“I thought it would be anachronistically weird to have me as Jim Morrison screaming about Craigslist,” Yankovic told Spinner. “That just seemed so completely wrong that I thought I had to do it.”
You have to sit through a 15-second ad before the video will play, but it’s worth it. Not sure if the Doors get songwriting credit, but musically, it’s a perfect pastiche of “Soul Kitchen” and all the Ray Manzarek cliches Al could throw in to one song. Gotta admit that the guitar tone sounds awesome, and Yankovic’s voice sounds so great he might want to consider starting a cover band: Crystal Shit. You’d be really impressed.
