I was listening to the radio a few minutes ago, and they played Devo. And it reminded me of years ago, when I watched the Weird Al Yankovic "Behind the Music" special on VH1. (At this point you may be wondering 'For the love of Pete, why?!', but I have no answer for you. I'm sorry.)

Anyway, they interviewed the guy from Devo about these two songs that Weird Al did that weren't so much parodies of specific Devo songs but more a parody of the whole style. And the guy from Devo basically said that he was pretty upset about it at the time because he heard these parodies and realized that Weird Al, in making fun of him, had actually done what Devo set out to do and he did it better than they had, and then he started CRYING during his WEIRD AL BEHIND THE MUSIC INTERVIEW about this whole thing.

That was a television moment I would personally qualify as "awesome".
