Weird Al Is Releasing Eight New Videos in Eight Days . . . and the First One Is a Parody of “Happy” Featuring Jack Black
“WEIRD AL” YANKOVIC has a new album out today called “Mandatory Fun”.
It includes parodies of songs by Lorde, Imagine Dragons, and Iggy Azalea. There’s also a parody of Robin Thicke’s “Blurred Lines” called “Word Crimes”.
To go with the album, Weird Al is releasing EIGHT new music videos . . . one each day . . . for the next week or so. The first one came out yesterday. It’s a parody of Pharrell’s “Happy” called “Tacky”.
In the video, Aisha Tyler, Margaret Cho, Eric Stonestreet from “Modern Family” and other celebrities dance around in tacky clothes. But the best part is probably Jack Black’s cameo near the end.
