(PIX11) — “Weird Al” Yankovic released his newest parody Tuesday, this time targeting Robin Thicke and his “Blurred Lines.”

“Word Crimes” cleverly  covers the common grammatical mistakes that drive the Yankovic crazy — the words neatly replacing Thicke’s overtly sexual lyrics.

On Monday, Yankovic released the immediately-viral parody of Pharrell’s “Happy.”  Instead of an upbeat song about having a positive mindset, “Tacky” is all tasteless fashions and behavior.

He enlisted the help of stars Aisha Tyler, Kristen Schaal, and Jack Black in the video, which he shot in one take.

Weird Al has been making headlines since the 80s with his genius parodies of hit songs.

He made a name for himself parodying songs like “I love Rock ‘n’ Roll,” “Beat it,” “Smells like Teen Spirit,” and “Born this Way.”

This week Yankovic will releasing eight parodies in eight days to promote his new album, “Mandatory Fun.”
