trailer about one of the most popular parody songwriters ever. Granted, we were all a bit let down when we realized that this trailer wasn’t real (the fact that it was on was our first clue), but that doesn’t mean that it still isn’t pretty brilliant.

In a time where Hollywood is picking up the rights for “The Joan Jett Story”, why wouldn’t they want to do a heartfelt biopic about America’s weirdest folk musician? Walk Hard may have already covered most of the ground, but that doesn’t mean there isn’t still room for another.

After the jump, check out this incredibly well done trailer for Weird: The Al Yankovic Story starring Aaron Paul (Breaking Bad), Olivia Wilde, Gary Cole, Mary Steenburgen, and Patton Oswalt as Dr. Demento. It’s pretty impressive stuff, even if about a third of it isn’t true.
