Musician and parodiest Weird Al was scheduled to have his new video, “White and Nerdy” enjoy a world premiere through AOL.

Unfortunately, somebody found and leaked the video on the popular YouTube site, and enough people had already viewed it that AOL decided to pull the plug on the premiere.


Said Weird Al on his MySpace space, “I’m very sorry to say that the AOL “First View” Premiere of the “White & Nerdy” video has been cancelled.

Apparently, the video has already leaked online, and AOL doesn’t feel comfortable doing a “World Premiere” promotion for a video that a number of people have seen already. (I can understand songs leaking, but a video? How’d THAT happen?)

Anyway, it’s really a bummer… it would have been great promotion for the album… but hey, life goes on.
