Weird Al Yankovic’s #WeekOfWeird continues with “Word Crimes”
Al Yankovic’s #WeekOfWeird continues with the second video from his new album Mandatory Fun. “Word Crimes” parodies Robin Thicke’s inescapable song “Blurred Lines,” and it involves giving the Internet a solid lesson in proper spelling and grammar usage. Meanwhile, hashtagged phrases and other animations by Jarrett Heather pop up, float around, and dance upon the screen. As usual, Weird Al’s observations are pretty hilarious, and this one doubles as a video that might do a bit of good if shared with friends who could stand to brush up on some of their basic writing skills.
Of course, Weird Al is just getting started – we have a whole six more new videos still to come during the rest of the week, so stay tuned to Sensible Reason!
