Weird Al Yankovic Posts His In-Series JoJo's Bizarre Adventure Reference on Instagram

posted on by Lynzee Loveridge

Either parody musical artist Weird Al Yankovic is a fan of JoJo's Bizarre Adventure, or someone sent him a clip referencing his popular parody "Eat It," a cover of Michael Jackson's "Beat It."

In the final episode, Jotaro quizzes his grandfather Joseph asking him, "Who sang the the parody of 'Beat It,' named 'Eat It?' Joseph responds with "Al Yankovic." His grandson acknowledges his correct answer with "Good grief. I guess you are the real thing if you know pointless crap like that." Yankovic posted the clip on his Instagram with the hashtag #pointlesscrap.

The world of JoJo's Bizarre Adventure is filled with music references. Many of the enemies names are taken from popular artists, a copyright headache in itself leading to name changes in the English manga release and English subtitles.

Thanks to Ian Pete Titular for the news tip.
