Weird Al Yankovic has premiered a string of videos to wrap up his eight-video series promoting the new album "Mandatory Fun."
Along the way, Uncle Al has tackled "The Man," annoying Average Joe name-droppers, first-world problems and even ESPN.
The latest video is a Crosby, Stills & Nash-inspired tune titled "Mission Statement," taking on today's mega-corporation in a doodle-driven video. Check it out below.
Up next are the name-droppers and "Lame Fame to Claim." Quite a catchy tune, name-checking the likes of Steven Seagal, Motley Crue and much more.
Then we get some Pixies vibe in "First World Problems." The title of the track makes it very obvious what the track's about, and it's another shoo-in for a hit single.
Finally, an original tune from Yankovic - "Sports Song," featuring Al leading the nerdy marching band for an awesome ESPN parody.
When it comes to "Mandatory Fun," Billboard reports that the album is predicted to sell very well and might even reach the No. 1 spot on the US Billboard 200 chart, reeling in a first chart-topper for Yankovic.
