The best part of the night! Weird Al Yankovic performed a hilarious parody of all our favorite shows, including ‘Game of Thrones’, ‘Scandal’ and more!
In one of the most memorable moments of the 2014 Emmy Awards, parody artist Weird Al Yankovic, 54, spoofed the most popular shows on television in one funny performance at the Emmys on Aug. 25. Weird Al brought the laughs and Andy Samberg even dressed up like evil Joffrey from Game of Thrones! Yes, it was that good.
Weird Al Yankovic’s Emmy Performance: Spoofs TV Shows In Hilarious Parody
Weird Al’s performance at the 2014 Emmy Awards was easily the funniest of the night. Host Seth Meyers and Andy Samberg introduced the satirist’s epic number, and added lyrics to all the theme songs!
Weird Al started out with a funny rendition of Mad Men’s theme song, then transitioned over the Scandal. He made fun of the forbidden romance between Olivia Pope and the President — it was so hilarious. Homeland and Modern Family also made Weird Al’s parody list.
However, the best part of Weird Al’s number was his Game of Thrones number.
Backup singers dressed as citizens from Kings Landing and White Walkers accompanied Weird Al’s closing song. Then, Andy came out dressed like Joffrey, blond hair and all! So great!
The final moment included a camera pan to Game of Thrones writer George R.R. Martin, who was seen writing on his typewriter! (He better be finishing up the series!)
