Check Out Weird Al’s Incredible Attention to Detail in This Comparison Video

As if you needed any further proof that Weird Al is the best, here's a new video that compares eight of his parody videos side-by-side with the original, which clearly shows that Yankovic's just as good at skewering artists' music videos as he is good at skewering their songs.

Weird Al Reminds You That Your Team Sucks in "Sports Song"

It's a new day, which means there's a new Weird Al Mandatory Fun music video for your enjoyment. After "Tacky," "Word Crimes," "Foil," and yesterday's "Handy," today Yankovic dropped the video for the above original ditty "Sports Song" via Funny or Die, which is a pretty good summation of sports fans for those of us who find the whole thing pointless.

Weird Al's Week of Awesomeness Continues with Robin Thicke Parody "Word Crimes"

After yesterday's "Tacky," Weird Al just released his second music video today — a parody of "Blurred Lines" called "Word Crimes" that's a great tribute to grammar nerds everywhere despite his questionably flexible take on the Oxford comma. Today is also the official release date for Mandatory Fun, so you can head over to Weird Al's website to buy the album and start memorizing lyrics like it's fifth grade all over again.

Watch an Animated Music Video for Tim & Eric's "Jambalaya"

Here's an animated music video for the song "Jambalaya" by Tim Heidecker and Eric Wareheim, which also doubles as a recipe for jambalaya. Tim & Eric recorded the song in character as the '70s "swamp rock" band "Pusswhip Banggang," which they introduced years ago on Tim & Eric Awesome Show, Great Job!

Weird Al's Iggy Azalea Parody "Handy" Is Quite Ridiculous

We're halfway through Weird Al's exciting week of music video releases for his album Mandatory Fun — watch "Tacky," "Word Crimes," and "Foil" if you haven't yet — and today he dropped the video for his Iggy Azalea parody "Handy," which includes a few scenes of Eddie Pepitone getting attacked by household appliances. Probably the coolest thing about the Mandatory Fun videos is how Yankovic has been spreading the love by releasing them on different platforms — Nerdist, VEVO, CollegeHumor, and now Yahoo Screen — because he is just the best.

Watch a Music Video Hannibal Buress Made with Open Mike Eagle

Here's a music video for the song "Doug Stamper" from comedian Open Mike Eagle that heavily features comedian Hannibal Buress. Buress bookends the video, opening it up co-hosting "The Advice Show" with Eagle in a comedy segment that kicks things off and closing it out by rapping a verse of the song. For those who have heard Buress perform "Gibberish Rap," his hip hop prowess comes as no surprise.
