The world has been Weird Al-less since 2011 — it was three years ago that Alpocalypse was released, bringing us gems like “Polka Face”. His new album, Mandatory Fun, drops tomorrow and he’s gifting us with eight new videos, one each day this week. First up, he tackles the most parody-worthy song in recent memory: “Happy”.
“Tacky” could easily be subtitled “Things Bros Say” and it’s hard not to fall in love with Al all over again with lines like I Instagram every meal I’ve had and Got my new resume it’s printed in Comic Sans. In true faux-Pharrell style, Weird Al taps a menagerie of famous folk like Kristen Schaal and Jack Black to traipse through Los Angeles with him while lip syncing and wearing garish outfits.
Other songs we might expect this week, thanks to the track listing, include “Word Crimes”, “Foil” and “Handy” — you can guess what songs they’re skewering, Google around to find out what they might be, or just sit back and let the Weird wash over you all week. [Weird Al]
