In a recent interview with Jordan Klepper of The Daily Show, Jack White was asked when he realized that he’d “made it.” White’s response? He hadn’t yet.

“When I have coffee with ‘Weird Al’ Yankovic one day,” said White, “that’s when I’ll know. People say ‘I know I’ve made it when “Weird Al” covers your song.’ That’s not true—you have to have coffee with him.”

Dreams do come true.
