Weird Foil Parodies

Al Yankovic Makes Fun of the Illuminati and Lorde in his Royals Parody

— July 17, 2014 — Pop Culture
Continuing with his effort to release a new video from his new album this week, today's Weird Al Yankovic music video is 'Foil,' a Royals parody. To the tune of 'Royals' by Lorde, 'Foil' is a song and accompanying video about the many uses Weird Al has for aluminum foil.

From keeping his food fresh and keeping fungal contaminations at bay to protecting his noggin from invasive alien procedures and the Illuminati's global domination, this Royals parody is as wonderful and weird as we could hope for.
Similar to his previous release Tacky (a Pharell Williams Happy parody), this music video is star-studded with appearances by Oswald Patton and Thomas Lennon.

The video is currently uploaded to the College Humor YouTube page.
