Retro Video of the Week: "Like a Surgeon" by Weird Al Yankovic

Thirty years ago this week, Weird Al released his seminal third album, Dare to Be Stupid.  The album has gone on to achieve platinum status, and it spawned the enduring parody of Madonna's "Like a Virgin":  "Like a Surgeon."  The parody nearly cracked the Top 40 in 1985, topping out at #47, making it Weird Al's second-most successful single up to that point.
