(Newser) – Weird Al Yankovic's latest album, Mandatory Fun, is out today—and to celebrate, the parody artist is releasing eight music videos in eight days, Nerdist reports. Yesterday's was "Tacky," a parody of Pharrell's "Happy" that features Jack Black, Kristen Schaal, Margaret Cho, Eric Stonestreet, and Aisha Tyler—plus Al, of course—in their tackiest outfits, singing or lip-syncing to lyrics like, "I would live-tweet a funeral, take selfies with the deceased." Based on Al's website, today's video will be "Word Crimes"—Vulture took a look at the album's track list last week, and guessed "Word Crimes" would be a parody of Robin Thicke's "Blurred Lines."
