Check Out Weird Al’s New Video: “Ringtone”

Weird Al has always been a favorite artist for us here at YBMW. He’s been a relevant part of current pop culture ever since he first took to his bathroom with a tape recorder and an accordion to record “Another One Rides The Bus” for Dr. Demento. Celebrities consider it a mark of honor to be parodied by him. He’s just plain old awesome.

Well, if you hadn’t noticed for the last year or so, he started releasing his songs directly onto the internet instead of waiting for a CD. For each song he’s created an excellent video using talent that has become popular on the internet ranging from Jibjab to the Director of “The United States of Whatever” and now the guys who direct Current TV’s SuperNews.

All his latest hits will be going on sale tomorrow on any site that sells mp3s.

Here’s the lyrics:
Once, not very long ago, I was respected, I was popular (popular, ooh)
But now I hang my head in shame (ahh, ooh)
My life is filled with such regret
A bad mistake I can’t forget
And now I’ll never be the same

Ringtone
Why did I buy this stupid ringtone?
I just can’t imagine now what I was thinking at all (What was I thinking?)
My friends all stare at me whenever I get a call
Well, everybody (everybody)
Everybody (everybody)
Everybody in the world really hates my ringtone

When my phone goes off at work
I look like the biggest jerk
Total strangers wanna slap me around
When it’s ringin’ on the terrace
My neighbors get embarrassed
They’re beggin’ me to move outta town
Well, it made my wife so sick
She smashed my iPhone with a brick
But I had it fixed, and now it’s just fine
It’s a pain, I sure don’t need it
And I probably should delete it
But for me that would be crossin’ the line
‘Cause I hate to waste a buck ninety nine
Hey, I paid good money for this…

Ringtone
Why did I buy this stupid ringtone?
I just can’t imagine now what I was thinking at all (Really, what was I thinking?)
My friends all stare at me whenever I get a call
Well, everybody (everybody)
Everybody (everybody)
Everybody in the world really hates my ringtone

Ringtone
Ringtone
Ahh, ooh

Chinese factory workers (they hate my ringtone)
Muslim women in burqas (really hate my ringtone)
Starvin’ kids in Angola (they hate my ringtone)
Even folks with Ebola (just hate my ringtone)
All the nuns and nannies (all the welfare mothers)
All the Pakistanis (all the Wayans brothers)
Everyone on the land, everyone on the sea
Every single person everywhere unanimously
Everybody (everybody)
Everybody (everybody)
Everybody in the whole wide world really hates my
Ringtone… ringtone… ringtone… ringtone… ringtone… ringtone…
