If you would have told us that in 2006 we would be praising the new Weird Al video we would have told you to put down the Cisco and pass us the rest of whatever was in that balloon you were bogarting.

But sure enough the accordion kid from Cal Poly SLO has still got it. Yes, it's odd that he's talking about file-sharing, as if it's a relevant topic worthy of satirizing, but whatevs, it's a funny song and a pretty great video.

It almost seems like Weird Al looked around and said, "if nobody else is going to start making decent, funny videos again, I may as well."

hat tip Metafilter who has inspired yet another 4:20 Video.
