Trend Hunter’s Armida Ascano Discusses Tacky By Weird Al Yankovic and Others

 - Jul 17, 2014
The parody is not a new form of satirical comedy, but many ordinary people (and some celebrities who have become famous for it) are creating truly hilarious song parodies of popular tracks. Trend Hunter Senior Editor and Research Expert Armida Ascano talks about song parodies that are off the charts funny.

If you can’t get Fancy by Iggy Azalea out of your head, perhaps ‘I’m So Pregnant’ will be a nice change. Or if you prefer male rappers, a Toronto citizen created a Punjabi themed video for Drake’s Worst Behavior. For members of the Bey Hive, a debt-themed Partition parody is the exact opposite of what Beyonce’s song was about. Lorde’s Royals is redone to combat ethnic stereotypes and stock roles on TV. Meanwhile parody master Weird Al takes on Pharell’s Happy with a celebrity-filled variation called ‘Tacky.’
