Track: Tacky  
Artist: Weird All  
Album: Mandatory Fun  
Mood: Funky fun

Weird Al is back. The first song to be premiered off his upcoming album Mandatory Fun is ‘Tacky’, his take on Pharrell’s hit ‘Happy’. The song’s video is laden with cameos, with appearances from Jack Black, Aisha Tyler, Margaret Cho, Kristen Schaal, and the swagger that is Modern Family‘s Eric Stonestreet, all dressed tackily, all dancing goofily. The video is shot at the Los Angeles Palace Theatre, where Julianne Moore’s apartment was in The Big Lebowski.

 

The track is filled with tackylicious lines, from YOLO license plates to live tweeting funerals and Instagramming every single meal you eat. Mandatory Fun also includes parodies of Lorde’s ‘Royals’, Imagine Dragons’ ‘Radioactive’, and Robin Thicke’s ‘Blurred Lines’, and comes out July 15th. Watch the video for ‘Tacky’ here.
