13 iconic Weird Al looks from ‘Tacky,’ ‘UHF,’ and more

July 15, 2014

The first track off his 14th album (!!!), Mandatory Fun, is “Tacky”—Weird Al’s millionth latest single, which has also given us first of eight videos we’ll see come out over the next few days.

And look, “Tacky” sees Weird Al doing what he does best: making good jokes set to melodies we already know. And this time, his video features the sounds of Pharrell William’s “Happy” and cameos by Aisha Taylor, Margaret Cho, Eric Stonestreet, Kristen Schaal, and Jack Black. Which is great! Funny people working together is the only thing better than funny people working with Internet famous cats. But let’s at least acknowledge the true star of the video: Weird Al’s fashion sense. Which has actually been a huge player in his persona since before he even began pursuing music full-time.

So with that said, here’s our round-up of the 13 most iconic Weird Al looks. And remember that if you think we’ve forgotten one, you’re wrong. (Just kidding: sound off in the comments.)
