Weird Al Yankovic is about to release his 14th album, “Mandatory Fun” and plans to release eight music videos over the next eight days.

Monday’s video was parody of Pharrell’s “Happy” — one of the biggest singles of 2014.

The video includes appearances by Aisha Tyler, Margaret Cho, Jack Black, and Kristen Schaal and “Modern Family’s” Eric Stonestreet, all dressed in clothes that might be considered well, tacky.

“Mandatory Fun” might be Yankovic’s final album. His last was released in June 2011.

E-Online reports that the album will also parody Miley Cyrus, Lorde and Robin Thicke.

“I don’t know that I’m going to be doing any more traditional albums after this point, now that my record label deal is over,” Yankovic recently told NPR. “I think that digital distribution is more the way for me to go: putting out a single at a time, possibly two or three tracks or an EP. I don’t know that putting out 12 songs at once in this day and age is the best way for me to get my music out there, because if I’m waiting that long, chances are a lot of the material is going to be somewhat dated by the time it comes out.”
