Weird Al's "Lame Claim To Fame" is a southern rock parody delight

If you’re from the South then this video will touch on a strange fringe overlooked but common piece of southern culture.  Folks talking about how they once knew a guy who said his sister once slept with Dale Earnhardt Jr.’s pit crew chief.  “Dude I swear, it’s all true.”

As a southern myself I can’t say that I’m immune to it.  Even my celebrity fantasies like meeting Kenny “the Snake” Stabler or the “Dancing Outlaw” Jesco White are lame claims to fame.

Weird Al just continues his uninterrupted streak of awesome this week with video number 7.  That means we only have one more this week.  Before you go and get all down and depressed about that though, check out “Lame Claim To Fame.”
 

 
Buzzed Breakdown I love the animation in this video. It’s such a cool, old school MTV style. I remember videos like this from the late 80′s and early ’90s. I am old.

The song itself is hilarious, it really touches on a piece of American, especially southern culture. I think the best part was close to the beginning though when he mentioned being in the bathroom stall next to Jonah Hill. I quite literally lol’d.

I really can’t wait to see what Weird Al is saving for the grand finale of this week of fun. I’m also really sad that it’s all coming to an end. This has been a really great week and you have to think that Weird Al has accomplished this mission.

Weird Al has stayed in front of our short attention span internet for over a week. That is not easy to do and certianly not a lame claim to fame.
