Smells like... what?

I believe that many of you probably know the video for Smells Like Teen Spirit of Nirvana, which was a big hit of the 90s.In fact it seems Cobain wanted to do a song to criticize any move that some pop songs had
and were made ​​only with a commercial purpose, as a result Smells Like became very popular, perhaps the plan Cobain.
Anyway I will speak here of a somewhat interesting parody of this video clip made ​​by musician "Weird Al" Yankovic (aka Alfred Matthew Yankovic) Weird Al has won numerous awards for his parodies, was very successful with most of them.
And in 1992 released the video clip of the song Smells Like Nirvana, he criticizes a bit as the singing of Kurt Cobain is hard to understand sometimes and satirizes various elements of the clip, Al got permission from Nirvana lead singer Kurt Cobain to do the parody while Cobain was doing an episode of Saturday Night Live. Cobain initially thought the song would be about food.
The same janitor qparece the clip of Nirvana was hired to this clip of Weird Al, and even the cover of the album Nevermind was parodied.
Let's see them:
