Musical Montage: Weird Al “Gump”

Hitting a few years after the movie, Weird Al recapped the events of Forrest Gump in the form of a parody of the Presidents of the United States’ song “Lump” off the Bad Hair Day album.  Al went all out with the music video, getting look alike to portray Forrest and dressing up himself and his band like the Presidents of the United States and they also do the digital inserting of “Forrest” into historical events, although in a much more comedic fashion that the movie did.  The song also hits all of the major plot points, just like The Saga Begins or Jurassic Park.  You can check out the video below.
