‘Weird Al’ Yankovic Takes on Plumbing and Modern Pop Music in New ‘Handy’ Video

“Weird Al” Yankovic continues his media blitz this week with another video from his new album, ‘Mandatory Fun.’ Monday found him taking on Pharrell Williams’ ‘Happy’ with ‘Tacky.’ Tuesday brought us ‘Word Crimes,’ a spin on Robin Thicke‘s ‘Blurred Lines.’ And yesterday he turned Lorde‘s hit ‘Royals’ into ‘Foil.’

Today, Yankovic takes his knife to Iggy Azalea‘s No. 1 hit ‘Fancy.’

The world’s greatest musical parodist takes the Australian pop star’s cheddar-drenched self-boasting song and hands the bragging rights over to a handyman. “I’m so handy, you already know / I’ll fix your plumbing when your toilets overflow” says a whole lot more than “in the fast lane from L.A. to Tokyo” does.

As usual, Yankovic’s skills are fine-tuned, and he earns extra points for his dance moves in the above video. Thirty years on, and his natural-born silliness hasn’t waned one notch. Just for fun, compare the two videos and you’ll see Yankovic didn’t have to travel too far down the road of ridiculousness: ‘Fancy’ and its video pretty much come off like parodies themselves.

Yankovic is promoting ‘Mandatory Fun,’ which is available now at Amazon or iTunes, with a new video for eight straight days. We’re halfway there!

He also took some time to chat with us earlier this week to talk about his new album. Find out what he said in our exclusive interview:
