Weird Al’s Grammatically Correct ‘Word Crimes’ Parodies ‘Blurred Lines’

Weird Al 'Word Crimes'

In anticipation of his new album, Mandatory Fun, “Weird Al” Yankovic has released his latest parody, poking fun at Robin Thicke’s “Blurred Lines.” Grammar geeks and word lovers are united in their glee that the spoof tackles the rapid decline of modern grammar.

Titled “Word Crimes,” Yankovic dishes up not-so-subtle pokes at everyday grammar gaffes, including poor word usage, abominable spelling, and misuse of everyday phrases. ("I hate these word crimes / Like 'I could care less' / That means you do care").

Yankovic has managed to turn the song that everybody loves to hate into a veritable crash course in grammar. It’s clever, informative, and the lyric video is fun. Check it out:
