Weird Al Spoofs Pharrell’s ‘Happy’ With ‘Tacky’ [VIDEO]

Weird Al Yankovic will be premiering a new video each day for eight days from his new album, ‘Mandatory Fun,’ which will be hitting CD shelves and digital stores tomorrow, July 15. ‘Mandatory Fun’ will be Weird Al’s first parody album since 2011’s ‘Alpocalypse.’

The first video showcased today is ‘Tacky,’ Weird Al’s take on Pharrell‘s ‘Happy.’ The video opens to Weird Al doing an exaggerated version of Pharrell’s ‘Happy’ dance, wearing outrageous colors and singing, “It might seem crazy wearing strips of plaid / I’ve Instagrammed every meal I’ve had / All my used liquor bottles are on display / We can go to see the show but I’ll make you pay.”

He then hands it off to Aisha Tyler, who continues the chorus, ‘Because I’m tacky…” repeated with examples of cheap or off-putting behavior. Some of the gems include, ‘Wear my Ed Hardy shirt with my fluorescent orange pants / Got my new resume, it’s printed in Comic Sans.”

Other comedians that appear in ‘Tacky’ include Margaret Cho, Eric Stonestreet, Kristen Schaal and Jack Black. The video gives the impression that it was shot in one take, as we see the other comedians mouthing and dancing to the words of ‘Tacky’ at the Palace Theatre in Los Angeles, Calif., before handing the song off to the next person.
