Premiere cancelled

You’ll have to change your plans slightly for tonight. Here’s the latest news from Al’s MySpace:

Premiere cancelled

I’m very sorry to say that the AOL “First View” Premiere of the “White & Nerdy” video has been cancelled.

Apparently, the video has already leaked online, and AOL doesn’t feel comfortable doing a “World Premiere” promotion for a video that a number of people have seen already. (I can understand songs leaking, but a video? How’d THAT happen?)

Anyway, it’s really a bummer… it would have been great promotion for the album… but hey, life goes on.


I’ll be uploading the video to this page shortly. Tell your friends!

So, yes, you’ll still be seeing the video tonight. You’ll just have to tune into Al’s MySpace exclusively to see it.

Edit: It’s on AOL after all, just no fanfare. Watch it here.

    Who was the, sorry if I offend someone with this word, RETARD who leaked the video?!?
    How does this happen anyway?
    And another thing…
    How is Al planning on updating everyone’s copy of The Ultimate Video Collection with the new videos?

  2. Ryan says:

    I don’t get it… You don’t have to wait till tonight. I just watched it on… AOL still put it up, so go watch it now that it’s legit. One of his best yet. Oh, and the video got taken of youtube by the RIAA, go figure.

  3. ABN says:

    Excellent! I’m sssssooooooooooooooooooooooooo There!!!!!!! Except I live in PA, so I have to wait till tomorrow!

  4. Jon says:

    That sucks that it was leaked. But, I am looking forward to seeing it as soon as possible!

  5. Ryan says:

    Note: the video is at AOL video… just search for “weird al”. Perhaps it got leaked ’cause AOL sucks?

  6. rusty says:

    Saw it already…

    it rocked big time!!!!!!!

  7. dude says:

    mel gibson’s blaming this on the jews

  8. White and Nerdy says:

    It is one of the best

  9. Ryan says:

    Stephen S: I think Al might start putting the videos on iTunes or something, hopefully it’ll be in high quality there… I personally would rather have it on the Dual-Disc, but that doesn’t sound likely.

  10. A Man says:

    I knew good wasn’t going to be comming out of all the stuff that was leaked. This just sucks, and personnally, I don’t blame Al, or AOL for pulling it. I feel sorry for Al. He really deserves better than leaked music and exspecially videos.

  11. Ryan says:

    A Man: What are you talking about? AOL didn’t pull it. What are you all talking about? It’ll still be on VH1 a buttload of times! I personally can’t wait to see it on TV.

  12. A Man says:

    I checked AOL, but I couldn’t find it. I’m sure that it’ll still be on there, just it won’t be a big premier, since everyone’s seen it.

  13. Stephen S. says:

    I forgot about iTunes.
    That would be good until “The Most Ultimate Video Collection”

  14. rusty says:

    for those who can’t find the video on AOL…look under “video”….then search with these keywords

    “WEIRD AL”

    hope that’s not to hard for ya’ll to understand

  15. dude says:

    anyone see the polkarama video yet?????

  16. A Man says:

    Thanks happysteve.
    Anyone else catch the Wiki page Al was editing:P

  17. narc says:

    Who was Al that guy dancing with Al at the mid-end of the video? He kinda looks like Donnie Osmend.

    PS: I think I saw Seth Green too.

  18. Ryan says:

    A Man: the Atlantic Records joke was pretty funny. Also, check out the fake myspace from the video at There is also a dog webpage at The dog page seems to be loading really slowly.

  19. Sarah says:

    I liked the video. I would like to get my hands on a high quality version though, because the pixel view just doesn’t cut it. Hopefully, Al will release a high quality version in the near future. Good job, Al!

  20. Jay says:

    The closeup of the Trivial Pursuit card is awesome. 43-Man Squamish! 😀

  21. Patti says:

    Sarah, the video will start in heavy rotation on VH-1 tomorrow, so you’ll get to see a much higher quality version of it very soon. Btw, for some reason, I can’t get to Al’s YouTube page by clicking the YouTube link at the bottom of the video on his myspace. Anyone have a link?

  22. Sarah says:

    Thanks. I’ll have to start watching, I guess. It’s nice to have something more than antenna for the first time in my life, so I can watch it!

  23. Anonymous says:

    that video was awesome! i didnt even really recognize al for a little of it, he can change his appearance so well! lol, i loved the video!

  24. dude says:

    If ya’ll want a higher quality of the “white and nerdy” video…..

    remember…we have an al-tv coming up!!! (funny he always does one every time he’s promoting a brand new album??)

  25. a guy in tennessee says:

    dos anybody know (STEVE, MARTY, ELVIS) what specific times the white and nerdy video will be on VH1???

    i’m talking a schedule here

  26. elvis says:

    I don’t know for sure, but my best guess would be that it will air between 3:00 a.m. and 8:00 a.m. That’s when they play music videos.

  27. rusty says:

    Thanks elvis!!!!!!

  28. Ryan says:

    Patti: here is Al’s youtube page ‘’. You can see his playlists and stuff, I’m pretty sure this is his, ’cause this was the account used to upload “White and Nerdy” last night onto his myspace.

  29. Ryan says:

    Oops, my bad, I’d appreciate it if the moderator got rid of my comments about weird al’s youtube account, I guess he doesn’t have any playlists… I’m just a worthless hunk of slime!

  30. Nick S. says:

    This video kicks ass!!! It reminds me of why I started liking Weird Al in the first place.

  31. rusty says:
