Weird Al Yankovic's 'Tacky' Pharrell Parody Is Perfect

    Pharrell's "Happy" music video: Who hasn't whipped up their own homemade parody at this point? All of the viral mayhem aside, it would have been a total travesty if music's mock-hero Weird Al Yankovic passed on such an easy target for his new album Madatory Fun, due out tomorrow (7/15).

    Yankovic brilliantly ingested the overplayed phenomenon and revamped both its lyrics and video as "Tacky". The video features doofy dance appearances by Jack Black, Kristen Schaal, Eric Stonestreet, Aisha Tyler, and Margaret Cho, who lip Al's words while dressed in outrageous costumes. The video is the first of Yankovic's #8videos8days project, so we should expect a daily dose of musical comedy throughout the entire week. Watch below:

    UPDATE: Check out Weird Al's polka remix of Daft Punk's "Get Lucky" here.

    Mandatory Fun is due out July 15th. Pre-order your copy here.
