“Weird” Al Yankovic parodies Pharrell’s “Happy” and Daft Punk’s “Get Lucky”

Consequence of Sound

As two of the biggest “Songs of the Summer” in recent memory, Pharrell’s “Happy” and Daft Punk’s “Get Lucky” have been the source of countless parodies. Some have been entertaining, while others, like the Minecraft-inspired “Get Crafty”, have been downright offensive. Now, a true parody professional emerges, as one “Weird” Al Yankovic takes aims at both smash singles.

With “Tacky”, the “Weird” one spoofs “Happy”, calling out everyone who dares wear plaid with stripes or starts every meal by posting a picture to Instagram. The lyrical content may be less “life is great!” and more “stop being awful people”, but Yankovic offers a joyful video. Joined by Jack Black, Aisha Tyler, Margaret Cho, Eric Stonestreet, and other actors and comedians, Yankovic shimmies and struts his way through the Palace Theatre in downtown Los Angeles. Really digging that sweet airbrushed t-shirt there, Al.
