Almost unbelievably awful.

He's so much more weird than his brother, Conservative Al.

He bought movie tickets from me in Wetswood, LA. You know what his credit card says?

Weird Al.

Utterly horrifying...

Wow. "0%" against an expanse of black. Pretty experimental.

Oh well. At least I won't be suiciding over my jealous lust for his curly locks.

Konolia: I think you need to add some warnings to that link.

Pantsrobot: The Polka version of Bohemian Rhapsody is done by Wierd Al. Don't think the "video" is.

On the plus side: whoever did this matched the words and images from Lost quite well. On the negative side: my brain hurts.

Took ten minutes to load. Took twenty seconds before I closed it. For this year at least, worst of the web.

I prefer the Sawyer Song (also flash).

Thanks for the not-painfully-slow pantsrobot!

Am I wrong for actually really liking this? That it seems to be fan-made makes it particularly awesome.

You didn't laugh at Mecha Godzilla's appearance?

Yeah, I quite like how they worked in a lot of the story elements from Lost. It's all season 1 shots (I think) so I wonder how old it is.

I got a kick out of it.

You have to appreciate the sheer amount of care put into the actual segment selection. A good 70% of the scenes contain a lot of additional meaning to people who watch the show obsessively *coughs*.

Great job he syncing the lyrics to the characters and their actions. Also, some of the animation is so well-timed, I wonder how "amateur" it really is.

I've never even watched "Lost" and I liked it.

bad. no Digg

oh wait...

Mecha Godzilla? I would have thought that Robot Johnny would have recognized Grimlock!

Flash humour suits Weird Al perfectly.

That was awesome. I sent it to all my LOST fanatic friends.

Oh no! It went by so fast... I won't go back to check, but I trust you're right. GRIMLOCK DISAPPOINTED IN FELLOW ROBOT!!!

See the turtle of enormous girth, on his shell he holds the Earth

Okay, I laughed at "carry on, carry on." And the turtle.

Does anyone know how accurate the whole "let you/me go" bit was? I remember all those characters actually saying those words, it'd have been supercool if that was synced up

hey, solid-one-love, i've seen worse here.

Worst of the best of the web.

Wait, best of the worst of the... "nevermind."

That was so stupidly brilliant. Thanks for posting it.

My sentiments exactly. I’ve seen the TV show only once, for less than five minutes, but the video made me laugh. Actually, just a polka version of that song alone (no video) is such a ridiculous idea it makes me laugh. TV is just dumb, but Weird Al is sublimely dumb.

Party on, konolia.
