Your day won’t be complete without hearing Weird Al read a story about Gutbusters. Yes, Gutbusters—which as you might know from Dungeons & Dragons lore, are lead by Pwent, a dwarf hero.
Al Yankovic, as he’s called when not performing songs like “Amish Paradise,” is one of several celebrities whom Audible has brought together to read passages from R.A. Salvatore’s The Legend of Drizzt: The Collected Stories—a series of 12 tales set in the world of Dungeons & Dragons—for the 40th anniversary of the fantasy game. Audible’s project also includes voice work from Sean Astin, Michael Chiklis, Wil Wheaton, Ice-T, Tom Felton, David Duchovny, Greg Grunberg, Felicia Day, Melissa Rauch, Danny Pudi, and Dan Harmon.
Audible is releasing the the project today; listeners will have free access to it for 40 days. Check out the preview video below, which includes Ice-T admitting that he’s intimidated by reading Dungeons & Dragons.
