Watch: Weird Al Gets Whiplashed in Hilarious CollegeHumor Original

J.K. Simmons’ ruthless music teacher J. Jonah Jameson appears to have finally moved on from Miles Teller’s aspiring drummer. 

Only now, an even greater challenge has been placed in front of the “Whiplash” villain: Weird Al Yankovic, fresh off his Grammy win for Best Comedy Album, is striving to perfect his work on the accordion as he gears up for The Mandatory World Tour.

Fans of “Whiplash” should get a kick out of this spoof, as Oscar-nominated Simmons repeatedly spouts out that terrifying phrase, “Not quite my tempo,”  at an increasingly-befuddled Yankovic. “When I said I wanted to be ‘perfect,’ I didn’t mean ‘perfect perfect,'” the Grammy winner nervously explains. But as viewers learned all too well in “Whiplash,” once you’ve got Jameson’s attention, there’s no going back.

Will Yankovic rise to the occasion? Watch the CollegeHumor original below to find out.
