As promised, Weird Al Yankovic has released his second music video in two days.

Yesterday, it was a parody of Pharrell’s “Happy,” with the help of some famous faces. Today, it’s Pharrell’s other big hit in the past 12 months: “Blurred Lines" with Robin Thicke.

Except, there’s nothing controversial about Weird Al’s version, simply titled “Word Crimes.” Instead of rapey suggestive lyrics, Weird Al tackles bad grammar.

 

In the age of hashtags and retweets, it’s definitely a good time to learn some grammar. Let Weird Al teach you the ways.

Watch “Word Crimes,” above. Video number three of eight drops tomorrow.

Weird Al’s new album Mandatory Fun, which includes parodies of songs by Iggy Azalea, Lorde, Imagine Dragons and others, is available now.
