Weird Al Story 2006-04-08 10:46:06 Reply

This has to be one of my favorite stories about a Newgrounds contributor...

Back in October of 2003, Daniel Rocha (LisVender on NG) submitted his Flash video for the Weird Al song Angry White Boy Polka.

It turns out, Matt Groening's (creator of the Simpsons) son is a Newgrounds fan, and Matt showed the video to Weird Al during a Simpsons party at his house. Daniel was contacted by Al's drummer and manager, and soon found himself with back-stage passes for a Weird Al concert, where he got to meet Al and take some pictures!

The entire story will forever be documented in the history section. You can read Daniel's account first-hand! It's pretty inspiring to think about who might be watching your submissions!


Nightmare Cops, the game JohnnyUtah, Spazkid and I have been working on.

That sucked!

What do you mean?

The Graphics gave me a heart attack!

Well, what surprised ME is angels in that submission are dead. Angels don't die, and I love angels, so that's why I'm offended from that.

Worst Shit ever!

You don't have to like it if you don't want to.

I'm going to blam this

You can't. It has already passed judgement, so no matter how much you vote low every day, it's inevitable. Just so you know. You can only blam crappy flashes when they are under judgement, okay?
