A hip-hop sequel to Billy Ray Cyrus' 1992 hit "Achy Breaky Heart" was just released, and it can only be described as hilariously terrible.

"Achy Breaky 2," which takes place in some sort of spaceship/Knott's Scary Farm maze, is the end result of a collaboration between Cyrus and Buck 22, who is the son of Dionne Warwick. Buck raps about Miley Cyrus in front of her father while scantily clad twerkers flop around all over the place. Meanwhile, Billy Ray's vocals in the chorus have been reduced to creepily robotic chants, possibly in keeping with the video's space-y theme. It's a sequel to an already bad song that nobody really wanted.

At least they got Larry King to lead off the video with an apology.
