From Buzz Word-Mocking Songs to Comedian Mockumentaries

 - Jul 23, 2014
Now that the string of music video releases for Mandatory Fun have ended, it is a worthwhile time to look back and enjoy other Weird Al parodies. The parody master has been in the satire industry for a number of years making fun of popular culture and celebrities. In addition to his eight recent music videos, Weird Al parodies are generally in the form of a lyrical discussion or song.

With recent releases such as Sports Song and Mission Statement Al Yankovic laughs at general elements within society like athletic anthems and workplace language. Others make fun of a particular song, as seen in weird foil parodies, handy rap parodies, good grammar parodies and tacky celebrity parodies which recreate songs by Lorde, Iggy Azalea, Robin Thicke and Pharell, respectively.
