Weird Al Yankovic Recreates Pharrell's 'Happy' in 'Tacky' Music Video


The video, which finds the parodist spoofing Pharrell's 'Happy' visuals, also stars Jack Black, Margaret Cho, Aisha Tyler, Kristen Schaal and Eric Stonestreet.

Weird Al Yankovic has released the music video of "Tacky", one of the songs set to be included in his upcoming album "Mandatory Fun". Arriving on Monday, July 14, the clip finds the singer/parodist recreating Pharrell Williams' wildly popular hit "Happy" and its accompanying visuals.

"Tacky" was shot at the Palace Theatre in downtown Los Angeles. Weird Al appears at the beginning of the video, sporting a multi-colored tacky outfit before later talking about tacky things like Instagramming pictures of someone's every meal, live-tweeting a funeral and taking selfies with the deceased, using Comic Sans font on a resume and owning a YOLO license plate.

"Bring me shame, can't nothing/ Bring me shame, can never know why," he sings. Also starring in the music video are Jack Black, Margaret Cho, Aisha Tyler, Kristen Schaal and Eric Stonestreet.

"Mandatory Fun" is coming out on Tuesday, July 15. The record features Weird Al's parodies of Iggy Azalea's "Fancy", Lorde's "Royals" and Robin Thicke's "Blurred Lines" among others.
