it's right before he starts the line about the screwdriver. There is a sound effect and I hear behind it "freeze" then "Planks" then right after "Glue it Glue it."

Tacky is another great song from the album. Love the music video. Reminds me of Hardware Store, I suppose, because of the tool theme.

Holy crap! They KNEW what they were doing! They just NEW! Makes me smile as Taunton isn't too too far from me (I live in RI).

This song reminds me of one of my best friends who's a really good handyman so at the concert I went to I was like "Dad, this is *insert name of friend here*'s theme!" :D

Interesting Shower Thought I found on reddit - the opening lines of Handy (and Mandatory Fun) also refer to Al's career.
First things first, I'm a craftsman
Al works incredibly hard to replicate the originals he parodies.
Remodeling is my only passion
Al's parodies can be considered as "remodeling" the original songs.
And I'm the greatest in the business
Al is so well known as a parodist that any half-decent parody gets attributed to him.
Want referrals, yo? My clientele will bear you witness
His clientele (us) has been fanatical over decades.

Mind blown. Also one time I had trouble with a door and he said in the song that said he could help me. Ultimately I got it myself, but he totally could've helped if I didnt

It's not perfect by any means, totally admit that. Just an interest train of thought about this song. And I'm pretty much 100% sure this wasn't intentional, just a Weird Al fan overanalyzing something, which isn't something new to the fandom at all.

BP!! My grandmother lives right down the street. I have some friends that go there and I have a bunch of family members and family friends that have gone there. They played Handy the first day of my sophomore year during the announcements too. That's awesome haha
