‘Weird Al’ Is a ‘Handy’-man in Parody Video of Iggy Azalea’s ‘Fancy’

“Weird Al” Yankovic’s #8videos8days campaign is really hitting its stride. The promotional campaign for his new album, Mandatory Fun, has already unveiled parodies of Pharrel’s “Happy” (“Tacky”), Robin Thicke’s “Blurred Lines” (“Word Crimes”), and Lorde’s “Royals (“Foil”). Now we round the halfway mark with “Handy,” a skillful twist on Iggy Azaela’s “Fancy.” Therein, Al’s an artfully adept Tim Taylor-type, expertly rerouting the Aussie rapper’s flow and lyrical lines for his own personal plumbing pleasure: “I’m so handy, you already know,” he sings on the chorus. “I’ll fix your plumbing when your toilets overflow. I’m so handy, I’ll bring you up to code. When your dishwasher’s about to ‘xplode.”
