"Weird Al" Yankovic's latest video, out in support of his brand-new album, "Mandatory Fun," is for "Sports Song," according to a leak on Twitter.

Yankovic is releasing eight new music videos to accompany what may be his final album -- in an over 30-year career of parodying popular music. The first video, "Tacky," was a parody of Pharrell Williams' "Happy" and the second one was a didactic yet hilarious take on Robin Thicke's "Blurred Lines." Yankovic's "Word Crimes" is about, well, grammar.

This video is for "Sports Song," a tune that effectively pokes fun at sports fans everywhere. It may be late for the World Cup fever, but it is just in time for college football.

Watch the video here.

Update: According to lawyer/journalist Mike Sacks, who had tweeted the link to the "Sports Song" video this morning, it might not be today's intended video.
