Daily Weekly Favoriting: Weird Al’s #8videos8days Project
I caught the newest Weird Al video, “Tacky”, over on Nerdist.com and it seriously made my afternoon. The lyrics are great, a quality parody of Pharrell was absolutely necessary, and the cast of characters is pretty much a who’s who of my fave nerdy-funny people.
Weird Al's new album, Mandatory Fun, drops tomorrow, but he’s got 8 videos lined up for 8 days of awesome releases. (Hence the #8videos8days… it just makes sense somehow.)
In looking around the web at what others had to say, I think Jesse David Fox from NY Mag’s Vulture got it spot on when he wrote “It’s easy to forget how great Weird Al is, but then every few years he comes back with a new batch of parodies, and you’re like, Oh, yeah, this is what I’ve been missing.”
And indeed, this is exactly what my Monday afternoon was missing.
Can’t wait to see the rest of the videos coming up this week!
