Weird Al Yankovic has another great parody on his hands and this time it is to Robin Thicke’s Blurred Lines and you might just learn something while watching the video. The spoof of the popular song is called Word Crimes and the Blurred Lines lyrics are replaced by the rules of composition.
This is Weird Al’s second of eight new music videos being released this week. The first was a take of Pharrell’s “Happy” which Weird All calls Tacky and features Eric Stonestreet, Jack Black and others acting Tacky.
In the spoof Word Crimes Yankovic sings in the opening lines, "If you can't write, in the proper way / If you don't know, how to conjugate / Maybe you flunked that class, and maybe now you find. / That people mock you online."
There are countless parodies of Thicke’s Blurred Line songs that can be found on YouTube. Word Crimes is a parody of the proper use of grammar.
This is Weird Al’s fourteenth studio album that is title Mandatory Fun and was released Tuesday, July 15. He will continue to release one new video parody daily through next Monday, July 21.
You can watch Weird Al Yankovic’s parodies on his YouTube channel including the new releases and some of the old favorites or watch all of the new videos for his new album on his website as they are released to the public. Download the album Mandatory Fun on Amazon or iTunes.
