Weird Al has turned his songwriting talents away from silly subjects like tin foil and Oreos, and is now focusing on the most important subject of all: presents. In this commercial, he appears to be on some sort of a retainer for Radio Shack, popping up to sing while showing Shauna Malwae-Tweep to the toy aisle.
Does this commercial make me want to do my Christmas shopping at Radio Shack? No. Mostly because every Radio Shack I’ve ever been in has had a Going Out of Business sign out front and inside is just half-empty shelves of batteries and unorganized toner cartridges. But it does make me want to go listen to “Off the Deep End” in its entirety.
