Weird Al Yankovic has released his latest musical parody, this time taking on Pharrell's "Happy."
Al's version, titled "Tacky," premiered on the Nerdist yesterday on July 14th. As the website notes, the video features a crop of cameo appearances from a number of comedy stars:
"Featuring guest appearances from comedians Aisha Tyler, Margaret Cho, Eric Stonestreet, Kristen Schaal and Jack Black, the video was shot on location at the historic Palace Theatre in Downtown Los Angeles, the same space that was used as Julianne Moore's apartment in 'The Big Lebowski.'"
The video is the first of Al's #8videos8days project. As he announced on Twitter on Sunday (July 13th): "I'll be premiering 8 brand new music videos - one every single day for 8 days - starting TOMORROW MORNING. (11 AM Eastern, 8 AM Pacific)"
On the basis of the strength of the first video, we here at Ultimate-Guitar can't wait to see what Weirld Al comes up with next.
