Weird Al Gets ‘Tacky’ in Downtown Los Angeles


Weird Al has a new video, “Tacky,” a satire on Pharrell’s “Happy.”

The sign for the Los Angeles Theatre is clearly visible in the shots, pegging this as Broadway in downtown Los Angeles.

The Los Angeles Theatre and the Palace (the old Orpheum Theatre) as shown in Google Street View.

So I’m guessing it was shot in the Palace.


Aha! The little round window clinches it as the Palace.

Yep. It’s the Palace. Congrats to Weird Al for shooting in dtla!
