Weird Al is releasing a new video every day. Today's is a parody of 'Blurred Lines,' because that song was asking for it.
I presume the semi-colon is Robin Thicke?
"Weird Al" Yankovic is a genius, which is probably why his parody of "Blurred Lines" (like virtually all of his parodies) stays away from the controversy around Robin Thicke's tune (and by "controversy," I mean even Pharrell agreed his lyrics were creepy) and turns it to a different kind of insidious, culture-wide problem: the abuse of grammar by pretty much everyone on the Internet. As much as I associate Weird Al with the 90s, this video is one of the best and least-clueless depictions of the Internet I've seen in something professionally made. Weird Al is awesome. If you don't agree, I don't really know what you're doing in this article, anyway.
Pretty much everyone is incredibly pumped for the Week of Weird Al, which started yesterday with his star-studded "Happy" spoof, "Tacky," and will continue with new videos and songs every day until 7/21. All of these songs, of course, are on his new album "Mandatory Fun," available for purchase anywhere money can be turned into music online. We will make sure to bring these to your attention as they hit the Web.
