Coming off his success with Mandatory Fun, RadioShack (which is still a thing, apparently; I thought they went under long ago) has enlisted Weird Al to act as their holiday emissary. In what I suspect is the first of several commercials we'll see between the Thanksgiving rush and Christmas, Weird Al sings his way through the Shack's selection of tech toys.

It's not as weird as it could be; I expect that this is RadioShack not wanting to appear completely insane. You can bet that if Al had complete creative control, this commercial, while being illustrative and informative, would have also included a remote control badger or illuminated cheese, or some such oddity.

About MR. Clark

Adopting the descriptor of "successfully unpublished author", MR. Clark began writing things on the internet in 2012, which he believed to be an entirely reputable and civilized place to find and deliver information. He regrets much.
