“Weird Al” Yankovic
Close But No Cigar
I’ve always been a huge fan of “Weird Al” and I’ve been to every concert tour he’s done since the first. I had a plethora of concert Ts that I bought at the venues, but, surprisingly, they’ve never made an official “Weird Al” hawaiian shirt. He is, afterall, just as famous for his loud shirts, as he is for his music.
In 2006, Al released “Straight Outta Lynwood” and teamed up with Ren & Stimpy creator John Kricfalusi to make a video for his “Close But No Cigar” single. I saw this as the perfect opportunity to make a shirt. Not only am I a fan of Al, but also of John.
