Well, I will admit that I didn’t see this one coming. Weird Al today released the final video in his #8videos8days promotion, and it’s an animated music video for the song “Mission Statement”.
The song is done in the style of Crosby, Stills and Nash, and features rich harmonies basically singing a company’s mission statement, and all the corporate jargon that goes with it. On the album, this one is interesting to me because while I can definitely get into the music of it, and all of Al’s harmonies blended together, I usually just end up tuning out the words because they are not particularly funny. Maybe that’s the point.
Regardless of that, check out the final video (for now?) from the new album Mandatory Fun, and in case you missed any of the other seven, click here for our ongoing coverage of Weird Al’s #8videos8days…
This one doesn’t want to embed again so head over to Speakeasy for the debut of “Mission Statement”
