    Weird Al Yankovic Parodies Pharrell's "Happy" With "Tacky"—Watch the Hilarious Video!

    We wonder if Pharrell Williams has gotten wind of this...

    Weird Al Yankovic debuted the music video for his first single from his upcoming album Mandatory Fun on Monday, and in anticipation of the record's release, the 54-year-old celeb will be sharing eight new videos over the next eight days.

    The first of which is a parody of the Pharrell's hit jam "Happy" and has been cleverly renamed "Tacky" in an effort to poke fun at the tackiest folks in our society with a little help from Aisha Tyler, Margaret Cho, Eric Stonestreet, Kristen Schaal and Jack Black, who are all featured in the clip.

    Among the tacky offenses highlighted in the tune?

    "Wear my Ed Hardy shirt with florescent orange pants," Stonestreet lip-syncs. "Got my new resume, it's printed in Comic Sans!"

    "43 bumper stickers and a YOLO license plate, bring along my coupon book whenever I'm on a date," Black adds. "Practice my twerking skills at the DMV, took the whole bowl of restaurant mints because they said they're free."

    The track also calls out the sandals-with-socks wearers and the live-tweeters in addition to the over-Instagrammers and the notorious name-droppers. Oh, and did we mention Jack Black twerks? Yeah, that happens.

    Yankovic's latest record, which comes three years after his previous album, will also feature parodies of Miley Cyrus, Lorde, Robin Thicke and Iggy Azalea.
