Weird Al Yankovic Commandeers Yahoo Music Instagram

The man who paved the way for The Lonely Island and so many others is now showing Yahoo the social media way.

Per the following slide show, Weird Al Yankovic was given the keys to the Yahoo Music Instagram account Thursday as he traveled for his book tour to Cincinnati. In first class, Yankovic made sure to rest up:

The Weird One went on to share quick snaps from three straight hours of telephone interviews, a super-crowded bookstore and the Cincinnati streets. Enjoy and, if not fixed at press time, ignore a human error in the intro that references July 27 (rather than June 27). Weird Al is good, but he’s not that time-traveling good.

P.S. From our perspective, the only thing missing from Yankovic’s gallery is a WKRP, Les Nesmond etc. reference.
