If you’re tacky and you know it… er, happy…

It feels like we’re finally stepping out of a worldwide nightmare. Oh, we’re not out of the woods yet. COVID still rages in the U.S. and abroad, as does a certain recent election loser who cannot accept reality. Beloved celebrities continue to die, not to mention the toughest blows of all in the losses of Ruth Bader Ginsberg and John Lewis — although he may have gotten his posthumous revenge.

So I’m taking a bit of a breather in my busy schedule, and giving you a little moment that is the perfect combination for the Right Now. The original song is Happy by Pharrell Williams, and I think that describes the mood for all of us on the progressive, positive, right side of history.

But I present in its Al Yankovic parody version, Tacky, which describes the behavior we’ve been seeing from a certain (soon to be former) First Family and their enablers of late.

Bonus fun points: This was shot in one take — or there were very clever editing cheats — in a typical downtown L.A. theatre building, meaning five floors up and, though we don’t see it here, five floors down. The cast is also stuffed with some pretty well-known names and faces.
