If you've ever been to Disneyland, chances are you've ridden the Jungle Cruise and will understand the woes felt by "Weird Al" Yankovic's "Skipper Dan."

In "Weird Al" Yankovic's song, Skipper Dan is a boat operator at Disneyland's Jungle Cruise ride. It's a soul-sucking position for this Juilliard grad and accomplished actor, but it's the closest he'll get to his Hollywood dream. The animated music video was created by Divya Srinivasan.

Implications - If you've ever traveled to Disneyland you'll certainly a kick or two from listening to this comedic and upbeat tune. Weird Al's ability to completely transform a popular song into something to which people can actually relate is incredible. Time can only tell what song Weird Al will reinvent next.
