What in the World: Hump Day Video Edition with Weird Al, Jenny Lewis and Jon Stewart

Posted By on Wed, Jul 16, 2014 at 9:50 AM



"Weird Al" Yankovich
(remember him?) is back with a new album, and eight days worth of video releases to support it. Today's video, "Word Crimes," which takes on Robin Thicke's "Blurred Lines," is an obvious contender for Stuff Journalists Like. But it's also great because it allows us to listen to that catchy melody without feeling dirty. 


Jenny Lewis's new music video "Just One of the Guystakes on the patriarchy by channeling both Lisa Frank and drag culture and having pretty actresses take jabs at "biological clocks" and the shame (the shame!) of "ladies without babies." Ciara and Beyoncé tried something soooort of like this, but they were more focused on personal relationships and double standards.



Jon Stewart takes on Hobby Lobby (aka Pipe Cleaner Paradise) and asks where we draw the line for religious exemptions for businesses. How about Pantsless Mondays?
