Just a quick review.

I purchased this, as although I have the CD/DVD combo of this album, I really wanted the videos in HD.

This is a Video Album of the newest Al release, and should not be confused with either of the previously available LIVE DVD (or Blu-Ray)

I shall be honest, the biggest bonus for me on this disc, is "White and Nerdy" which was the hit song from Al's previous studio album, "Straight Outta Lynwood". Finally I can enjoy this in the best way possible.

Going back to this disc, Al has amazingly produced videos for each track of this release, and not many people do that these days, if at all. This to me is outstanding, and there is something on this disc to entertain every Al fan (and a few non Al fans)

Oh, and a final comment on the Live show debate - I am a fan based in the UK - I managed to see him live in 2010 in London. It was an amazing show, almost every song had a costume change, the medley is great fun and Al and the band really put their all into it. The concert DVDs do not do the show true justice

3.0 out of 5 stars I enjoyed this Blu Ray but... December 2, 2011
Verified Purchase
Most of the songs are winners but I didn't care for some of the videos. About half of the videos were animated. The animation is on par with silly flash videos that are all over the internet so I wasn't too impressed by any of them. I also though the video quality of White & Nerdy wasn't very good which was quite disappointing since that is one of my favorites. The videos with Al in them are very good, I was just disappointed because I thought he was going to be in all the videos. Overall I did enjoy this and I'm glad I bought it as I'm sure I'll watch it again.

5.0 out of 5 stars I'd highly recommend any Al Dvd/Blu Ray November 7, 2011
Firstly, why is someone reviewing a live dvd, when they should be reviewing THIS dvd/bluray? I love weird al videos, so I am going to purchase this one. But, I am also writing in response to a previous review of the live dvd. A lot of artists do medleys of their hits. It's nothing new. Of course I'd rather see him do the whole song as opposed to a medley. But the concert was about an hour and a half, so that's not bad. I like the performances he did do, so I am not going to hate on what he didn't do. That's my biggest issues with reviewers. Do not harp on what's not there, tell us about what IS there. I do appreciate Al including music videos that did not come out with the orignal "Straight outta Lynnwood" DVD that came with the album. As the album included videos for everything but the main collection of songs and parodies but the newere ones (as al usually does the parodies last, so as to remain current) such as white and nerdy and trapped in a drive thru came out after the deluxe cd. So I am glad he included them with this dvd. The only way this dvd could be better is if they included videos from both albums. so that way you can have all related videos for the last two releases. Again, I loved the live DVD so purchase that too. And this one won't disappoint either. The extra video of White and Nerdy is awesome anytime you can see weird al together with donny osmond, is a plus. Al's videos are definitely worth getting because they get better upon repeat viewings, you can always find something you missed the first time.

3.0 out of 5 stars Some videos upscaled from non-HD sources August 15, 2014
I am a huge fan of "Weird Al" Yankovic, and his videos rarely, if ever, disappoint. The content of this disc is fantastic, and the fact that it contains the video for "White & Nerdy" is a huge selling point for me. That being said, not all of these videos were actually produced/mastered in high definition. Some have been upscaled for this release, causing certain videos to look less clear than others.

It is not difficult to determine with a quick, thoughtful glance which videos are native to the 1080p format, which ones have been upscaled from 720p, and which are simply 480p standard definition videos upscaled for blu-ray. Here's what I determined:

The following videos were produced in 1080p, and look perfect on this release:
• Perform This Way
• TMZ
• Skipper Dan
• Polka Face
• Party In The CIA
• If That Isn't Love
• Whatever You Like
• Stop Forwarding That Crap To Me

The following videos were apparently produced in 720p HD and upscaled to 1080p, resulting in a less crisp/clear image:
• CNR
• Craigslist
• Ringtone
• Another Tattoo
• White & Nerdy
• Trapped In The Drive-Thru

…which leaves just one video - "Do I Creep You Out"… This video was clearly not produced in high definition and looks absolutely terrible as a result of the upscaling from 480p. To make matters worse the video was de-interlaced (rather than de-telecine'd) before being upscaled. And yet, sadly, it's still the best quality version of the video I've found. (The iTunes and YouTube versions are both lower than 480p resolution, so they are of even poorer quality than the source material for this upscaled release.

5.0 out of 5 stars al in hd. May 28, 2012
I saw al last year and he was brilliant in concert as usual. This isn't a live show but his videos for his latest release , few comedic musicians have been able to maintain a career much less be at the top of their game for 30 years but al does it. And he does it here too in hd. The best videos are the ones that he is in and not the animated ones but I was glad to grab this one. So if you like good musical parody tunes done with alot of talent then this one is for you.
