    Weird Al Takes On Business Babble In ‘Mission Statement’

    Alas, the glorious week of Weird Al Yankovic is at an end. Our favourite musical parodist has marked the end of his superb run of eight music videos released over eight days with Mission Statement, a take on Crosby, Still & Nash that harmonises on impenetrable business babble. “We must all efficiently operationalize our stratgies,”

    Weird Al Wants You To Shut Up About Your ‘Lame Claim To Fame’

    Weird Al Yankovic‘s eight-day music video marathon has seen our beloved purveyor of parody issue some sly, tongue-in-cheek criticisms of 21st Century life. In his latest, Lame Claim To Fame, Al takes on pseudo-name-droppers and people who boast about irrelevant online achievements. Al’s eye-popping stop-motion animation video is set to a country-rock jam filled to

    Watch Tyler, The Creator And Mac DeMarco Get Down With Your Grandma

    We’re not sure if Tyler, The Creator‘s latest video marvel is part of his plan to become the next Quentin Tarantino, but we’re guessing it’s not. In fact, we suspect the only motivation behind his and Canadian rocker Mac DeMarco‘s apparent ode to hot grannies is simply to gross everyone out. In that sense, Tyler

    Weird Al Yankovic Channels The Pixies To Bemoan ‘First World Problems’

    Weird Al Yankovic is six videos into his eight-day music video marathon and still going strong, now channeling alternative rock gods the Pixies to complain about First World Problems.

    Watch Weird Al Yankovic’s ‘Blurred Lines’ Spoof, ‘Word Crimes’

    In the lead-up to his new album, Mandatory Fun, Weird Al Yankovic has released a song that many on the internet wish we’d written ourselves. Titled Word Crimes, the track is a parody of Robin Thicke‘s hit Blurred Lines and takes to task the improper spelling and grammar recidivists of society. Don’t know (or care)
