‘Weird Al’ Pics & Video From 1980s VMAs Prove He’s Always Been Weird

Fact: “Weird Al” Yankovic is a national treasure.
Fact: The 1980s were a weird decade.
Fact: The VMAs (airing this year on Sunday, August 24) are a magical gathering where celebs wear awesomely weird outfits.

What do you get when you add these three factors up? Why, these glorious photos and videos of “Weird Al” at the 1987 and 1989 Video Music Awards, of course! We already took a #TBT look back at Britney Spears at the VMAs, and now it’s Al’s turn.

While Madonna and Paula Abdul showed up oozing sex appeal in skin-baring garb, Al did what he did (and does) best…he got weird, and conquered the red carpet by showing off his impressive flexibility in this stellar, classic ’80s getup. Keep doin’ you, Al.
