Weird Al Performs 'Yoda' With Autistic Girl And Choir To Raise Money For Autism

March 10, 2015


This is a video from Comedy Central's Night Of Too Many Stars featuring Weird Al and Jodi DiPiazza performing Weird Al's Star Wars themed parody of the Kinks' 'Lola', entitled 'Yoda'. Jodi was diagnosed with autism at the age of two and has already accomplished more in her life than I could if I lived to 150 and was actually able to function and not just piss myself the last 50 years. The pair are also backed by the Actionplay Chorus, which is a choir of children with autism. So, REAL TALK: you ever cried during a performance of a Star Wars themed parody song before? Because you're about to.

Keep going for the video.

Thanks to Lydia, who agrees Weird Al should write a parody of Taylor Swift's 'Blank Space' called 'Ten Paces' about a wild west duel.

    Wow, Weird Al sure looks old. I mean, he's not young... But he looks like he's actually aging unlike other famous people who don't look like they're aging.

  • Emmitt Morgans

    Well... 'Yoda' was released 30 years ago.


    I think he looks amazing for that being the case.

  • GeneralDisorder

    Weird Al is in his 50s I think. Compare that to Shatner who is 84 give or take. Sure, Weird Al looks pretty good but when 80something Shatner looks like he could have gone to high school with Weird Al... Clearly Shatner spent a few truckloads of money on plastic surgery.

    Alfred seems to be doing it the natural way. I wouldn't have ever thought being vegan is a good thing, but Mr. Yankovic is making it look like it could actually be an option!

    None of those autistic kids had polio.


  • Emmitt Morgans

    You make a good point, but the logic there is ALMOST as flawed as the faked study that suggested autism was caused by vaccinations.


  • Bling Nye

    Mine's funnier.

  • Emmitt Morgans

    I'm not disputing that, it's an ingenious insight!

  • Andyman7714

    Yeah, I teared up. SHUT UP!

  • Tyguy

    I teared up too....that CGI Yoda in the newer movies just isn't the same as the OG puppet.

    How about a Yoda Muppet?
