Weird Al's latest

In Weird Al's latest video, he brags about how well he can play Trivial Pursuit. Just before, someone holds up a question card from the game for a split second. The questions on the card are:

  • G: In what city is the largest ball of twine built by one man?
  • E: What's the deal with Lindsay Lohan? I mean, seriously?
  • H: F.D.R. - was he faking it?
  • AL: On what page does Harry Potter die in the next book?
  • SN: What is the melting point of a gorilla's head?
  • S: How many Wicket Men are there on a 43-man Squamish team?
The last question is a reference to an old Mad Magazine article about a fictional game called Squamish... And the answer is "five". :)


Other notes:

His 'backup dancer' is Donny Osmond.

The Wikipedia page he's editing in the video is the Atlantic Records page - he's miffed at them because they forced him to pull a parody of a James Blunt song from the new album, even though James himself approved of it.

He's playing Minesweeper on an OS X desktop logged in as user 'whitennerdy'... Even though Minesweeper is a game that comes with Windows. (It has been ported, though, including a version as a Dashboard widget.)

The "top 8 friends" on the myspace page he shows off are:

  • Bill Gates
  • Napolean Dynamite
  • Mr. Peabody
  • Albert Einstein
  • Pee Wee Herman
  • Tom
  • Frodo
  • Screech (from Saved By The Bell)
