Weird Al Yankovic’s spoofs Pharrell’s Happy with some major fashion madness

Weird Al tacky

Weird Al start’s his song ‘Tacky‘ with the lyrics,”It might seem crazy wearing stripes and plaid. I instagram every meal I’ve had.” (hmmm… is he poking fun at the fashion social media set?) He follows with “Got some new glitter Uggs and a lovely pink sequined Crocs” – and that’s where the quotable quotes from the song end. After that we just wish Weird Al Yankovic was signing the actual Pharrell song ‘Happy’ instead of covering it. So what makes this video worth watching then? For one, the fashion is absolutely hilarious. Secondly, it is an absolute all star cast starring Aisha Tyler, Margaret Cho, Eric Stonestreet, Kristen Schaal and Jack Black. So if you have a few minutes, it’s worth a hilarious click.
