We’d like to justify this post by reminding everyone that our favorite–hell, the world’s favorite–novelty musician “Weird Al” Yankovic promoted today’s release of his latest album, Mandatory Fun, with the latest promotional necessity: a Reddit AMA.
(Things we learned: he likes Epic Rap Battles of History and wanted to parody “Let It Go” with the Star Trek-themed “Make It So” but had to cancel after learning that some enterprising YouTuber had beaten him to the punch.)
Frankly, though, we just wanted to share his latest video for “Word Crimes”, especially after posting on grammatical rules from the journalists at Poynter, the actor formerly known as Frasier and–most impressively–the CIA.
Not only was Al’s song more entertaining and less creepy than the original, but something tells us that his future Twitter Q&A will be more successful (if not more satisfying in a schadenfreude way) than Robin Thicke’s as well.
