“Weird Al” Yankovic Parodies the Presidential Debate in “Bad Hombres, Nasty Women” Video

The newest from The Gregory Brothers comedy team and their Songify series—which has been committed to autotuning and quantizing political happenings to the beat throughout this election cycle—is a complex symphony created out of shards from the third presidential debate. Some clever lines (a mournful “Mosul, mosul, mosul/So sad, so sad” from the Republican nominee, for instance) make this one particularly successful, but the attraction is the Weird Al’s guest turn playing moderator Chris Wallace while descending into computerized hellfire. It’s probably as good an antidote to the trauma of this “election” as any. Watch it below.
