I think its great that Weird Al does it but you just know most any other actors would be doing it for ego-fluffing purposes. Weird Al, being the innocent cinnamon roll that he is just loves seeing peoples reactions.


It's the only sane option!


Why wouldn't you?


So The Naked Gun was released in 1988, so post Eat It and during the production of UHF.


My cousin took Chris Klein's sister to American Pie 2. Klein's p******** scene was awkward for them.


Exactly what I would do.


Did they not know who they were on a date with? Definitely a fun thing to make a memorable date.


What a f***in nerd. I love that guy. 10/10.


I saw Al live in 2010 just after Leslie Neilsen had died. Played that clip and the place went nuts.


That's a lot of first dates in the narrow timeframe that Naked Gun was actually in the theaters
