Weird Al Yankovic Leaves Drag At Home, Performs With The Roots On ‘Jimmy Fallon’

Quite frankly, we were hoping Weird Al Yankovic’s appearance on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon would have consisted of him descending on stage while decked out in full-on jerkified Lady Gaga meat-dress drag (a la his “Perform This Way” video). Alas, Yankovic, whose Alpocolypse was released today, wore a suit and tie and stood off to the side throughout the evening, accompanying Jimmy’s house band the Roots on accordion. Head below to watch a web exclusive of Al and the band rocking out the instrumental “Beer Barrel Polka.”
