“Weird Al” Yankovic Bemoans “First World Problems” In Pixies Spoof: Watch

Weird Al” Yankovic bemoans “First World Problems” in his latest spoof, also the latest in his eight-videos-in-eight-days streak. In the style of alt-rock icons The Pixies, particularly frontman Frank Black‘s talk-singing vocal inflections, the pop parodist complains over a friend calling instead of texting. He fumes over having WiFi everywhere in his house except for his kitchen and receiving a vanilla latte without foam art. He also wears a wispy blond wig supplied by director Liam Lynch (Tenacious D‘s film Tenacious D in The Pick of Destiny, Yankovic’s Doors spoof “Craigslist”) — a pretty great attempt to “douchey,” as he tells PopCrush.

“First World Problems” appears on Mandatory Fun, Yankovic’s latest (and possibly last) album. To prepare, he listened to the Pixies’ entire catalog on repeat “until it just seeps into my brain,” as he said to Newsweek. Prior to that, he even performed Doolittle track “I Bleed” with the band in Los Angeles at a charity concert.

Watch Yankovic’s “First World Problems” video at PopCrush, then watch footage of him performing with the Pixies below.
