Chris Bundas –
Well, “Weird Al” Yankovic has made good on his promise to release eight new videos in eight days.
Yesterday’s 7th video is a southern rock style tune that takes aim at all the shameless name droppers who think having some tertiary connection to a celebrity makes them cool.
You once threw up in an elevator next to Christian Slater? You know Paul Giamatti’s plumber? You have the same birthday as Kim Kardashian? Weird Al is begging you to stop with these lame claims to fame.
“Weird Al” Yankovic wraps up his eight-day string of wacky-fun video releases with “Mission Statement,” which premieres today on Speakeasy.
The song, from Weird Al’s new album“Mandatory Fun,” is a Crosby, Stills & Nash (think “Suite: Judy Blue Eyes” or “Carry On”) style. The song features lyrics of corporate jargon, like “operationalize our strategies” and “leverage our core competencies.”
