‘Weird Al’ Yankovic on his most-watched shows: ‘It’s a strange place’
Weird Al Yankovics has become a national icon thanks to his hit music, but it is his most popular show that has captured the nation’s imagination the most.
The show, which began airing in 2012 and now has a total audience of about 1 billion people, has become such a phenomenon that the producers have released a short documentary about the series.
In the trailer, the host talks about how the show has influenced his life and how it has been able to help him achieve his goal of becoming a filmmaker.
“It’s kind of weird,” Yankoviics says.
“You get to do what you love and you don’t know what you’re doing.
It’s a weird place.”
Yankova says he and his wife are fortunate to have a job as a music director, and that he finds that the show, like any other, helps him get into the studio and make something special.
“When I started out, I was always like, ‘I have to make my own music.
That’s my only way to do it,'” he says.
Yankovsky said he had a lot of advice for young musicians.
“I would say the first thing that you should do is to do something that’s really, really good,” he says, adding that he wants to help young musicians succeed and make money as well.
“Do something you love.
If you can do something great, you’re going to have the opportunity to make money.”
