Made out like a bandit on my 3rd birthday. #tbt
It's the 20th anniversary of my old children's TV show - The Weird Al Show on CBS - and Rolling Stone just published an amazing oral history.

#tbt In 1985, I decided I didn't want to bother selling my beat-up old Toyota Corolla, so I let MTV paint it up like a big Hawaiian shirt and give it away as part of their "Let's Make a Music Deal" contest promotion. The winners would either get an amazing Tom Petty package, an incredible David Bowie package, or my car. The three winners each picked one of three doors and found out which prize they actually won on live national TV. The woman that won my car was a big David Bowie fan, and she was soooooo unhappy. I handed her the keys (again, on live TV) and she angrily threw them to the ground, screamed "I don't WANT your car!!!" and stormed off the set. Fun times!
Can't find the emoji buttons.
Behold! NECA Toys just announced their next Weird Al action figure.
"Classical Gas" was my favorite song when I was 10 years old, and I still love it just as much today. Tonight I met its creator, the legendary Mason Williams.
I'm very excited to be going to the Los Angeles opening of Hamilton tonight. In the meantime, I'm watching this video of Lin-Manuel Miranda dancing to my Tone Loc parody in 1991.
John Oliver decided I was the only human who could successfully de-escalate the nuclear crisis, so I wrote "The North Korea Polka (Please Don't Nuke Us)" and performed it on his HBO show last night. Huge thanks to John and his entire wonderful Last Week Tonight team for making this happen.
