When Thriller was on top of the charts in 1983, a mild-mannered parody musician by the name of "Weird Al" Yankovic decided to take a stab at MJ's smash single "Beat It." When it was released in 1983, the single reached #1 in Australia and became Yankovic's highest-charting US single.

The most amazing thing about the video for "Eat It" is that Yankovic did a shot-for-shot remake of Jackson's version. I think my favorite part is when one of gang members literally pulls his girlfriend's head off and then kisses her. See for yourself...

And the original...
