“Weird Al” has gone full throttle with the release of his latest — and possibly final — album “Mandatory Fun.” He has released four of eight videos he plans to show in conjunction with the album, including “Blurred Lines” parody “Word Crimes,” a riff on Lorde’s “Royals” titled “Foils,” a humorous take on Azalea Bank’s “Fancy” and his homage to Pharrell’s hit “Happy.”
