“Weird Al” Yankovic’s new “Word Crimes” video is an editor’s dream

Grammarians near and far will love “Weird Al” Yankovic’s new video for “Word Crimes,” a track that transforms Robin Thicke’s “Blurred Lines” into a copyeditor’s dream. Yankovic takes a solid stand against modern Internet English, using the lyric-enhanced clip—the second video of eight he’ll release over the next eight days—to vent his personal pet peeves. It’s not packed with celebrity cameos like yesterday’s “Tacky,” but that’s probably a good thing, since it removes any distractions from the lesson.

Yankovic’s Mandatory Fun is out now.
