Weird Al and JibJab Join Forces

“Weird Al” Yankovic, the king of musical satire, and JibJab Media, a leader in digital greetings and online entertainment, have joined forces to produce a brand new Weird Al music video entitled “CNR.”

The video, which just launched at JibJab.com and at weirdal.com, is a tongue-in-cheek homage to the iconic actor, comedian and game show panelist Charles Nelson Reilly. The song is an original composition by Weird Al produced in a hard rock style reminiscent of The White Stripes.

A special version of the video using JibJab’s “Starring You” technology allows JibJab Members to cast themselves, friends and family into the video alongside Weird Al. It is the first time ever that a major recording artist has empowered fans to put themselves into a new music video. The “Starring You” version of the video is available exclusively at JibJab.com.

“Weird Al is one of the most net savvy recording artists in the world,” said JibJab founder Grevan Spiridellis. “With close to a million Twitter followers, he is the 15th most followed musical artist in the world. We are thrilled to have had the opportunity to make his latest video even more social with our ‘Starring You’ technology.”

“It’s always a thrill for me to collaborate with the folks at JibJab,” enthused Yankovic. “They’re completely out of their minds — it’s nice to work with people that are on the same wavelength that I am.”

This is the second time JibJab and Yankovic have worked together. In 2006, the two produced a Taylor Hicks parody entitled “Do I Creep You Out” which can be found at JibJab.com/originals.
