The lyrics are densely stuffed with as many examples of tackiness as possible, ranging from the obvious to the hysterically specific. There are at least four digital/social media references (Instagram, Yelp, live-Tweeting and selfies at a funeral), fashion faux pas (socks with sandals, etc), decorating fails (used liquor bottles on display, YOLO license plates), a double-whammy name dropping/Kanye West joke, and "Got my new resume; it's printed in Comic Sans!" Yankovic even manages to pull off an inevitable twerking reference that's actually funny rather than tired ("practice my twerking moves in line at the DMV"), which is a definite achievement.
There's a brief shout-out to the Lady Gaga monster claw near the end, which should delight anyone who remembers arguably Yankovic's greatest artistic achievement, the brilliant Lady Gaga exegesis "Perform This Way." In fact, while we're waiting for the seven additional music videos Yankovic plans to release over the next seven days, this would be a good time to take a look back at that video as well, don't you think?
