Weird Al has released a new album, Mandatory Fun, which has a very Commie vibe to the cover art, I’m torn between if I should like it, or hate it. Whatever, buy it.

The song above, Word Crimes, is a parody of Blurred Lines, I like it because of it’s kinetic typography style.
Tacky is I think my favorite, even though I absolutely hate the song it’s based on.
The other two he’s released are Foil, which, after I watched it again, I remember that I love it:
