I Love Weird Al's New Music and Videos, Do You?

I have been listening to Weird Al Yankovic since I was in high school (maybe 15 years or so).  I love his wacky, creative songs.  I always love his parodies but I love some of his originals also.  I was really excited when I heard he was going to release 8 videos in 8 days to go along with his new album, "Mandatory Fun".

The first video released was "Tacky", which is a parody of "Happy" by Pharrell.  I loved the celebrity cameos in "Tacky".  I was really amused by this video, and even more amused when I drove by 2 people who could star in the video the afternoon I watched it.

The second video released was "Word Crimes", which is a parody of "Blurred Lines" by Robin Thicke. I love this video so much because people who can't speak proper English drive me crazy!  That is one of my biggest pet peeves!  They should play this videos in schools and teach people in a fun way!

The third video released was "Foil", which is a parody of "Royals" by Lorde.  This song is a bit out there but I love the original song so I love the parody as well!  Weird Al really is a nut!

Have you been watching for his new videos each day?  Which has been your favorite so far?  I can't wait to see what comes out over the next 5 days!

I haven't heard about Weird Al Yankovic in years! Another friend of mine just posted Tacky on FB the other day and I thought it was hilarious!
