Take my favorite musician/recording artist ever and add in my favorite movie of 2014 and you have a recipe for greatness. â€œWeird Alâ€ Yankovic has teamed up with Oscar contender for Best Picture, Whiplash, to promote his upcoming world tour â€œMandatory.â€ Whiplash is the story of a drum prodigy tested by his abusive jazz conductor college professor played by Oscar nominee J.K. Simmons. In Weird Al Gets Whiplashed, a video produced by College Humor, Weird Al stands in for Miles Tellerâ€™s character Andrew, while his patented accordion replaces the drums. The performer is excited for his upcoming world tour and is trying to get â€œperfectâ€ with the help of Simmonsâ€™ Fletcher. While Simmonsâ€™s scenes from the film remain perfectly intact, this hilarious 4-plus minutes video has Weird Al voicing to Simmons what most viewers of the film wanted to yell at the screen.
