Wilco‘s Jeff Tweedy took a turn at being TV weatherman during Chicago’s WGN morning show. Tweedy isn’t considering switching careers, which as you can see from the clip below, is a good thing for both Wilco and weather fans.

SPIN reports “In the span of a minute, the Wilco frontman managed to ruin breakfast with a doomsday joke, riff on viewers’ literacy, and throw his palms skyward no fewer than ten times — all while the band’s Shot in the Arm played in the background… Dressed in a button-up jean shirt with one hand jammed into his front pocket, Tweedy was precisely the opposite of the bald, straight-laced forecaster who tasked him with reporting the week’s weather.”
