Fans can now get their first look at WEIRD, the "untold true story" of "Weird Al" Yankovic.
On brand for the famed parodist, the movie itself seems to be a spoof of the documentary/biopic genre.
In one scene, as a stage lights up, and throngs of concert fans scream, a listing of Yankovic's real-life accolades appear on screen, including how many Grammys he's won and how many of his records have gone platinum. His hit song, "Like a Surgeon," -- a spoof of Madonna's "Like a Virgin" song, starts to play.
"Hope you guys are ready for this," a shirtless Daniel Radcliffe, who plays Yankovic, tells the crowd, before a shot shows him jumping back up into frame with an accordion.

Apparently, the film will not be a straight-up biopic -- or, as Yankovic says in the teaser: "What can I say? I'm full of surprises."
The film debuts on Roku in the fall.
