Weird Al Yankovic is regarded as the ruler of musical parodies. His exceptionally long career has outlasted some of the major artists whom he parodied.

His parodies gained remarkable popularity in comparison to the original songs, and now he even got a movie about his life starring Daniel Radcliffe and Evan Rachel Wood! We can rightfully state that his parodies are iconic. And he proved that humor doesn’t require vulgarity or offensive and tasteless jokes. Just being a little too weird and creative will suffice.

While Weird Al rose to stardom, his equally hilarious music videos also gained remarkable prominence. Each of his videos is full of pop culture references and sight gags, which will make you laugh until your stomach hurts. His music videos and parodies go hand in hand.

Over the years, Weird Al has genuinely made some iconic videos. He transformed Jurassic Park with a humorous song that retells the film’s entire plot. He made this video entirely animated using Claymation, giving a strange and unique feeling towards the same.

And that is precisely what a Weird Al video must look like.

The “Trapped In The Drive-Thru” is Weird Al’s most extended yet the best parody of the lot. What he usually does is modify the lyrics of the original song and make them bizarre. But in this parody, he chose to reverse his otherwise traditional formula. He took the initiative to tell a highly ordinary story of a typical pair in line at a drive-thru.

The end result was eleven minutes of pure comedy!
