Flashback: Celebrating 20 Years of "Weird Al" Yankovic's "UHF"


After watching "Weird Al" Yankovic's Doors-mocking new video "Craigslist," Rock Daily got nostalgic for Yankovic's classic comedy UHF, about an ultra high frequency television station forced to fill its airwaves with the strangest TV shows you've ever seen. The film happens to be celebrating its 20th anniversary next month, so to honor Weird Al's cult comedy, which also starred Michael Richards (Kramer from Seinfeld) as a night janitor who got his own show, this week's Flashback features several of our favorite clips from the film. Up top, Yankovic turns Dire Straits' "Money For Nothing" into an ode to the Beverly Hillbilles. After the jump, check out the hilarious segments "Conan The Librarian" and "Wheel of Fish." And if you haven't seen UHF yet, we recommend scouting out the DVD ASAP.
