Musical Interlude: Tacky (2014)

You know you've made it as an artist if your hit song has been skewered by the redoubtable "Weird" Al Yankovic.

Earlier this week, Yankovic released his latest, "Mandatory Fun", issuing 8 videos all at once. It's likely all of them can be found on Al's VEVO channel, which is where we found his send-up of Pharrell Williams' "Happy".

"Tacky" is Al at his goofiest. Aided by Aisha Tyler (The Talk, Whose Line is it Anyway?), Eric Stonestreet (Modern Family), Jack Black, Kristen Schaal, & Margaret Cho, Al rhapsodizes on loud fashions and other things that are, well, "Tacky":

Where were the Hawaiian shirts when you really needed them?

I caught this last week and thought it was hysterical! Dare I say "Tacky" ranks up there with "Eat It"! Nice to know Weird Al hasn't lost his touch!

I also love "Word Crimes", his spoof of Robin Thicke's song, "Blurred Lines" ! Truer words were never sung!

Eventually, I may get all 8 of Al's videos from the new CD up.

BTW, next time you're at ToonZone, I left a PM for you.
