Weird Al Yankovic’s Couch Potato (Eminem 8 Mile Parody)

John P.

Weird Al completely rocks. Here’s Al’s parody of Lose Yourself from Eminem’s 8 Mile album and movie.

Ok. So for those of you who are not Rap fans and are unfamiliar with the original Lose Yourself song from Eminem’s movie 8 Mile, here you go.

    It is interesting that no one that noticeable has become popular remaking songs in the way that Weird Al has. I did see one called “First Asian Boy”, which was a parody of Kanye West’s “American Boy”, but other than that and a few minor attempts from others, Weird Al appears to have the market share locked up at this time.

    Weird Al is most certainly a lyrical genius in addition to his abilities as an actor to mock and mimic the various mannerisms and delivery styles of his victims.

    I have always been partial to his early 90’s hit “Amish Paradise”, a remake of Coolio’s “Gangsta’s Paradise” and would recommend that you check it out if you’re bored.

    Have a great weekend,
