Music video by "Weird Al" Yankovic performing Fat. 

(C) 1988 Volcano Entertainment lll, LLC

"Fat" is a song by "Weird Al" Yankovic. It is a parody of "Bad" by Michael Jackson. It is Yankovic's second parody of a Jackson song, the first being "Eat It", a parody of Jackson's "Beat It". "Fat" is the first song on Yankovic's Even Worse album.

The video won a Grammy Award for Best Concept Music Video in 1988.

Yankovic came up with the idea for Fat while watching the Bad music video, when he had an epiphany that a parody of that song titled Fat would be a good sequel to Eat It (a previous Weird Al Michael Jackson parody). As he watched the Bad video, he imagined an obese version of himself trying to get through the turnstiles on a subway, and resolved that he would do it.

The video for "Fat" parodies various elements of the "Bad" video by Jackson; Yankovic was able to get permission from Michael Jackson to use the same subway set from "Bad" for the video. (Jackson had built an exact replica of the original set for the movie Moonwalker to be used in the segment called "Badder", and before striking it, he offered to allow Yankovic to use it.)
