‘Weird Al’ Parodied All of Your Favorite TV Theme Songs at the Emmys

Well, it may not be the Super Bowl, but “Weird Al” Yankovic made his way to a major television event last night for the 66th annual Primetime Emmy Awards. Midway through the show, the Mandatory Fun star came out on stage for a live performance that parodied the theme songs of a number of shows nominated for awards.

Mad Men’s instrumental theme became a barb about Jon Hamm’s bad Emmy luck, and Game of Thrones naturally turned into a boob joke (aided by a surprise Andy Samberg appearance as enfant terrible Joffrey Baratheon) and the rapid-fire needling didn’t end there. Theme songs from Modern Family, Homeland, and Scandal also drew the chart-topping parody artist’s ire. He may not have gotten through as many songs in as short a period as Ted Leo and Aimee Mann did a few months back, but you have to give him credit for hilarious moments like physically handing George R.R. Martin a typewriter and prompting him to finish up A Song of Fire and Ice.

Needless to say, the whole thing is pretty hilarious and you can watch it above.
