** His uncharacteristically nasty mock interview with Kevin Federline.

** His uncharacteristically nasty mock interview with Kevin Federline.Federline qualifies in its entirety, but the most directly insulting piece would be:
-->''"Really? You mean like if somebody got right up in your face, and said that you're an [[SuddenlyShouting IGNORANT, NO-TALENT, WHITE TRASH, FORTUNE-SQUANDERING VANILLA ICE-WANNABE]] '''[[SuddenlyShouting LOSER]]''', [[ItMakesSenseInContext you'd be okay with that?]]"''

He eventually sent three songs to the ''Creator/DrDemento Show'': "Belvedere Cruisin'", "Dr. D Superstar" (never aired), "My Bologna", a parody of The Knack's "My Sharona". Knack lead singer Doug Fieger heard "My Bologna", contacted Al, and got "My Bologna" released as a single. After a modest start (including a disastrous opening for Music/MissingPersons), Al released his first album on Scotti Bros. Records in 1983, hit it big with his second album thanks to "Eat It" (a song and music video parody of Music/MichaelJackson's "Beat It") peaking at number 12 on the Billboard Hot 100, and hasn't looked back since. Most of Al's albums during the '80s and '90s went platinum; Al shrewdly used ViralMarketing to saturate social media with publicity for his 2014 album ''Mandatory Fun'', and he was rewarded with that album debuting at number one on the Billboard 200 (his first number one album ever). The success of ''Mandatory Fun'' launched an online petition asking for Al play the Super Bowl XLIX halftime show, which eventually gathered over 125,000 signatures. (Despite this, Al would be the first to admit he was never seriously in the running due to behind-the-scenes politics; the gig eventually went to KatyPerry.) Al has also won four Grammys in his career: three for various albums and one for a video.

* RockersSmashGuitars: At the end of the "Smells like Nirvana" video, Al smashes his guitar, the audience smashes plates on a guy's head, and then Al pushes a plunge-detonator to [[StockFootage demolish a building]]. He also used to smash his accordion at the end of his polka medleys in concert when they ended with TheWho's "My Generation".

* RealTrailerFakeMovie: [[https://youtu.be/vcNuiri2dV0 This hilarious trailer from Funny Or Die]] for a heavily fictionalized (to put it mildly) biopic, which depicts Al (portrayed by [[BreakingBad Aaron Paul]] as an alcoholic who has a torrid affair with {{Madonna}}. The real Weird Al makes a cameo.
