Following his crazy stunt of releasing eight music videos in eight days, Weird Al's latest musical effort, Mandatory Fun, has reached number one on the Billboard Charts. Last week alone, he sold 104,700 CD's to music lovers. It took him 30 years of parodying pop hits as well as unique singles to reach this goal. The news came via Twitter from Yankovic himself. He continued by tweeting "If you’d told me 30 years ago this would happen, I never would’ve believed it. If you’d told me 2 WEEKS ago, I never would’ve believed it." as well as "I’m so pleased everybody is enjoying the album, and I’m enormously grateful for everyone’s support. Thank you, thank you, THANK YOU."
Wearing a MacGyver-esque wig, Weird Al brings today's #8songs8days music video a fresh new coat of paint. Making fun of Iggy Azalea's "Fancy" was an obvious choice for his record. Al demonstrates his worth by showing how "Handy" he really can be.
Day 2 of Weird Al's #8videos8days brings a video I've been wanting to see for years. Don't you hate it when people use bad grammar on the internet? I meant, we have full keyboards right in front of us! Just type out the whole word! Lazy bums.
Anyway, there's the music video for the Robin Thicke #BlurredLines-esque #WordCrimes. It's a crime how funny this is.
