Cover of Alpocalypse

From Alpocalypse and 4 other releases

A style parody of The White Stripes, CNR’s lyrics are about superhuman feats that Charles Nelson Reilly could accomplish, similar to Chuck Norris facts. The video, created by JibJab, animates the song’s lyrics using JibJab employees as actors against a green screen, interspersed with shots of Yankovic and Jon “Bermuda” Schwartz performing on a White Stripes-inspired red-and-white set, dressed as Jack White and Meg White, respectively. In a first for any major recording artist, users of Jib-Jab’s web site can include themselves in the music video.

Charles Nelson Reilly was a mighty man
The kind of man you'd never disrespect
He stood eight feet tall, wore glasses, and had a third nipple on the back of his neck
He ate his own weight in coal, excreted diamonds everyday
