"Weird Al" Yankovic Goes Beyond Insanity While Eating Spicy Wings | Hot Ones

  • Published: 20 December 2018
  • "Weird Al" Yankovic is the king of parody songs, with a multi-decade career that includes four Grammys, countless Top 40 hits, and a long list of live shows, including 2019's Strings Attached Tour. But how is he with spicy food? Find out as the "White & Nerdy" icon takes on the vegan wings of death in a very special Hot Ones season finale. As the Scovilles mount, Weird Al shares classic anecdotes about meeting Sir Paul McCartney and Michael Jackson, getting co-signed by Kurt Cobain, and inventing the infamous Twinkie wiener sandwich.

    Special thanks to Mr. Yankovic's groomer, Sean James!

      Make sure your contracts with the guests specify they need to eat the wing. Its to easy to get through what you should never get through if you take a crumb.

      Weird Al Yankovick did this Goonies parody song. but I can't think of what the title of it was. so does anyone know the Goonies Parody song? I know the Homer and Marge song because I'm a big time fan of the Simpsons. and just like Homer I enjoy a box of donuts. I am not a fan of beer tried it once then said no way. even sampled Carona it tastes like dog piss. lost on Jeopardy was a big favorite of mine. Virus Alert another great one next to Weasley stomping day. May them songs continue on always.

                  This interview was great, but come on Al, you gotta take a bigger bite than that. I'm not asking for any crazy reactions, but his voice barely got horse he wasn't sweating. Anyways, whatever, funny as hell comments and it was still a nice interview. Always enjoyed Al's work. Him being in Epic Rap Battles of History was fantastic.

                                              Did anyone else catch the edit at the end? Sean unbuttoned his accordion and then when Al starts playing, Sean's accordion is buttoned back up.

                                                Not going to lie, this one was disappointing. Al took small bites, and never had to take a drink. Which makes me feel like he was faking it.

I understand the Napster thing but I Knew if An Artist Did Not Release It in Cassette or THE BRAND NEW CD it was FAKE FUN!!! Sometimes Not Fun! Just Mean And Hateful! Internet Dial Up was how it started! 0 Phone line available so Highly Limited Access as a Kid! Cell Phone???? What's That? 90s ohh that Brick Cell Phone that Cost Thousands and Hundreds More a Mpnth For Service??? I Realized During the Early Release of the Internet Lies ALOT!!! Then Noticed NEWS LIES, 9/11 In Colorado Springs during my Sophomore Year in High School PULLED FROM SCHOOL by 8:00am school starts at 7:10am!!! CITY WAS LOCKED UP! ALL THE BASES AND NORAD we are surrounded by were CALLED IN!!! Colorado Springs was in DEADLOCK All Day!!! All Military Called In which is 75%+ of the City! WATCHED IT LIVE WHILE THE DAY BEFORE WATCHING DEMOLISHION SHOWS THAT WERE POPULAR AT THE TIME!!!! FAKE NEWS OPENED MY EYES OVER 25 YEARS AGO! POLITICIANS, The Rich, The Famous, ETC... I DO NOT TRUST!!! If they hold An Anti Anything American Freedom Stance I STOP SUPPORTING THEM!!!
