Weird Al’s Parody of Lorde’s “Royals” Is About…Foil

You might even be blinded by science

“Weird Al” Yankovic’s latest music video is a parody of Lorde’s “Royals” about aluminum foil. It also features a cameo by Patton Oswalt.

Sample lyric: “I just like to keep all my flavors 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.” Things start to get a little weird, however, when he starts ranting about conspiracy theories.

Weird Al is releasing a music video a day for eight days to promote his new album Mandatory Fun, which came out July 15. Past spoofs include a parody of Pharrell Williams’s “Happy” called “Tacky” and a grammar-themed parody of Robin Thicke’s “Blurred Lines” called “Word Crimes.”
