“Weird Al” Yankovic – Word Crimes

A Fun Friday Video from Weird Al — (remember him?)

Grammarians, rejoice!

Weird Al’s latest video, “Word Crimes,” offers viewers a humorous schooling in the correct usage of often misused words, and it’s set to the unmistakable tune of Robin Thicke’s much-malignedBlurred Lines.”

If you’re worried Weird Al is only jumping on the grammar bandwagon because it’s a hip, easy way to connect with the youth (who are clearly into this sort of thing), fear not. The eccentric artist has been a tireless advocate for years now, as this 2010-era GIF illustrating the difference between “less” and “fewer” proves.

 

The video is part of Weird Al’s latest album, “Mandatory Fun,” set to hit stores Tuesday, July 15.
