Weird Al is back with a new album and eight days of ridiculous video. Finally, a reason to get up on a Monday. The comedic musician is kicking off the promo for his new disc, Mandatory Fun, with Tacky, his take on Pharrell’s infectious single, Happy.
The video for the new single, which describes all things tacky, such as asking a woman whether she’s pregnant and taking someone out for dinner and not paying, features a varied cast of comedians. Kicking off with Aisha Tyler in green, sequined Uggs, the single-take performance video then moves on to Margaret Cho, Eric Stonestreet, Kristen Schaal and finally Jack Black, before returning to Weird Al in his second tacky outfit.
Weird Al’s #8videos8days project continues tomorrow, with new videos popping up each day on his site WeirdAl.com. It’s Christmas in July, people.Tweet
