Weird Al has some competition: Chuck E. Cheese

Kids' pizza chain puts out some quality '80s parody music videos

If you're a parent, chances are you've spent some quality (or not-so-quality) time at a Chuck E. Cheese "restaurant" - watching your kids jump in a ball pit, play video games (or other assorted games-for-ticket contraptions) or just run around screaming. I've done this many times, and while waiting for my kids during one of their birthday parties, I noticed that they have TVs that play assorted parody videos, with songs from the '80s (that most parents of today would recognize).

The company today released a bunch of new parody videos, which I'm sure I'll see the next time my son gets invited to a birthday party there. They are good enough to make Weird Al a bit nervous, methinks.

In this first one, we get a parody of Bobby Brown's "My Prerogative", called "My Karate Kid"

In this next one, we get a parody of Poison's "Every Rose Has a Thorn", entitled "Larry Go to the Store":

Look out for these the next time you're watching another kid step into the Ticket Blaster.
