"Weird Al" Yankovic’s 14th album "Mandatory Fun" is out tomorrow, July 15th and it’s supposed to be the last one he ever produces, at least in the conventional album format. That doesn’t mean that the man is retiring, instead he is expected to turn to digital self-distribution, putting out individual singles online more often, making it easier for him to keep up with the times and the stuff he spoofs.

The first video off “Mandatory Fun” is a parody of Pharrell Williams’ “Happy” and features Jack Black, Margaret Cho, Aisha Tyler, Eric Stonestreet and Kristen Schaal and it has just premiered on Nerdist. In a recent interview on NPR Al said that he is going to be releasing eight music videos in eight days for the album, making a big deal out of his last LP’s release week. Let’s see what the rest of the week has to offer then…
