The Hanson brothers made a big splash when they hopped back on the scene earlier this year with their foot-stompin’, and quite catchy single, “Thinking ‘Bout Somethin.’” So, now that the trio once again have a hit on their hands, what can they do to further boost their street cred? Well, enlist Weird Al Yankovic, of course.
In a behind-the-scenes look at Hanson’s video shoot for “Thinking ‘Bout Somethin,’” which debuted in its original form this past April on MySpace, the curly-haired king of parody explains his role in the video (“I am, what is known technically in the business, as the tambourine player”) and sheds any nasty rumblings about the true nature of his partnership with the mop-topped lads (“My relationship with the guys in Hanson. Totally platonic. I wish the rumors would stop”).
We’re not gonna lie… we’ve loved Weird Al from his “Gump” and “Amish Paradise” days… so, nice call, Hanson.
