Video: Weird Al’s “FOIL”

I can’t help but share this. Here’s the third music video from Weird Al Yankovic’s latest album Mandatory Fun.

It’s a parody of Lorde’s “Royals” called, well, “FOIL.” Yeah, it’s about aluminium foil.

And it’s surprisingly relevant.

You can check out Weird Al’s other videos over at his official website. He’s releasing a new one every day for eight days, and we’ve already seen his parodies of Pharrell Williams’ “Happy” (called “Tacky”) and Robin Thicke’s “Blurred Lines” (called “Word Crimes”).

Cheesy but fun, just like always.

And honestly, the only time I ever listen to popular music like this is through parodies or Postmodern Jukebox.

      Very cool. When I first saw the video, I had no idea where he was going with the Illuminati stuff, but then I was like “Of course!”

      I know, it was a very unexpected but hilarious turn, I think it really made the song.

    This was so funny! Most humorous thing I’ve seen in a long time.
