‘Weird Al’ Yankovic, ‘First World Problems’ [VIDEO PREMIERE]

‘Weird Al’ Yankovic is letting all of his first world frustrations out in ‘First World Problems,’ the latest in his eight videos in eight days campaign — and PopCrush has the exclusive premiere of the video!

Done in the musical style of the Pixies, Yankovic hilariously rants about everything from his electric toothbrush running out to missing out on breakfast because he slept in too late, all while angrily running around in a self-proclaimed “douchey blonde wig.”

“I got first world, first world problems,” he belts out on the chorus of the ‘Mandatory Fun’ tune, which also includes woeful lyrics like, “The thread count on these cotton sheets has got me itchin’ / My house is so big I can’t get Wi-Fi in my kitchen” and “I had to buy something I didn’t even need so I could qualify for free shipping on Amazon!”

While we’ve all been there, there’s no denying that Weird Al’s character in the video is a bit of a pretentious jerk, something he told us about with a laugh.

“I told [director Liam Lynch] that I didn’t want to be myself; I wasn’t Weird Al in this video — I was kind of like this douchey character,” he told PopCrush. “So we thought, ‘OK, we’ll find you a douchey blonde wig … [which was made of] real human hair … and I tried it on, and it fit, and we had fun with it!”

Check out the exclusive premiere of Weird Al’s ‘First World Problems’ video above, and be sure to pick up a copy of ‘Mandatory Fun’ on iTunes and Amazon (and try to get that free shipping, of course).
