“Weird Al” strives for maximum profit, corporate synergy with “Mission Statement”

“Weird Al” Yankovic is wrapping up his “eight videos in eight days” run with “Mission Statement,” a business-centric take on Crosby, Stills & Nash’s “Suite: Judy Blue Eyes.” The perfect Monday morning song, “Mission Statement” is full of corporate jargon and phrases like “leverage our core competencies,” and the accompanying video by TruScribe uses whiteboard sketchiness to maximize the song’s profit potential.

And speaking of corporate synergy and ruthless businessmen, the video is only available today via an exclusive stream on the Wall Street Journal’s site. Talk about a savvy business move.
