A few months ago, we wrote about a grassroots campaign to get Weird Al Yankovic a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Well, the campaign was a partial success: they raised enough money to submit an application, but unfortunately, the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce passed Al over this year in favor of a list that included Matt Damon, Mariah Carey, and Erik Estrada. (Really. Erik Estrada!) So don’t worry, Al-coholics — if Erik can get his own star, Al’s can’t be far off.
