Turns out, this week’s Presidential Debate between President Donald Trump and former Vice President Joe Biden is even more dramatic and explosive when moderated by none other than pop culture/music/comedy legend “Weird Al” Yankovic.

After Tuesday night’s chaotic debate, musical comedy group The Gregory Brothers teamed up with Yankovic for an Auto-Tune remix titled, appropriately enough given the state of things in 2020, “We’re All Doomed.”

It’s a wild ride, with Moderator Al asking the candidates questions like “2020’s a raging hellscape. Any ideas on how to stop a worldwide plague?”

Kudos to “Weird Al” Yankovic and the Gregory Brothers for the lightning-quick turnaround on this production, which surfaced online less than 24 hours after the actual debate.

Yankovic has kept plenty busy in recent months, keeping his irreplaceable knack for parody art alive by impersonating Ted Nugent on an episode of the new season of Reno 911 on Quibi:

On a related “Weird Al” topic, a new coffee table book will be released in October bringing together a number of black-and-white photos compiled by Yankovic’s longtime drummer, Jon “Bermuda” Schwartz.

Schwartz was keen to document everything, and 1984 Publishing will bring forth Black & White & Weird All Over: The Lost Photographs of “Weird Al” Yankovic ’83 – ’86 — which is precisely what it sounds like. Hundreds of black-and-white photos from Schwartz, who accompanied Yankovic in nearly everything he did for much of his career.

Yankovic also received some high-profile accolades from one of his favorite artists — Dave Davies of the Kinks — who said he was always a fan of “Yoda,” Yankovic’s parody of “Lola.”
