Watch Weird Al Become Speechless When He Sees His No. 1 Billboard Chart

“This is something that I never thought was possible.”

1. When longtime parody artist Weird Al stopped by AXS TV’s Tom Green Live this week, he got a special surprise from the host: his framed Billboard chart with his album Mandatory Fun in the top spot.

3. This is the first time Yankovic, who has been making comedic tunes for 30 years, has reached the top of the charts, and it was clearly a surreal moment for the musician.

“Wow. Wow,” he said, as he began to tear up. “Thank you. I’m having a moment… this is really amazing.”

5. “How do you feel when you see that?” asked Green.

“It doesn’t feel real,” Al replied. “This is something that I never thought was possible.”

7. So which chart-toppers did the wordsmith have to beat out to get to the first spot? Jason Mraz, Rise Against, Kidz Bop Kids, and the Frozen soundtrack.
