“Weird Al” Yankovic Debuts “Sports Song”: Watch

Weird Al” Yankovic shifts his focus from parodying pop songs to team anthems in “Sports Song.” In his latest video, he leads a marching band across a football field to rally the crowd. As to be expected from the proudly uncool funnyman, he does backpedal on some of his threats: “Okay, full disclosure: We’re not that great, but nevertheless, you suck!” Regardless, he nails it. He gets to exactly what sport songs are about, in a way that anyone can appreciate.

“I like to think that this is the kind of song that sports fans would love and people who hate sports would love,” Yankovic said to Radio.com.

“Sports Song” appears on Yankovic’s new album Mandatory Fun (out now) and continues his hot streak of parody videos, beginning with his take on Pharrell‘s “Happy.” He’ll release eight videos over eight days total to promote the album, when all is said and done – not as an homage to Beyonce‘s surprise album release, but as he did first for 2011′s Alpocalypse. (“[N]obody said to Beyonce, “Hey, you’re doing a Weird Al, aren’t ya?” he said. He’s got a point.)
