‘Fat’ – Funny songs video

'Fat' - Funny songs video

Mimi XD

“Fat”, a parody of Michael Jackson’s “Bad”, was released in 1988 and was the second parody Weird Al made of a Jackson song, the first being “Eat It”. While the song itself is hilarious, the video that accompanies it is… well, no pun intended. The clip, which features Yankovic in a fat suit and the same subway setting from the ‘Bad’ video, parodies several elements of Jackson, including the costume and choreography. Also, it shows Yankovic getting fatter as the video goes on. To some shock, it won a Grammy for Best Concept Music Video in 1988, but we’re a big fan of Weird Al and find his videos hilarious, so we’re not too surprised.
