Emmy-nominated television shows get Weird Al theme songs
“Jon Hamm never won an Emmy, but who cares because he’s still Jon freaking Hamm.”
Television theme songs got the Weird Al Yankovic treatment at the Primetime Emmy Awards tonight, as the parody singer performed theme music from nominated shows.
Yankovic had a stream of viral hits this summer as he released videos from multiple songs on his album in a weeklong effort across multiple websites. At the 66th Annual Emmy Awards he reimagined theme songs from hits like Mad Men, Homeland, and Game of Thrones.
Response to the bit was mixed, with some users praising the parody king’s take, and others doubting the bit’s relevance in the evening.
Weird Al got one thing right: “Jon Hamm never won an Emmy, but who cares because he’s still Jon freaking Hamm.” #Emmys

One thing we can all agree on, though? The Game of Thrones chorus: “Type, George, type as fast as you can / We need more scripts.”
