After his nomination for the best music audio video category was announced earlier this week, Weird Al Yankovich had a message for his critics: Stop saying it’s not a “classic” song.
The Grammy-winning musician’s latest video for “Weeks” has won the top award at the SXSW Music Awards, but it also won’t be out on the big screens anytime soon.
The Oscar-nominated film is one of just a handful of videos that have been nominated for a Best Music Video Grammy award since the Grammy Awards were first introduced in 1997, which has been a boon for music videos.
“It’s a very small number of people who have been making great music videos,” Yankiewicz said in a statement.
“The vast majority of our videos are really great, and we are very thankful to be nominated for this.”
