Weird Al – The Saga Begins

Oooooh, I hadn’t seen this in ages, until my attention was drawn to the (well a) Top Ten Weird Al Videos. Some of them fall into the “funny at the time” or “funny once or twice” categories, but this one still works for me. To the tune of Don McLean’s American Pie[1], and dressed as the young Obi-Wan Kenobi, Al sings the story of Star Wars Episode I. Worth watching if only for the sublimely silly lines in the chorus:

My, my, this here Anakin guy
Maybe Vader some day later
Now he’s just a small fry…
