While we were catching up with a few words of wisdom from Weird Al Yankovic today (as one does), we came to a brutal realization. We — yes, we the fashion editors of R29 — are tacky. Bummer, right? Keep in mind, however, that we're basing our conclusion solely on the lyrics and costumes of the comedian's latest musical masterpiece.
Borrowing the melody of Pharrell's "Happy," "Tacky" is just as "why am I humming this six hours later" catchy.
