That was actually very entertaining.
He's always been pretty brilliant.

I remember listening to him late on Sunday nights on a FM radio on Doctor Demento in the 70's.

Kind of a more comedy oriented Frank Zappa.

"In the 1970s, Yankovic was a big fan of Elton John and claims John's Goodbye Yellow Brick Road album "was partly how I learned to play rock 'n roll on the accordion."[10] As for his influences in comedic and parody music, Yankovic lists artists including Tom Lehrer, Stan Freberg, Spike Jones, Allan Sherman, Shel Silverstein and Frank Zappa "and all the other wonderfully sick and twisted artists that he was exposed to through the Dr. Demento Radio Show."[8][13] Other sources of inspiration for his comedy come from Mad magazine,[10] Monty Python,[14] and the Zucker, Abrahams and Zucker parody movies."
