MUSIC MON! EVERYBODY (ESPECIALLY THE ILLUMINATI, REPTILLIANS, & WEIRD AL) WANT TO RULE THE WORLD!
Weird Al Yankovic's newest album, Mandatory Fun, has taken the internet (which, at this point, pretty much represents the world, I suppose) by storm in the most potent parody blitzkrieg since, well, the last time that Weird Al delivered the goods!
As part of the campaign to get people hyped and entertained the masses, Weird Al has released about a half-dozen music videos that, with a little google searching, you can find on the various sites he debuted them on. There are a lot of solid videos that show that Weird Al is as good as ever, as if there were any doubt, but my favorite has to be his parody of Lorde's "Royals".
This video starts off in kind of a predictable way but, brilliantly, takes quite a dark and clever turn about halfway in. I love it.
Speaking of things I love, how does a Game of Thrones bonus video sound for my fellow up-to-date GoT fans? How about a montage of the series set to Lorde's cover of Tears for Fears "Everybody Wants to Rule the World"? Are you not entertained?
