Weird Al Turns Lorde’s ‘Royals’ Into A Song About Foil And Somehow Also The Illuminati

“Weird Al” Yankovic is no stranger to food-based parodies (where would he be without “Eat It?”), but his spoof of Lorde’s song, entitled “Foil,” is about so much more than leftovers.
In the third release off his new album, “Mandatory Fun,” Weird Al teamed up with CollegeHumor on a music video for the song that turns Lorde’s infectious “Royals” into a diddy about the many, wonderful uses of foil (e.g. making a hat so aliens can’t read your mind).
Featuring cameos from Patton Oswalt, Thomas Lennon and Robert Ben Garrant, the music video starts with food preservation and ends with an illuminati conspiracy theory.
