Weird Al Yankovic Teaches Grammar in 'Word Crimes' Video


The parodist tells people to use proper English in the music video that finds him spoofing Robin Thicke's 'Blurred Lines'.

Just a day after debuting "Tacky" which finds him recreating Pharrell Williams' "Happy", Weird Al Yankovic returns with a new video for his "Word Crimes". Released on Tuesday, July 15, the same day his "Mandatory Fun" album came out, the new clip is a parody of Robin Thicke's smashing hit single "Blurred Lines".

Marking the second of eight videos Weird Al will release to celebrate the arrival of his latest LP, "Word Crimes" sees the singer/songwriter/parodist complaining about modern grammar. He tells people that they may need to "go back to pre-school" and learn again the right way to use few/less, whom/who and it's/its among others before declaring, "I hate these word crimes."

" 'Word Crimes' is about a year old. There were already about 10,000 parodies of ["Blurred Lines"] and they were all rapey," he said of his song during a new interview on "The View". "And I thought nobody had done a song about grammar."

In addition to Weird Al's parodies of Pharrell and Thicke's hit singles, "Madatory Fun" includes the singer's versions of Lorde's "Royals" and Iggy Azalea's "Fancy".
