“Weird Al” Yankovic Is NOT ON MY F@$%ING TEMPO!
The editing on this Whiplash parody is so good it took me a full minute to realize that it wasn’t new footage of J.K. Simmons. Not only does it prove Weird Al to be perfectly handy at sketch comedy, but makes me think that perhaps a UHF 2 isn’t out of the question.
In the sketch, Al wants to prepare for his “Mandatory World Tour,” in support of his hit album Mandatory Fun, so he hires Terence Fletcher, the terrifying music instructor from Whiplash, to “whip” him into shape.
Needless to say, Weird Al is not quite on Fletcher’s tempo.
