We are now at the half way point of Weird Al’s music video carpet bombing for his new album ‘Mandatory Fun.’ Weird Al is dropping eight videos in a row off his new album. It’s actually a really brilliant way to market on the internet. Weird Al is using the internet’s short attention span as an advantage instead of a disadvantage. He knows that things on the internet may only be hot for 24 hours, so he’s giving them eight days of content. This means he might actually manage to stay in front of people for multiple days on the ADD internet. It is Friday and here we are posting his latest video, touche Weird Al.
In this video Weird Al takes on the role of a “Handy” man and raps out a parody of Iggy Azalea’s “Fancy.”
The concept was fine, it was classic goofy Weird Al. Maybe it just wasn’t a full song joke, OH NO THE INTERNET HAS MADE MY ATTENTION SPAN 30 SECONDS! I’m now part of the problem.
I wonder if I’m suffering from Weird Al overkill? Have we gotten so much Weird Al in the last few days that we can’t appreciate what we have anymore? Is Weird Al becoming us getting mad when a text takes two tries to go through?
When I’m not impressed with Weird Al something is terribly, terribly wrong. I don’t know how I feel about this internet, I think you’ve betrayed me.
