If you blinked, you probably missed “Weird Al” Yankovic’s cameo in this summer’s Lonely Island joint Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping. (Or if you’re like most Americans, you missed one of the year’s funniest movies entirely. Luckily for you, you can now watch it at home.)
The UHF alum and musical parodist extraordinaire turned up in the film’s closing moments looking nearly unrecognizable (and a bit like an older version of Mark McGrath from Sugar Ray) as the lead singer of the band Hammerleg, who introduces Conner4Real (Andy Samberg) at the Poppies award show.
Weird Al gave co-directors (and co-writers and co-stars) Akiva Schaffer and Jorma Taccone a few different takes to choose from, and they’ve included a look at them on the upcoming Blu-ray/DVD release. But first you can watch Yankovic do his thing in the above exclusive Popstar clip. It’s vintage Weird Al.
Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping, which also featured cameos from roughly half of the entire music industry, is available on Digital HD today, on-demand Aug. 30, and on DVD and Blu-ray Sept. 13.
