"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.

    Weird Al takes top spot on the wall of shame. He didn't even eat the wings he practically licked them. Cheaters should get no credit on Hot Ones.

        Weird Al took some dainty-ass bites, that’s for sure
        But you’ll never change my opinion on Weird Al

          I would suck at this. I can take the heat but my voice goes out and I hiccup uncontrollably. I used to have a YouTube channel where my son and I would eat fresh chilies then just ride it out, no water or icecream. I have eaten most of the major chilies, and some obscure ones as well. This makes me miss those days, but I do not miss the capsaicin cramps. I am going to order some of these sauces for sure.

                    Invite him back for just a minute just to have him actually eat one wing like a normal person and not so weird like he was doing. Owe wait... never mind.

                      I notice the clip of Tenacious D didn't show Jack actually eating the wing. Al would have been humbled by the comparison. Jack was like a cartoon character, inserting entire leg into his mouth and pulling out a clean bone. I don't think I've seen that since Fred Flintstone.

                                      okay, so here's my pitch:
                                      "Hi, I'm Andy Samberg."
                                      "And I'm Weird Al Yankovic!"
                                      *In unison* "And this is 'Punching Celebrities in the face, just before eating spicy wings, then asking them questions, and then doing a zombie dance together!"
                                      Andy: "Who do we have one the show today, Al?"
                                      Al: "The one, of two, of Tenacious D, the only, he's not Jack White, he's JACK BLACK!"
                                      *Jack Black comes on stage, in Jack Black fashion* "Glad to be here fellas, love your work! We should do a little collab thingy together sometime guys!"
                                      Andy: "That's what we're doing now, th- That's the show."
                                      Jack: "No man! I mean, MUSIC MAN! It's all about the music bro! Come on! Get on my page, vibe with me, Buddy."
                                      Al: "That's actually a great idea, Jack, maybe we could get the rest of the lonely island to jump in and really blow it out of the water! I would expect nothing less from you, a fellow man of culture, who also has a Star on the Hollywood walk of fame.... Say, Andy..."
                                      Andy: "... Don't"
                                      Al: "Where's YOUR star, Andy?"
                                      Andy: "How about a hot wing, Al?" *Punches Al*
                                      Jack: "Ho ho! Good times!"

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.
