Emmy Awards 2014: Weird Al knocks it out of the park (Video)

Weird Al Yankovic knocks it out of the park with a spectacular Emmy performance.

The 66th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards are in full swing on NBC tonight at the Nokia Theatre in Los Angeles.

Emmy host Seth Meyers has kept the comedy coming all night long; however, everything seriously kicked into high gear when Weird Al Yankovic showed up on the scene.

Weird Al took the stage to perform a skit about some of the best series on television right now. He touched on everything from AMC’s Mad Men to ABC’s drama Scandal and even HBO’s highest rated television series Game of Thrones.

We think it is safe to say that the portion of the performance about Game of Thrones was by far the funniest skit of the entire evening. Weird Al even points out the father of the entire series, George R.R. Martin in the crowd as King Joffrey (not the real one)  brings him a typewriter and press him to crank out more amazing work.

Everything came to a head with Weird Al screaming out Valor Morghulis and holding his sword high above his head.

Seriously…you have to see this for yourselves.
