Weird Al shows us his Tacky side in New Video

Your Monday morning just got a whole lot more fun, as Weird Al Yankovic has released the first video from his upcoming album, Mandatory Fun. The song is ‘Tacky,’ and as many had guessed it’s a hilarious send-up of the mega-hit ‘Happy’ by Pharrel Williams.

Members of the Allspark community have a long history with Weird Al Yankovic. His song ‘Dare to be Stupid’ featured prominently in the 1986 Transformers: the Movie, and he later voiced the characters Wreck-Gar on Transformers: Animated and Cheese Sandwich on My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic.

The video for ‘Tacky’ can be seen HERE via The Nerdist.

Mandatory Fun will be released tomorrow, July 15th, on CD and via digital download from RCA Records, and the fun doesn’t stop with ‘Tacky’ today. Connecting with fans via Twitter, Al has promised a new video each day for the next week to celebrate the new album!

Check out Weird Al’s site HERE to pre-order Mandatory Fun and then discuss the video and upcoming album HERE in the Allspark Forums!
