Fans who saw “Weird Al” Yankovic‘s show in Seattle this week took a trip back to the ’90s when The Presidents of the United States of America frontman Chris Ballew made a surprise appearance.

Ballew took the stage to join Yankovic for a rendition of the PUSA hit “Peaches.” In addition to hearing Al sing the immortal line “Peaches come from a can/They were put there by a man,” the crowd was also treated to the two artists jumping in unison for a song-ending high kick.

You can watch official footage of the performance streaming now on YouTube.

You may recall that Yankovic previously put his own spin on the PUSA song “Lump,” turning it into the Forrest Gump-referencing “Gump.” However, Al’s been taking a break from his parody songs on his ongoing Unfortunate Return of the Ridiculously Self-Indulgent Ill-Advised Vanity tour, which features a set of almost entirely original material.

While Al is certainly a fan of “Peaches,” the same can’t be said for Larry David. You may recall that the song was included in an episode of Curb Your Enthusiasm last year, during which David’s character called it “idiotic.”

Ballew, however, was honored, writing in an Instagram post, “I am complete now that I have received Larry David’s scorn.”
