Weird Al's new album off to 'Tacky' start

  • King of the musical parody has new album of silly songs out today
  • Includes spoofs of 'Blurred Lines', 'Royals', and 'Happy'
  • Will release new video every day for 8 days
Weird Al Yankovic's new album 'Manditory Fun' features spoof of Pharrell's hit 'Happy' called 'Tacky.'

Weird Al Yankovic is back with a new album packed with parodies.

It's called "Mandatory Fun" and he'll be releasing a new video from it every day for eight days.

The #8videos8days project kicked off Monday with a cameo-rific version of Pharrell's 'Happy' called "Tacky".

Weird Al is joined by comedians Aisha Tyler, Margaret Cho, Eric Stonestreet from "Modern Family," Kristen Schaal and Jack Black (rocking a very tacky bedazzled fanny pack):

Other tracks on "Mandatory Fun" include a spoof of Lorde's "Royals" called "Foil," which is an homage to aluminum sandwich wrap; a take on Iggy Azalea's "Fancy" about being good with tools called "Handy" and "Word Crimes," a rant about bad grammar set to the tune of Robin Thicke's "Blurred Lines."

Check for a new video every day through July 21.
