You are a lost cause 🤣🤣🤣
Never mind I give up🤣🤣🤣
Al did done good😅
I'm only joking. This was great.
The only thing wrong with this song is their rejection of the Oxford comma.
I am just gonna start sending this to ppl who annoy me xD
i remember my teacher used this in 3rd grade to teach about grammar, its entertaining but at the same time secretly teaching you
In the U.K. there was a society to prevent the abuse of the apostrophe, it hung in there for several years but wound itself up up because “the war was hopelessly lost”.
Still an educational tool this day 🥰
Animation + music = a happy me
This song is genius in every way EXCEPT for the lines "2 lern some grammer / now did I stammer? / work on that grammar". Unless I misunderstand, he rhymes "grammer" with "grammar", which sounds exactly the same. Dunno, irks me a bit, because the rest is so absolutely brilliant.
I didn't learn a thing but man this is a jam
Al is a very intelligent man. Just look at the way he’s able to spin others work and make their songs even better. I don’t ever recall him using foul language to promote any of his work. Keep it up Al and hope to hear you for many years to come.
I guess I could put all the references together since I'm bored.

Learnt more in this song than i ever will in my lifetime
attorney and lawyers theme song
I use this to teach my class
One of the best written songs of all time.
Funny story sometimes, idiots who should not contribute to the gen pool. Create genius progeny. because genetics are WEIRD,
Br0 1 th1nk th1s s0ng was literally the b3st
I never realized how bad at English I was until I heard this song.
"go back to preschool, get out of the gene pool" 🤣
Love the cover. Webster's Dictionary. In case Google meanings are BS
these word crimes… like… " anyone got an accordion "
Can anyone else find the word crime in this video?
I LOVE THIS
0:05 nice accordion reference
"You should only write in emoji" is my new favorite insult
Well, it's the shortening of a word or group of words by omission of a sound or letter.
The World Book Encyclopedia (1994 Edition) Agrees.
I commit word crimes because people need to stop being so anal about a language that has too many illogical rules.
@millennials @geny @genz
Just realised a subtle Alanis Morissette reference at 2:41.
1:20 as a possessive it's a contraction
ummmm…no that's wrong
the baby was holding ITS toy
IT'S time to go
Can't believe Al predicted the Safdie Brothers' debut at 0:50
The fact that there is good animation in this video wants me to just LITERALLY like this video
I started saying "I could not possibly care less" which seems to get the idea across
Also my phone loves to autocorrect its to it's and were to we're.
0:52 WHAT HAVE YOU DONE TO DOGE!?
I think every video advertising board in the UK should show this, especially when school kicks out. It should also be the advert in Candy Crush when some Chav wants more coinage.
2:42. Someone get Atlanis some ointment for that burn.
This is better than the real
I wanna like this a thousand times
It's true that there is no x in espresso. However, there is also no h in issue, yet we Americans pronounce it as "ish-u", not "iss-u" like the British.
Also I like the way the British keep the punctuation out of quotation marks.
"Al wierd" Yankovic has a big dictionary.
There are so many Weird Al songs that I enjoy more than the originals. This is one of them!
Until today I was vaguely aware someone went by the name of Weird Al Yankovic, but I just started to discover his work.
Instantly became a fan.
Imagine: right now, I'm going through his YouTube channel and EVERY song is new to me.
I'm having such a great day! <3
I listened to this like 6 years ago in Germany! 😀
Blurred Lines LMFAO
Nice vocabulary LMAO
use the right pronoun? that's very 2022 of you.
He should do Britney Spears Dog Sick
