Weird Al Yankovic Wants You to Learn Your Grammar in “Word Crimes”

(PCM) The king of song parodies has struck again with his latest single “Word Crimes,” a parody of Robin Thicke’s 2013 summer anthem “Blurred Lines.”

Weird Al debuted “Word Crimes” yesterday as the second of eight videos that he is releasing over eight days in promotion for his newly released album Mandatory Fun, the musician’s fourteenth studio album.

“Word Crimes” parodies Robin Thicke’s “Blurred Lines” song and video, which you’re probably already very familiar with if you were alive and conscious during the summer of 2013.

“Blurred Lines” was inescapable; the song was on every radio station and music video channel, leading it to the top of the Billboard Hot 100 and on to become the longest running number one single of 2013 and the 2010′s, remaining on the top of the Hot 100 for 12 weeks.

“Blurred Lines” also drew a lot of negative attention for its misogynistic stance and “rapey” lyrics.

As of today, “Blurred Lines” has over 327 million views on YouTube.

Taking the incredibly fun and catchy beat and laying down lessons in grammar, Weird Al has succeeded in making the song his own and catching people’s attention: after just one day on YouTube, “Word Crimes” has already gained over 2 million views.

Weird Al revealed on The View on Tuesday that he was inspired to write the song due to the prevalence of text-slang and improper grammar and lack of education in today’s society.

Man Creates An Amazing Music Video While Stuck In An Empty Airport

Richard-Dunn1

(PCM) A lighting designer by the name of Richard Dunn, recently found himself stuck in McCarran International airport in Las Vegas, NV after his flight was cancelled. He did not have enough time to go to a hotel for the night and the airport was almost entirely empty, so he did what any of us would do right…..made an epic music video!

Dunn says he began googleing songs about being alone and when he came across a version of “All By Myself” covered by Celine Dion that is when the light bulb went off. After borrowing some luggage tape from an airport employee, he taped his iPhone to the back of tall pole and then attached it to a wheelchair.

Dunn even went as far as to tape his iPhone to his bag and send it up the escalator, so that he is able to capture an amazing zoom shot. Dunn says that no one at all seemed fazed by his music video endeavor, as it was mostly only cleaning crew members left in the airport at that time.

Remember, what happens in Vegas…..but this is too awesome not to share!
