They're not quite Weird Al, but the folks at MLB Fan Cave show solid song-parody fundamentals in their latest video — turning Australian rapper Iggy Azalea's nauseating summer hit "Fancy" into a song about Tom Emanski, the king of baseball instructional videos.
The video transforms the "Fancy" hook into "Tom Eman-Ski, taught me how to throw / I learned the basics / from the '90s video." Mixed in, of course, is footage from Emanski's famous baseball videos that any fan of the era saw for sale on TV many, many times.
If you've somehow made it this far in your life without hearing "Fancy" — and I call shenanigans if you say you have, even my 3-year-old recognizes "the Fancy song" when it shows up in a commercial — here's the video. The Stew takes no responsibility for damage to your ears upon listening.
By the way, if you're wondering what the heck ever happened to Emanski, then read this great feature published recently by Erik Malinowski of Fox Sports.
