'Weird Al' drops star-studded spoof of Pharrell’s ‘Happy’ (watch)

Clap along if you feel like watching Jack Black twerk (he does at 2:18)


"Weird Al" Yankovic is rolling out his new album, "Mandatory Fun," by releasing eight videos over the next eight days. The first one comes in the form of a parody of Pharrell's "Happy," one of the biggest singles of 2014 so far, dubbed "Tacky" -- watch the send-up below (via Nerdist):

Here are a few of the lyrical gems contained within (via Zumic):

It might seem crazy wearing stripes with plaid / I Instagram every meal I’ve had

***

I meet some chick, ask her this or that / Like, “Are you pregnant, girl, or just really fat?”

***

Wear my Ed Hardy shirt with florescent orange pants / Got my new résumé, it’s printed in Comic Sans

***

43 bumper stickers and a YOLO license plate  / Bring along my coupon book whenever I’m on a date

***

I get drunk at the bank and take off my shirt at least / I would live tweet a funeral, take selfies with the deceased
