Brian McKnight's absolutely ridiculously, tongue-in-cheek new single, "If Ur Ready to Learn," has received the appropriately over-the-top music video it so deserves. He shot the visuals as part of a collaboration with the folks at Funny Or Die, which means that, yes, it's outrageous.

We're talking, um, weird sock puppets, uncomfortable anatomy lessons, and the weirdest exam ever. Do remember: this is all a joke and has been. That's the word according to McKnight:

I just saw the video at now is there anyone who still believes that this is my new direction. Sheesh!!!!
