Weird Al Parodies Lorde In New Song ‘Foil’ — Watch Hysterical Video

Weird Al never seizes to make us laugh! If his spoof on Robin Thicke’s ‘Blurred Lines’ wasn’t enough, mocking Lorde will definitely! His new music video is filled tons of aluminum foil — yes, you read that right! Check out the video right here!

Weird Al Yankovic, 54, was proud to announce on his Twitter page on July that his new song, “Foil” was ready — and the music video was out. The song is a parody on ‘Royal’ by Lorde, and he twists the lyrics in his own wacky way to make the song be about aluminum foil. Where does he come up with these ideas? Even though the song is pretty strange, you can’t help but  laugh.

Weird Al’s ‘Foil’ Spoofs ‘Royal’

Weird Al’s newest album, Mandatory Fun, mocks a numerous amount of singers — including Miley Cyrus, Pharrell Williams, Robin Thicke and Iggy Azalea.

Sorry, Lorde — looks like you were his next target. Weird Al changed ‘Royal’ into ‘Foil’ and put his own spin on it! It turns out to be one crazy aluminum foil filled music video!

Look below for the full lyrics of Weird Al’s new song:

I never seem to finish all my food
I always get a doggie bag from the waiter
So I just keep what’s still unchewed
And I take it home, save it for later

But then I deal with fungal rot, bacterial formation
Microbes, enzymes, mould and oxidation
I don’t care, I’ve got a secret trick up my sleeve
I never bother with baggies, glass jars, tupperware containers
Plastic cling wrap, really a no-brainer
I just like to keep all my flavours sealed in tight

With aluminum foil (foil)
Never settle for less
That kind of wrap is just the best
To keep your sandwich nice and fresh
Stick it in your cooler (cooler)
Eat it when you’re ready
But maybe you’ll choose (you’ll choose, you’ll choose, you’ll choose)
A refreshing herbal tea

[sip] Mmm, lovely!

Oh, by the way, I’ve cracked the code
I’ve figured out these shadow organizations
And the Illuminati know
That they’re finally primed for world domination

And soon you’ve got black helicopters comin’ cross the border
Puppet masters for the New World Order
Be aware: there’s always someone that’s watching you
And still the government won’t admit they faked the whole moon landing
Thought control rays, psychotronic scanning
Don’t mind that, I’m protected cause I made this hat
From aluminum foil (foil)
Wear a hat that’s foil lined
In case an alien’s inclined
To probe your butt or read your mind
Looks a bit peculiar (‘culiar)
Seems a little crazy
But someday I’ll prove (I’ll prove, I’ll prove, I’ll prove)
There’s a big conspiracy

Weird Al does it again! What do you think of his spoof on “Royals,” HollywoodLifers? Is he overdoing it now or is he still really funny? Let us know what you are thinking!
