Weird AlYankovic is back and he is full of new parodies. Continuing the art of being a musician-parodist, Yankovic has took on some of the most recent popular songs. He does this by skillfully criticizing today’s pop culture society, without personally attacking someone. Through his light humor we are able to laugh through popular songs that have made us go mad due to nonstop radio play. There will be a new music video every day of this week for the songs off of his album “Mandatory Fun.”
