Nerdist is premiering “Weird Al” Yankovic’s first video for his #8videos8days project. Here is “Tacky,” his version of Pharrell’s much loved (then hated) hit “Happy.” With guest spots by Aisha Tyler, Margaret Cho, Eric Stonestreet, Kristen Schaal and Jack Black, the video was shot at the Palace Theatre in LA. Nerdist’s Chris Hardwick couldn’t contain his delight at working with Al;
“Al has ALWAYS been one of my idols. If you had told teenage me that I would one day not only be friends with him but also get to produce a video for him, my young brain wouldn’t have been able to process it. I have watched ‘Tacky’ dozens of times and I can’t stop singing it. I LOVE YOU AL.”
The new album “Mandatory Fun” premieres a new video every day with #8videos8days all week. The weirdo’s still got it.
