If it looks like the video for Weird Al’s “Tacky” was insanely fun to shoot, that’s because it was. With all those talented, funny people (read: Jack Black, Kristen Schaal, Eric Stonestreet, Margaret Cho, and Aisha Tyler) in one place, dressed in the tackiest costumes of all time, there was absolutely no one in the city of Los Angeles having a better time than those of us who were able to see just exactly how “Tacky” came together scene by scene.
So we thought, why not share the experience and give you loyal nerds a taste of what it was like to be on set? Below, we have included a collection of our favorite behind-the-scenes photos that capture Al and the gang doing what they do best: goofing off and making us smile so hard the corners of our mouth hurt. Some highlights include Jack Black teaching Kristen Schaal and our editor in chief Brian Walton how to twerk, Eric Stonestreet owning the spotlight on the top floor of the Palace Theatre, and Weird Al smiling for the camera in his dressing room.
