“Weird Al” Yankovic Parodies Lorde With His New Song & Video For “Foil”

By: Amelia McDonell-Parry / July 16, 2014

“Weird Al” Yankovic! Still a thing! And he has a new album of relatively funny parody songs called Mandatory Fun. Every day for eight days leading up to the album’s release, Weird Al has been releasing a new music video, and today’s is admittedly not to be missed. “Foil” is a parody of Lorde’s “Royals” and yes, it’s about the highly useful household product. Frankly, I think foil is more worthy of tribute song than those “royals” Lorde was singing about. I mean, you can use it to make a DIY robot costume for Halloween and to cover up your leftovers.
