Original vs Parody #1

Our first look at Original vs Parody will feature someone who will probably be a regular, "Weird" Al Yankovic.

The original was a #1 single on the Billboard Hot 100 for 2 weeks in 2006 while peaking at #2 in the UK.

The parody surpassed the original by getting over 50 million more views on Youtube and the highest charting single for Weird Al, #9 on the Billboard Hot 100, since "Eat It" reached #12 in 1984.  This also became Weird Al's first single to be certified platinum for sales over 1 million.
