'Weird Al' Returns with Star-Studded 'Tacky' Music Video Spoofing Pharrell's 'Happy'
See Jack Black and Margaret Cho dance in the most painfully flashy clothes imaginable
“Weird Al” Yankovic is primed for a hilarious return.
On Tuesday, the accordion-adoring parody musician is set to release Mandatory Fun – his newest album. To help promote the record, Yankovic, 54, is pulling a quasi-Beyoncé and posting a new music video from his album each day, for the next eight days.
The fun started Monday with the upload of his “Tacky” music video, a silly rework of Pharrell Williams’s Oscar-nominated hit “Happy.”
All the performers are decked out in some of the brightest, flashiest, clashiest and, well, tackiest clothes imaginable, while lip-synching lyrics like “I Instagram every meal I’ve had” and “Practice my twerking moves in line at the DMV.” Somehow, Yankovic even manages to make singing about YOLO cool again.
