‘Weird Al’ Yankovic Celebrates His Zany Biopic By Performing His Greatest Hits With Classroom Instruments

“Weird Al” Yankovic appeared on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon. With the help of Fallon himself and house band The Roots, Yankovic performed a medley of his greatest hits — including “Another One Rides The Bus,” “Eat It,” and more. Giving even more of a comedic spin, the group performed with only classroom instruments for children. Needless to say, it still ruled, even with a tiny accordion and xylophone.

Yankovic’s presence was in support of his recent biopic, which is currently streaming on Roku. Starring actor Daniel Radcliffe playing the accordion legend, Weird: The Al Yankovic Story is a zany, heightened portrayal of the musician’s life.

“It’s not a documentary, it’s inspired by real life,” Yankovic shared. “And there are enough nuggets of truth sprinkled throughout that I think you can call it a biopic in that sense. I’ve seen a few more biopics since my movie was done, and I still think, yeah, that’s not any less true than my movie.”

Along with the movie, Yankovic recently dropped a new song, “Now You Know.” Yankovic, along with Radcliffe and his co-star Evan Rachel Wood, had been campaigning for the single to get a submission to the Oscars. Roku, the streaming service, ultimately declined — as they are opting for Emmy nominations instead.
