Weird Al strikes again and this time, Pharrell William's Happy gets a Tacky makeover. As the title suggests, everyone in the music video, including Weird Al is tacky and proud of it.

Tacky has clashing graphic patterns, crazy hair, a whole lot of fabulous, and Jack Black's dance moves – you read that right – recorded in an impressive long shot. Directed by Weird Al himself, the funky music video stars Aisha Tyler, Margaret Cho, Eric Stonestreet, Kristen Schaal, and Jack Black.

Listen closely to the lyrics for a near-complete compendium of tacky things you, we, everyone does. Be it wearing socks with sandals, Instagramming every meal you have (cough), sticking forty-three bumper stickers on your car, or writing your resume in Comic Sans, as the song says "if you think that's just fine, then you're probably tacky too."

Weird Al's Tacky single and his entire Mandatory Fun album are available on iTunes.
