You’ve gotta love Weird Al Yankovic. He’s been mocking everyone and everything for decades now, and he still hasn’t lost his cutting-edge appeal or acerbic sense of humor.
This is the official music video for Weasel Stomping Day, a song from the critically-acclaimed Straight Outta Lynwood from 2006. And both the song and video are very funny.
The song tells the story of a fictitious holiday which takes place on June 31 every year (check your calendars, it doesn’t exist), when everyone dons boots and viking helmets and stomps on weasels for no other reason than it’s fun.
The video was made by and for Robot Chicken, Seth Green’s anarchic animated show, and it sums the song up very well. It appeared during the 12th episode of the second season of The Munnery, just prior to the album’s release.
