‘Weird Al’ Yankovic Spoofs Pharrell’s ‘Happy’ in ‘Tacky’ Video

If you’re tired of hearing Pharrell Williams‘ cheerful anthem ‘Happy’ on the radio, we think you’ll get a good laugh at “Weird Al” Yankovic‘s brilliant parody of the producer’s hit single.

The comedian-satirist premiered his hilarious new video for ‘Tacky,’ which is a cheeky hat tip to Skateboard P’s ubiquitous song ‘Happy.’

The funny clip boasts Yankovic and his comedy friends dancing throughout Los Angeles’ Palace Theatre. Among the celebrities appearing in the video include Aisha Tyler, Margaret Cho, Kristen Schaal, Modern Family’s Eric Stonestreet and Jack Black — all of whom are wearing outrageously loud and colorful outfits.

However, the real laughs come by the way of “Weird Al”‘s absurd lyrics.

“Can’t nothing bring me shame,” he sings on the clap breakdown before adding tacky examples like, “Bring along a coupon whenever I’m on a date” or “Twerking in line at the DMV,” and the real kicker, “Live-tweet a funeral, take selfies with the deceased.”

We hope that “Weird Al”‘s video goes insanely viral in the same way that Pharrell’s clip did last year. In addition, the comedian has eight more parody videos he plans to release in the coming weeks.

‘Tacky’ is from “Weird Al” Yankovic’s comedy album, ‘Mandatory Fun,’ which hits stores on Tuesday (July 15). The collection features parodies of chart-topping songs such as Robin Thicke’s ‘Blurred Lines,’ Iggy Azalea’s ‘Fancy,’ Lorde’s ‘Royals’ and Imagine Dragons’ ‘Radioactive.’
