In his First World Problems video, Weird Al Yankovic lyrically discusses the viral hashtag documenting non-problems privileged people have. From forgetting the gardener's name to missing the breakfast menu, the parody master expertly makes fun of the grievances some people have in the developed world.

This music video portrays Weird Al as a blonde wigged jerk as directed by Liam Lynch. As he goes about his day he runs into several funny 'problems' people can experience in daily life. The song's tune is a mix between Pixie songs 'Debaser' and 'No. 13 Baby.'

The First World Problems video is part of the promotional effort for the Weird Al Mandatory Fun album where the pop culture satirist posted a new music video everyday for eight days. Stats for Privileged Problem Parodies Trending: Older & Chilly
