Music spot: "Coronavirus Alert" by Nathan Grammer, parody of "Virus Alert" by Weird Al
Weird Al Yankovic is the American equivalent of the Barron Knights and he made his name and has spent most of his career parodying the songs of other artists.
One of his comparatively few original songs was "Virus Alert" which takes the mickey out of the warnings of (usually) non-existent viruses which circulate on email.
Nathan Grammer has written an extremely clever parody, "Coronavirus Alert," about the COVID-19 pandemic, which parodies "Virus Alert" in the same way that Weird Al parodies everyone else.
