Weird Al Mocks Spoiled Generation — Watch ‘First World Problems’

Weird Al is always up for a new parody. Instead of poking fun at celebrities in his latest video “First World Problems,” Weird Al decided to spoof the rock group the Pixies and also mock the entire spoiled generation!

In “First World Problems,” Weird Al sports a platinum blond wig and complains about the most frivolous things.

From not having small enough bills for the vending machine to having too many groceries in the fridge, nothing is off limits to Weird Al. 

Weird Al’s character in the music video is pretentious to say the least. However, the music video is hilarious and a nice change from his parody of celebs. The parody artist detailed his idea for the music video in an all-new interview.

“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,” Weird Al 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!”

This is the latest music video off his album, Mandatory Fun. We can’t wait to hear the rest!

Weird Al sure looked like he had a blast making this video. Be sure to check out the video and the lyrics of Weird Al’s latest funny video below.

Weird Al’s “First World Problems” lyrics:

My maid is cleaning my bathroom, so I can’t take a shower
When I do, the water starts getting cold after an hour
I couldn’t order off the breakfast menu, cause I slept in till two
Then I filled up on bread, didn’t leave any room for tiramisu
Oh no, there’s a pixel out in the corner of my laptop screen
I don’t have any bills in my wallet small enough for the vending machine
Some idiot just called me up on the phone, what!? Don’t they know how to text? OMG!
I got

First world, first world problems
(First world problems)
First world, first world problems
(First world problems)
First world, first world problems

I bought too many groceries for my refrigerator
Forgot my gardener’s name, I’ll have to ask him later
Tried to fast forward commercials, can’t – I’m watching live T.V
I’m pretty sure the cookies in this airport lounge ain’t gluten free
My barista didn’t even bother to make a design in the foam on the top of my vanilla latte


Can’t remember which car I drove to the mall
My Sonicare won’t recharge, now I gotta brush my teeth like a neanderathal
The thread count on these cotton sheets has got me itching
My house is so big, I can’t get WiFi in the kitchen
Uh, I had to buy something I didn’t even need just
so I could qualify for free shipping on Amazon
