Note: As with all my pre-2000 videos, this one was made with a camcorder and VCR.
I had a good experience with Weird Al videos at A-kon 8, winning two awards with 'em, so I tried it again at A-kon 9. This was the beginning of the end of Weird Al video coolness, for my video only received the Second Place award. Brad DeMoss took First Place with his Steam video. This was an unusual year in the A-kon contest, for there was no People's Choice award. The audience enjoyed my Bohemian Polka video, and might have voted for it. Weird Al tends to be a crowd-pleaser even nowadays.
