"Weird Al" Yankovic - Mission Statement

"Weird Al" Yankovic - Mission Statement

Lilithia says...

Just for the record, I did not intentionally post a dead or unpublished video.

@Sagemind @newtboy @lucky760
As you can see, it has already been published and there is an option to get the embed code of the video. There is no way of knowing that the embedded video will turn out like this before you embed it somewhere. This has also been the case with the "First World Problems" video, for which I was able to find a viable embed code several hours after I first posted it here and although people tried to watch it before that, nobody complained about it, so I thought it was okay and I decided not to kill it.

I did not post an unpublished video to beat anyone to it. I hoped to be able to find a better way to embed this video, as I managed to do with the other one.
If I really cared that much about beating people to posting a video, I'd be very disappointed all the time, because in 9 out of 10 cases I try to post a video, it has already been sifted.

Sorry, I'm making an executive decision and saying this is patently unacceptable.

You can't intentionally submit a dead video, despite that it will come out at some future point, and also cast votes on a non-existent video. Plus, it's spamming the front page with non-content.

*Discard for now, but please feel free to promote once it's actually working.

I wrote that I tested the video on 4 computers. Firstly, I never stated that they were all my own (which they aren't, but I understand that this can still be seen as a privilege). Secondly, it worked perfectly on all of the computers, so there is no problem.
People complaining about not getting a video about first world problems to load while having the privilege to use the Internet and a computer might be ironic. What I wrote was the opposite of that and I just wanted to know what exactly was supposed to be ironic about being able to play a video on 4 computers while someone else can't.

The irony is First World Problems!
Can't get the video to load is the problem
The First world issue is us having 4 computers and three browsers to choose from.
(Understanding that the issue wasn't yours but Ant's, but the issue is still the same.)

We can't get a video about First World Issues to load while Second and Third World people, can't get food, or have homes, or electricity to even run a computer, even if they did own one - which they don't..

I tried playing the video on 4 different computers with 3 different browsers and it worked just fine. Maybe yours is missing a plugin?

Um, now it is trying to make me download the MP4. Please put the old code back! Supposedly, it will work in a few days.

I tried to modify the embed code to contain the direct link to the mp4, but Siftbot keeps telling me it's a dupe of the "Word Crimes" video. Otherwise it might have worked.

[Edit] I managed to embed the mp4 video!

I can't figure out why the embed says the video won't be released until 7/21/2014. I hope this issue will be fixed soon (it is possible to watch the video embedded on PopCrush, however).

“Weird Al” Yankovic - Handy (Parody of "Fancy")

Lilithia says...

This is the song he's parodying:



I didn't know it either and I was disappointed by this parody at first. I guess it's funnier if you know the original.

Somehow I can't put her last name in the title of the video. It always says "invalid entry". What's invalid about "Azalea"?

lucky760 said:

Boo. I don't know the song he's parodying.

That's the worst because I really want to appreciate it.
