WATCH: Billy Ray Cyrus appears in 'Achy Breaky 2' rap video alongside Buck 22 with twerking aliens

Billy Ray Cyrus may be better known these days for being the father of Miley, and for his co-starring role a few years back with his daughter on the tv show "Hannah Montana."

But he first became known for his one-hit wonder, the pop-country hit "Achy Breaky Heart" in 1992.

Now, 22 years later, it's "Achy Breaky" time once again.

Billy Ray Cyrus appears in a new music video by Buck 22 entitled "Achy Breaky 2" that was released on Tuesday.

Buck 22 is Damon Elliott, the 40-year-old son of R&B legend Dionne Warwick.

The pair met when when Elliott was Billy Ray's duet with Warwick for her upcoming 50th anniversary album.

Here are some random observations:

- Larry King (and his suspenders) begin the video with an appropriate apology and wedges in a timely and relevant shout-out to Muhammad Ali/Cassius Clay.

- Cyrus continually strums a guitar throughout the video (that isn't plugged in and isn't heard throughout the song), presumably to give him something to do.

- Nearly-naked models clad in mainly electrical tape (apparently they supposed to be the "aliens") twerk for Cyrus and take hits from oh-so-futuristic vaporizers.

- Buck 22 and Cyrus first appear with a nod to Andy Griffith with Cyrus as his current self, but Buck 22 as a child.

- Once they are beamed onboard a space ship, Buck 22 instantly ages about 25-30 years, while Cyrus remains the same age.

- A few times the "young" Buck 22 appears in the space ship, dancing at one point and observing his older self and Billy Ray Cyrus at another point.

- A random photographer shows up to take a few snapshots of Billy Ray and Buck 22.

I'm sure I missed some of the weirdness.
