Weird Al Yankovic Spoofs CSNY In Mission Statement Video

For an eight-day period that ended yesterday "Weird Al" Yankovic has unleashed a new video a day featuring tracks off his new album, Mandatory Fun. The last video in the series is for the song "Mission Statement," which parodies the style of Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young.

"Mission Statement's" lyrics contain a number of the buzzwords used by corporate officers for big conglomerates around the world. "I wanted to do a song about all the ridiculous double-speak and meaningless buzzwords that I’ve been hearing in office environments my entire life. I just thought it would be ironic to juxtapose that with the song stylings of CSN, whose music pretty much symbolizes the antithesis of corporate America," Yankovic told the Wall Street Journal (how ironic!).
