“Weird Al” Yankovic – “Sports Song” Video
On the back of his new album Mandatory Fun, “Weird Al” Yankovic recently promised eight videos in eight days, and thus far, he’s actually overdelivered. Earlier this week, we saw his videos for “Tacky,” “Foil,” and “Handy,” as well as his lyric video for “Word Crimes.” Last night, he was on Conan, and his performance was honestly great enough that it should qualify as his video for the day. But that’s not good enough for him! So now he’s also made a video for “Sports Song,” which isn’t a parody of anything but which is instead Yankovic’s take on the entire idea of the sporting fight song. In the video, we see Yankovic leading a marching band across a football field and singing about all the ways in which his team will beat your team, with a few qualifying asides thrown in there. As with everything this guy does, it’s both so dumb and so brilliant. Watch it below.
