Video: Weird Al can fix your terrible grammar with a 'Blurred Lines' parody

Posted on

Weird Al

It’s day two of Weird Al Yankovic’s eight-day music-video comeback, and this time he’s coming for Robin Thicke.

“Word Crimes” is the second track off of Yankovic’s just-released album Mandatory Fun to get a video, and it’s an editor’s anthem. A parody of Robin Thicke’s “Blurred Lines,” the track could be useful for employees looking to passive-aggressively complain about their coworkers’ grammar in emails or English teachers looking for a hip way to get students to remember to always use ‘to whom’ and never ‘to who.’

Watch the video below—and for more Weird Al, read the stories behind 35 years worth of music right here.
