Aisha Tyler, Eric Stonestreet Make Cameo Appearances In ‘Weird Al’ Yankovic’s ‘Tacky’ Video
By George Fox
In case you missed it — two personalities from shows you’ve seen on CW50 appeared in Yankovic’s parody of Pharell’s ‘Happy’. Aisha Tyler from “Whose Line Is It Anyway” and Eric Stonestreet from “Modern Family” lent their outlandish personalities to the music video wearing obnoxious outfits and lip syncing the lyrics to the song. Margaret Cho, Kristen Schaal and Jack Black also appeared in the video.
Tyler pushes Yankovic out of the shot and dances through the room atop the Palace Theatre in Downtown Los Angeles.
Stonestreet relieves Cho with a swagger to the elevator handing the performance off to Schaal — who is brilliant IMHO.
The clashing colors of the wardrobe are fantastically bad including everything from fire shirts, feather hats and glitter Uggs.
Tacky is the first edition of Yankovic’s #8videos8days campaign.
How many of the examples in the song are you guilty of? What’s the tackiest thing you’ve ever experienced? Leave us a comment.
