Unvergessliches Video ... when I sit around the house, I really sit around the house. Sicher die Hymne von Millionen Amerikanern.
***
...weniger...

zum totlachen!!!!!
*****
Jau! Das war 'ne super Persiflage.
*****
Da capo, Herr Yankovic!

Hehe, der ist lustig. Musste beim ersten Mal hören an Garfield denken...

lustich, aber ich kenne da schon besseres...
******
Dank dem herrlichen Video ne 6 ;)
*****
War witzig!
*****
Besser als Eat It! Inkl. Video.

@Homer: Hahaha! Keine richige Musik!? Was soll das denn nun wieder heissen?? Musik mit satirischem Text gilt für dich nicht als Musik? Dann kannst du aber auch gleich ein einigen knackigen Beatles-Songs eine 2 reindrücken. So ein blöder Kommentar von dir, bei allem Respekt!

geil, vor allem das nachgestellte video (wie auch bei "eat it") !

Gelungene Persiflage auf Michael Jacksons Bad. Ich kriegte mich fast nicht mehr ein als ich das Video dazu zum ersten Mal sah. Irgendwie total kultig.
***
Ohne Video nur halb so lustig.
**
ein wahres wort..
******
Ist schon genial wie er das Original voll auf die Schippe nimmt.Auch wo die in dem einen Keyboard Teil alle nach links laufen und "Ohhh" schreien und irgend einer hat auf einmal so eine Gartenhacke in der Hand !

Echt genial---ist genauso gut wie das Original also 6 Points.

Gruss ZV

Mit dem dazugehörigen Video bestimmt eine 5 - really, really fat!

na ja, sehe jetzt kein video und sonst hat das kein wert, teile eher Homers meinung
****
Natürlich besser als das Original ;)

To re-name a songs "Fat", you know you're heading into a bit of strife. Well, this is "Weird Al", so nothing to worry about here. Al is a master of the comedy "re-write", and out of the few hits he's had in the charts, this is probably the funniest and cleverest. Admittedly, it's the film clip that brings it home, apparently using all the same sets as Michael Jackson's original video. This was Al's second parody of one of Michael's songs, the first being "Eat It". It his skin we all made fun of, Al, not the eating!!!
*****
Der Typ hatte wohl ein eigenartiges Verhältnis zum Thema Essen (Girls Just Wanna Have Lunch, Eat It, Fat). Hehe.
*****
Funny & Clever parody of Michael Jackson's "Bad".
******
Mit Video lustig.

This sort of joke would be concerning in the wrong hands. Really only Weird Al can pull off something this dumb and blunt (like audio slapstick) riffing on basically nothing. That it's one of his bigger hits makes me put it under greater scrutiny, and from that, I'm not sure it's quite good enough for it, but it's charming enough. 3.7

Clever.

Pretty funny.

diese MJ-Parodie hätte man sich wirklich sparen können – 2*...

geht so
******
Hilarious!

▒ Komische "Bad" cover uit 1988 met een leuke videoclip van de nu 53 jarige Amerikaanse muzikant "Alfred Matthew 'Weird Al' Yankovic" !!! Hij heeft in zijn carrière inmiddels meer dan 12 miljoen albums verkocht, meer dan 150 nummers opgenomen, en meer dan 1000 live-voorstellingen gegeven !!! Vanwege zijn bekendheid als artiest, heeft hij ook al meerdere gastrollen gehad in films en televisieseries ☺!!!
***
Leuke persiflage op "Bad" van Michael Jackson.
****
Een geslaagde grap.
****
Like many others, I find this parody very comical and humorous. If you're having a bad day or just want to have a bit of a laugh, listen to this tune.

Really funny and cool. One of his best parodies
*****
5 stars
***
Funny.
**
Früher recht jokig in Verbindung mit dem Clip, heute eher belanglos.
*****
...es ist wirklich das Video das cool ist und Spass bereitet...
****
Man muß wirklich das Video dazu gesehen haben, um über diese Nummer lachen zu können. Genau wie bei "Eat It" zeigt Al Yankovic auch hier, wie dämlich eigentlich das Originalvideo ist.
****
... endlich sehen wir mal richtige Amerikaner im Clip ...
***
Légèrement moins abouti que la parodie de "Beat It".
*****
sehr gut!
****
leuke parodie
