Not really that much of a shame, since the version that exists is already awesome enough.

Re: 'Tacky' by Weird Al Yankovic

One of the greater things about Tacky is how it completely makes fun of current obsessions, everything from Instagramming everything you eat to my personal fave line, which is, "my brand new resume is written in Comic Sans".

Re: 'Tacky' by Weird Al Yankovic

Can someone post a link to the campaign to have Weird Al be the Super Bowl halftime show?

it'd be perfect -- no worries of "wardrobe malfunctions", middle fingers, or words to be bleeped out. And if a couple of the celebrities he's parodying could JOIN him for part of the real song, part of the Al version -- it'd get the crowd crazy!

How many songs would get?


I could see the lineup of

1. Classic Al song
2. Mandatory Fun song
3. Brand New song available to download 10 minutes before the premiere
4. A Polka medley of 2014 hits
