“Weird Al” Yankovic Makes An Icky Thump In Honor Of Charles Nelson Reilly

The latest effort from “Weird Al” Yankovic pays homage to the late “celebrity-panel” staple Charles Nelson Reilly, transforming the Match Game old reliable into a superhuman who can not only swallow German crafted automobiles, he can skip the line at the DMV. (Now that is power.) In case the image above didn’t hint at it, Al here is paying tribute to the White Stripes, and the song is a pretty spot-on take on their minimalist thrash-and-bash style. Clip after the jump.

Al has taken on the White Stripes before—in “Angry White Boy Polka,” which also pulls off the amazing feat of making a Staind song somewhat enjoyable to listen to.
