Weird Al Animated

(PR) On September 26 Grammy Award-winning artist "Weird Al" Yankovic will release his 12th studio album Straight Outta Lynwood on Way Moby/Volcano Records. As with each of his previous releases, the album consists of the parodies he is world-famous for as well as original material. Straight Outta Lynwood will be released as a DualDisc, and features six brand new animations to accompany Al's original tracks:

"Don't Download This Song"- Directed and animated by Academy Award nominee Bill Plympton, this video is a tongue-in-cheek plea for fans not to illegally download music. Sample lines: "Don't take away money from artists just like me/How else can I afford another solid gold Humvee?/ And diamond-studded swimming pools, these things don't grow on trees… "

"I'll Sue Ya" - A Rage Against the Machine inspired headbanger which takes aim at the abundance of frivolous lawsuits. It is directed and animated by Thomas Lee.

"Weasel Stomping Day" - Conceptualized and produced by the creative team behind Adult Swim's Robot Chicken, this video celebrates the time-honored holiday. The TV broadcast premiere is scheduled for September 24 on Cartoon Network.

"Close But No Cigar" - Directed by Ren & Stimpy creator John Kricfalusi, this video takes an irreverent look at the world of dating as seen thru the eyes of Cigarettes the cat.

"Pancreas" - Al's musical homage to pop music legend Brian Wilson. The video is directed by filmmaker/media artist Jim Blashfield (best known for videos by Talking Heads ("And She Was"), Paul Simon ("Boy In The Bubble") and Michael Jackson ("Leave Me Alone"). Like those, "Pancreas" uses a combination of live action "found footage" combined with new animation. But unlike those, it stars an undulating pancreas.

"Virus Alert" - Reveals the evil that lurks in your inbox. Animated and directed by "Retarded Animal Babies" creator David C. Lovelace.
