In this episode, he digs into the comedy vault for Weird Al’s 1989 cult classic UHF, and serves up a dish that sounds way more disgusting than it actually tastes. Grab the recipe for Babish’s version here.

While at home during California’s shelter-in-place mandate, “Weird Al” Yankovic decided to bust out his accordion and serenade his neighborhood in the hills with a little impromptu concert. His performance of Mason Williams’s 1968 instrumental Classical Gas is wonderfully expressive and heartfelt.

Fans of “Weird Al” Yankovic finally have a Chia Pet to call their own. NECA’s officially-licensed clay head lets you grow the novelty musician’s iconic ‘fro atop his noggin, so you can watch your plants grow as you crank up some White & Nerdy. We wonder if you could get some seeds to sprout from his mustache.

Unmade: Accordion Repo Man

Before he was the world’s number one novelty musician, ‘Weird Al’ Yankovic actually had to repossess accordions as part of his job. That gave him the idea to make a movie about it. Now IMDb’s Unmade has brought the badly-conceived superhero movie to life.

We’ve already heard Weezer cover Toto’s 1982 hit Africa, and now we have an official music video. But Weezer is nowhere to be seen. Instead, “Weird Al” Yankovic stands in for Rivers Cuomo, lip syncing lead vocals, while poking fun at Undone – The Sweater Song.

Weird Al x Portugal. The Man

Weird Al x Portugal. The Man

Feel it Still from beloved Oregon-based group Portugal. The Man is, as we know, super catchy – but how much catchier is it when Weird Al does a remix? You can decide while you let the happy accordion sounds roll around in your ears.

While we love “Weird Al” Yankovic for his silly novelty songs, he’s got other talents too. Here, he pays a tribute to the late George Harrison with a fantastic performance of What Is Life during George Fest. Randumbify did a great editing together various cellphone vids.

As part of his extensive Squeeze Box retrospective, “Weird Al” Yankovic dusted off this previously unreleased 1982 parody of the Beatles’ song Taxman, replacing its subject with one more appropriate to the time – at the height of Pac-Man Fever. Wakka-wakka-wakka.

Every Post-game Press Conference

Every Post-game Press Conference

xkcd already summed it up best, but The Kicker does a pretty good job of generalizing what goes on in post-game press cons, with help from Weird Al. Seriously though, these things are worthless. Everyone already knows what everyone else is going to say.

Weird Al: Grammy Award Unboxing

Weird Al: Grammy Award Unboxing

Earlier this year, “Weird Al” Yankovic won a Grammy Award for best comedy album. Here, he unboxes his shiny prize, which showed up several months later on his doorstep. We’ll be keeping an eye on eBay for when Al starts selling duplicates.

Weird Al: The Mysterious Floating Orb

Weird Al: The Mysterious Floating Orb

Nah, this isn’t a parody of a The Orb song. It’s just a simple magic trick that Weird Al Yankovic recently learned. You can pull it off too. All you need is a shirt and a trip to the kitchen.

Weird Al’s anthem for people who are saddled with human spam. Share the song to them for a not-so-subtle hint. Of course they might think the song sucks and hate you for forwarding crap to them.

Weird Al Plays On

Weird Al Plays On

Weird Al plays the lead musician on a sinking ship in this video from College Humor; the medley of songs he delivers when the captain requests him to play on is definitely not what anyone is expecting.
