Giving everyone a grammar lesson in the process

We're not sure whether parody musician "Weird Al" Yankovic dislikes Robin Thicke or bad grammar more. In the new music video for 'Word Crimes', Yankovic parodies Thicke's controversial single 'Blurred Lines'.

With hilarious lines including "I hate these word crimes, like I could care less, that means you do care, at least a little, don't be a moron", the track is in Yankovic's typical yet brilliant tongue in cheek style. We wouldn't have been suprised if there was an English test at the end of the video.

Watch the music video for 'Word Crimes' below

'Blurred Lines', the biggest selling single of 2013 in America, faced repeated criticism last year for its allegedly sexist nature. The song was banned at more than 20 universities in the UK. Thicke's latest album Paula has been a monumental flop, only selling 55 copies in Australia and failing to reach the top 100 in the UK Album Chart.

Yankovic's new album Mandatory Fun is out now. The album features parodies of other artists including Pharell Williams, Daft Punk, Iggy Azalea and Lorde.

Below: Blurred Lines - Robin Thicke's 10 most creepiest, sleaziest quotes
  • When asked about the whole VMA fiasco: "People ask me if I twerk, and I'm like, 'listen, I'm the twerkee. I don't twerk, I'm just twerked upon." Thats pretty modest of you Thicke.

  • There's more than one negative subject in 'Blurred Lines': "We tried to do everything that was taboo. Bestiality, drug injections, and everything that is completely derogatory towards women. Because all three of us are happily married with children, we were like, 'we're the perfect guys to make fun of this'."

  • He also has a large 'ego': "Compared to my son, I'm packing."

  • His dad had a love of women as well: "My dad was single my whole pubescent period. He had Ms. Alabama, Ms Dominican Republic 2013 every week. I was like, 'Dang, Pops!'"

  • And what does Patton do in return? Well with music having to be in their bedroom: "Sometimes she'll even play groupie for me."

  • "In 'Give It 2 U,' it's more a comment of swagger," says Thicke. "Like, I'm big-dick swingin'. We joke around. If someone's got a great outfit on, it's like, 'Oh, you're big-dick swingin tonight.'" Right, makes total sense.

  • He's also the ultimate cheesy romancer: "I like to take her out to a fancy, six-course meal that lasts three hours and stare into her eyes."

  • He's pretty open about his bedroom antics with his wife Paula Patton: "We're overspiced" he says, "I like to try to get her into double-digit orgasms as much as possible."
