Weird Al does it again with his cover of Lorde’s ‘Royals’ – featuring aliens, the Illuminati and… erm, tin foil. Obvs.
‘Weird Al’ Yankovic has taken on Lorde – well he DOES already have the hair for it – in the third installment of his #8Videos8Days, and it is just as brilliantly weird as you would imagine.
Changing the lyrics of ‘Royals’ to ‘Foil’, Weird Al covers all the important tinfoil-related issues, including wrapping your leftovers to creating an anti-alien hat.
The video starts off innocently enough, but takes a weird turn in the middle when the topic turns to the Illuminati and alien invasions. Because that is TOTALLY what we associate foil with…
The second video from the #8Videos8Days series was Pharrell Williams' 'Happy' converted to 'Tacky', completed with eye-watering outfits.
