And makes fun of conspiracy nuts...
Weird Al Yankovic has released the third of his planned eight music videos from Mandatory Fun, and this time he's parodying Lorde's "Royals". The song is called "Foil" and features Al singing about the benefits of aluminum foil (on a cooking show directed by Patton Oswalt). The video then switches to make fun of conspiracy nuts as Weird Al calls out the Illuminati. But don't worry, foil will also help you stop them from reading your thoughts. Thomas Lennon and Robert Ben Garant make an appearance as mysterious men in black who take Al away.
This follows the release of "Tacky" (a parody of Pharrell Williams' "Happy") and "Word Crimes" (a parody of Robin Thicke's "Blurred Lines").
