The Honorable Mr. Yankovic popped up in a brand new advert for the downtrodden gadget retailer with only a contact of Wonka madness earlier this week, main some reporter from Parks and Recreation by means of a veritable toyland of drones and, erm, batteries with a (fairly terrible) music wafting via the air.
