We previously wrote about “Weird Al” Yankovic creating an incredible Polka version of the Hamilton soundtrack. A few days after that debut, Hamilton creator Lin-Manuel Miranda and “Weird Al” appeared together on the Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon and lip-synched the polka version. Pretty soon, the whole touring cast was lip-syncing the “Hamilton Polka”.
With that “Weird Al” became part of the extended Hamilton history. The The Weird Alphabet put together a rather meta way to celebrate with a parody of the song “Alexander Hamilton” entitled “Alfred Matthew Yankovic”.
Alfred Matthew Yankovic.
My name is Alfred Matthew Yankovic.
I can’t find and rhyme for “Yankovic.”
But just you wait. Just you wait.
