Weird Al continues his weeklong album release extravaganza with "Handy," the fourth of eight videos to come out this week. The track is the first song on his brand new LP, Mandatory Fun.
At first glance, "Handy" is one of the weaker songs on the album, but the genius of Al Yankovic shines through. Rather than create direct satire of Iggy Azalea and Charli XCX's pervasive "Fancy," Weird Al made the song something dads can sing along to. Now, when high school girls in Everytown, USA sing about how fancy they are, their fathers can sing right along with them, thereby making "Fancy" totes uncool and OMG so embarrassing. God bess you, Weird Al.
The video for "Handy" is a deliciously cheesy commercial for Al's contracting service, featuring dancing construction workers, oddball effects, and a tender moment with some socket wrenches. Comedian Eddie Pepitone even gets blown off a toilet. Watch the clip above.
