Weird: The Al Yankovic Story Movie Review: Eat It Like a Surgeon in an Amish Paradise | Giant Mess

In this clip from “Giant Mess”, astonishingly dim-witted Neal Lynch reviews Weird: The Al Yankovic Story, a biopic parody of a master parodist(?) Weird Al Yankovic.

Explores every facet of Weird Al Yankovic’s life, from his meteoric rise to fame with early hits like ‘Eat It’ and ‘Like a Surgeon’ to his torrid celebrity love affairs and famously depraved lifestyle.

Giants Fan Rants & Analysis:

“Giant Mess” is a sloppy sports and entertainment talk show about the New York Giants, New York Mets, movies, TV, and more, hosted by a giant mess, Neal Lynch.

I’m a plump and furry Irish-Italian-American who graduated from a Catholic high school (but isn’t Catholic), and a college known for producing doctors and lacrosse players, then became neither. Instead, I’m a blogger, vlogger, podcaster, writer, editor, video optimizer, content strategist, and failed stand-up comedian. I love the New York Giants and Mets.
