    New Weird Al Yankovic Video!!!

    I know there are more than a few Weird Al fans here. From his forthcoming album "Mandatory Fun", a parody of Pharrell Williams' "Happy"

    I can't watch it - wouldn't work. So want to see this.

    Also saw somewhere else that he wants to do Iggy Azalea and asked her permission. Now that I want to see.

    Apparently he is doing 8 videos in 8 days - releasing one every day for the next week - so you may yet get your wish.....

    I was just going to post that I loved that he carved Prince out of using numbers for letters!

    The latest batch of songs would probably be better if I had any idea what they were parodying. I mean, I'd heard Tacky/Happy- but the Word Crimes and Foils songs I don't know. But I truly love weird al. There are many songs I can't listen to anymore without hearing his parody.

    Yep. Once upon a time I knew every single song he was spoofing. Now I have to BoobTube the source material.

    Guess I'll call up "Like A Surgeon" now....

    Don't forget to yell "Hey! You kids! Get off my lawn!!" while you're doing that

    "Word Crimes" is all kinds of awesome. He gets 10/10 for lampooning one of my least favourite songs ever AND getting all the items on my grammar peeve hit list! (Plus bonus points for use of the term "cunning linguist." )
