“Weird Al” Yankovic flips Robin Thicke’s “Blurred Lines” into the charming grammar lesson “Word Crimes” – goddamit Al, you got us. Via Consequence of Sound:
On “Word Crimes”, the “Weird” one parodies Thicke’s (in)famous hit “Blurred Lines”. Gone is the sexist skew and cheesiness of the original — instead, Al flips the song into a lesson about grammar. Yes, seriously, he calls people out for their gross misuse of English, singing: “You learn the definition / of nouns and prepositions / Literacy’s your mission / And that’s why I think it’s a good time / To learn some grammar / Did I stammer? / Work on that grammar.”
Check it out on his website and stay tuned as the eight days of Al continues all through this week.
