Visuals Lyrics
Cut to a stage with a band playing and "Weird Al" Yankovic in the middle. There is a sign reading "WELCOME TO COMDEX". On "Pentiums", the screen shows the left side of the band, and the right on "baby". During the line, Al takes off his jacket and throws it into the crowd. After the line, cut to the crowd, all in business clothes. They are raising a fist, then lowering it, and doing it with the other side. Then, cut to a far-off view of the stage, where we notice a disco ball in the center. Al starts raising and lowering his hands in unison. Cut to Al, then a guitar player. It's All About The Pentiums, baby
Then, cut to a man wearing a suit and raising a fist at the end of the first "Uh." Cut to the earlier seen guitar player, then to another man in a suit giving two thumbs-up signs at the end of the first "yeah." Cut to a full shot of the band, and on the third "uh", cut to the drummer. Cut to another man in a suit raising a fist. Cut back to Al. A little later we hear the last sentance. Uh. Uh-huh, yeah. Uh. Uh-huh, yeah.
Cut to a street outside of a glass office building. A pink and white 50's style car pulls up. It's all about the Pentiums, baby
Cut to the side of the car, where Al opens the door and doves fly out. Uh.
On "baby", cut to the top of the car. It's all about the Pentiums, baby
Cut to the front of the car, where Al stands up along with a woman in a silver jumpsuit. After the line, two more women in silver jumpsuits get out from the back. It's all about the Pentiums!
The four walk towards the camera. Before "Yeah!", the camera fades in to a closer shot of the fours' faces, and another woman has appeared behind them. Fade out. It's all about the Pentiums! Yeah!
Cut to Al, looking down towards the camera and walking down a green cubicle corridor. He moves his left hand to "Whatcha wanna", and his right on "do." Whatcha'll wanna do?
He moves his hands one after the other to the words up to "hackers." On "hackers", he moves his left hand to both syllables. Wanna be hackers?
He moves his left hand on "Code crackers", and his right on "slackers." Code crackers, slackers
Cut to a moving view of a confused woman's face, while sheworks at her computer. On "chatroom", cut back to Al, standing up straight. He sings the rest of the line.Wastin' time with all the chatroom yakkers
Al moves his hand behind him and wiggles his fingers. 9 to 5 chillin' at Hewlett-Packard
On "at", cut to an orange room, with a man looking at a card. On "with", he holds it up for the camera to see. It says "YOU WANT IT WHEN?" at the bottom, with four laughing people at the top. Workin' at a desk with a dumb little placard
Cut back to the green corridor. Al is moving his right shoulder, then vice versa. On "with my", he changes it from right to left, to left to right. Yeah, payin' the bills with my mad programming skills.
On every Yeah!, a man working in a cubicle yells the word. On "thrills", Al does vice versa.Yeah!Defraggin' myYeah! hard driveYeah! for thrillsYeah!

Cut to a black dancefloor in the green office. Al is in the center with his arm raised. 6 women in silver jumpsuits are dancing in the background. The camera rotates around Al. Installed a T1 line in my house
Cut to the 6 women dancing. On "double", cut back to Al, who has his arms raised in a 90 degree angle, and moves his hands while he sings the rest of the line. Always at my PC double clickin' on my miz-ouse
