Default Weird Al

The Hollywood Chamber of Commerce announced today that “Weird Al” Yankovic will be honored with the 2,643rd star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame on Monday, August 27th, at 11:30 a.m. PDT. The star will be dedicated in the category of Recording at 6914 Hollywood Boulevard across the street from the TCL Chinese Theatre.

“Weird Al has single-handedly created an industry of parody! His fans have been waiting for this star for a very long time. We are excited to honor this very funny man on our world-famous Hollywood Walk of Fame,” stated Ana Martinez, Producer of the Walk of Fame ceremonies.

President of the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce Leron Gubler will unveil the star, along with help from Dr. Demento and Thomas Lennon.

The Walk of Fame star ceremony is free and open to the public. The Hollywood Chamber of Commerce encourages people who are unable to attend and fans around the world to watch the event exclusively on www.walkoffame.com.

This is great! I was just listening to a Weird Al parody of “Party in the USA” a couple days ago, and thinking “Bermuda must have been so bored on this tune” LOL

For Bermuda indeed. I don't wish to misspeak, but I think the entire band has been together for quite some time.

The Walk of Fame is a huge deal-and well deserved. Weird Al, and band, has been "at it" for quite some time. I like some of their parodies better than the original.

I agree. Everytime I hear "Our Loves in Jeopardy" I sing "I Lost on Jeopardy" without even thinking.

This is awesome. Very much deserved, an honestly about time.
