“Weird Al” Yankovic Parodies Lorde’s “Royals” With “Foil”: Watch The Video

Who knew “Weird Al” Yankovic was going to be as prolific as Queen Beyonce by rolling out a new music video each day this week? Following “Tacky” and “Word Crimes,” the next order of business off new album Mandatory Fun is “Foil,” a goof on Lorde‘s “Royals.” The video has Yankovic teaming up with College Humor and depicts the pop comedian as a looney tunes cooking show host (watch for Patton Oswalt‘s turn as Al’s producer) who goes from singing the praises of aluminum foil to theorizing on the Illuminati’s takeover of the world.

Lest you doubt “Weird Al”s domination this week in the rather barren music world, Mandatory Fun is currently the top-selling album on iTunes.
