Weird Al Yankovic released an amazing new parody, “Lame Claim to Fame,” on Sunday.

Playing on a Southern Culture on the Skids song, Yankovic sings about his bizarre connections to everyone from Brad Pitt to Kim Kardashian.

The video uses stop-motion animation combined with paper cut-outs to tells its pop culture-filled tale.

The video is the seventh offering from Yankovic this week, following “First World Problems,” “Sports Song,” “Handy,” “Foil,” “Word Crimes,” and “Tacky.”

All the tracks are from his new album, Mandatory Fun.
