Parodia – My Spanish Word of the Day 8/25/2015

My husband is a big fan of Weird Al Yankovic, so every now and then he shows me one of Weird Al’s latest music video parodies on YouTube.  He just showed me another one today.   I have decided that my Spanish word of the day is parodia (parody).  Weird Al Yankovic is a parodista (parodist), satirist, musician, and singer.  He is also an actor, author, music video director, and film producer.  He has made numerous albums and has won four Grammy Awards.  My favorite Weird Al music video parodias are Word CrimesWhite and Nerdy, and Party in the CIA.   Word Crimes is a parodia of Blurred Lines by Robin Thicke featuring T.I. and Pharrell Williams.  White and Nerdy is a parodia of Ridin by Chamillionare featuring Krayzie Bone. Party in the CIA is a parodia of Party in the USA by Miley Cyrus.

The best I can do about offering  you a video en español is a subtitled version of The Saga Begins which parodies American Pie by Don McLean.  All of the other videos in this post are in English.  Sometimes you just need a little silliness in your life.
