That was bloody incredible. So topical and so needed right now!! I had the same reaction to this as listening to a song on a new studio album for the first time.

Please release this as a single, we will happily buy it!

Edit: Could this be the last track on Medium Rarities? It seems unlikely, but possible...

If you don't have time to watch the entire episode (or have young children and don't want them hearing Oliver's profanity), Al's contribution to the show goes from 24:36 to 26:49.

Best new Weird Al song since Mandatory Fun, by a mile!

So great to see Al on LWT! The extremely awkward chemistry between Al and John at the end is all a fan of both could ever ask for.

That explains why it's blocked over here - it's the full episode. :(

Nope. Al stated that he wrote this song, which automatically disqualifies it (Bermuda said it wasn't an Al song)

Considering that Bermuda began teasing that there was an additional track long before the latest detente between the President and North Korea, there's no way this is the track he was referring to. However, it would be great to tack it on to the end anyway!!

I am very surprised to read Al's instagram post that he actually wrote this song. I had always assumed that the end segments on LWT were written by the show's writers, especially considering the lyrics referenced a few specific jokes from the episode.
