“Weird Al” Yankovic, America’s favorite musical parodist, has a new album out. It’s titled Mandatory Fun and it features such songs as “Tacky,” which is a parody of Pharrell Williams’s “Happy,” and “Word Crimes,” a send-up of both Robin Thicke’s “Blurred Lines” and poor grammar.

But, if you’re a fan of “Weird Al,” you don’t only like the songs. You like the videos, too. So, in honor of all that, here are the top ten “Weird Al” music videos.

Can't argue with the list very much. Liked the vid for "Living with a Hernia." Yankovic had some surprisingly deft moves in that one.

Pretty much *any* Al video is an act of genius, although I have a special fondness for "I Lost On Jeopardy".

The Tom Snyder appearance where he did Another One Rides the Bus for the first time on TV should be on the list. Its classic Al.

Fat is indeed Bad.

What I find "weird" is that he looks much older in "Fat" which was released in 1988 than he does in "The Saga Begins" which was released in 1999.

Still get a huge laugh at Prince's lawyers sending him a legal notice not to make eye contact with Prince at the AMAs.

Bless you for posting this. My wife sent me a link to Word Crimes a couple days ago and it was AWESOME!

I was 12 when Weird Al started to really be a big deal. My friends and I thought he was a comedic genius, and of course he is.

Here's the conservative answer to Common Core:

"Word Crimes" should be mandatory viewing starting in 5th grade.

Being able to explain the WHY of everything he covers in the video should be required before a high school diploma is granted.

Then we might have fewer people "graduating high school" and maybe a few more who graduate FROM high school.
