This is a truly amazing performance. Jodi is 13 year old musician with autism that performed at Night of Too Many Stars with the Actionplay chorus. Weird Al Yankovic is not her first celebrity to appear and perform with, in 2012 she performed "Firework" with Katie Perry.
Nobody does better song parodies than "Weird Al" Yankovic. In fact, when I play some songs on 96.1 WODZ like "My Sharona", I think of "Weird Al's" "My Bologna", or "Jeopardy", I think of his parody, "I Lost On Jeopardy". "Just For Laughs", let's see what he can do with a Michael Jackson tune.
It's almost impossible to stay on topic when interviewing 'Weird Al'. He's a walking encyclopedia of popular culture knowledge and every answer leaves multiple alleyways to explore. Ahead, the topics covered include 'Star Wars,' 'UHF,' Charlie Kaufman, Malcolm Gladwell, Bruce Springsteen, 'The LEGO' Movie, his is favorite movie of all-time, Joe Piscopo, 'The Naked Gun,' 'Rocky' and a host of other topics that don't have much to do with one another.
Yesterday marks the first day where Weird Al releases one video to correspond with a track on his new record for the next 8 days straight. Given the smashing success of Pharrell's 'Happy', it's no accident that this is the first one out and it is absolutely EPIC!
