It’s Day Two of Weird Al’s #8days8videos challenge to support his 14th (pause for praise) studio album, Mandatory Fun.. The new disc was released today and we are already loving Weird Al’s first track, his take on Pharrell’s Happy with Tacky (watch the video here).
The latest entry in the eight-day video challenge has arrived and frankly, we’re a little nervous to write about this song. Weird Al has taken us all to school with Word Crimes, a video that will undoubtedly be used in English classes for years to come, set to the tune of Robin Thicke’s Blurred Lines (a video that will likely never be shown in school).
Like the makers of Brain Quest and Where In The World Is Carmen San Diego, Weird Al is hoping to make learning fun. In reality, we’re just stressing out over whether or not we just used the correct ‘we’re’. We are. We are stressing. Yes, that seems correct.
Why are we so nervous, you ask? Because in four minutes, Weird Al has proven himself to the Chief of the Grammar Police. We fear no group more than the Grammar Police.
Check out Weird Al’s Word Crimes off his brand new album Mandatory Fun and excuse us while we spend the rest of the afternoon re-watching the video and double-checking all our work.
