Watch “Weird Al” Yankovic’s Hilarious Emmy Awards Performance

The 66th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards were as insufferable as ever this year. Can someone please explain to me why the Golden Globes and the Tony Awards were each nominated for Emmys?

Gripes aside, there were at least a few bright moments…including when the legendary “Weird Al” Yankovic took to the stage to add his own original lyrics to some of the most popular instrumental theme songs on television, including Mad Men, Scandal, HomelandModern Family, and of course, Game of Thrones.

Now, your mileage will probably vary on how funny this actually was. But I will submit that it’s directly proportional to whether or not you’re a Game of Thrones fan, judging from the many confused friends who texted me during this performance.
