“Weird Al” Yankovic is releasing eight new music videos, with the first debuting July 14. As part of his #8videos8days project, “Tacky” is the first video to hit the web.

“Tacky” is a parody of Pharrell Williams’ “Happy,” a video that people love to create music videos for. (RELATED: University Police Department Filmed ‘Happy’ Video While On Duty [VIDEO])

The video premiered on the Nerdist and is described as a “wonderfully warped and wacky version” of Pharrell’s hit.

Comedians Aisha Tyler, Margaret Cho, Eric Stonestreet, Kristen Schaal and Jack Black appear in Yankovic’s latest video, all tackily dressed and dancing awkwardly.

Yankovic’s CD “Mandatory Fun” releases July 15, with 12 new tracks, including “Tacky.”
