Wierd Al Beverly Hillbillies Theme Set To Dire Straits "Money For Nothing"

I never knew Mark Knophler of Dire Straits played guitar on the parody of "Money For Nothing" in the Wierd Al movie UHF.  The video for the song can be seen here.  Wierd Al says it's one of his most memorable encounters with an artist.  Wierd Al said when he called Mark to get his permission to parody his song, Mark said "yes....but only if I can play guitar on the track"  and he did!!  Enjoy the laugh!
