Bob by Weird Al' Yankovic is one of those songs which can be incredibly irritating as, ostensibly, it means very little. The fact it’s clever (one could even say pallin-dramatic!) might not endear it any further to some but it certainly grabbed the attention of Oliver Smith. He was looking for a song which contained as many potential fake film titles as possible.

He managed to find 38 in total – all of which could, at one level or another, be given to a movie as its title. The result is something quite ingenious. My own favorite comes early in with a possible Gene Wilder movie To Hot to Hoot. You will see many major movie stars and a number of famous studios and director name checked in the next few minutes…
