Video Premiere: "Weird Al" Yankovic - Foil

"Weird Al" Yankovic mocks paranoid conspiracy theorists in the official visual for his parody of Lorde's smash hit single "Royals" called "Foil".

The parodist plays an avid proponent of aluminum foil, who hosts a cooking show in the self-directed music video. "Weird Al" Yankovic praises aluminum foil for its versatility and inadvertently lets us in on another use for the wonder wrap as he shows off his aluminum hat that protects him against the Illuminati and aliens.

Watch the Foil video below in all its glory and check out the lyrics section if you like to learn the words or just want to sing along.

Lyrics to Foil by "Weird Al" Yankovic

[Verse 1:]
I never seem to finish all my food
I always get a doggie bag from the waiter
So I just keep what's still unchewed
And I take it home, save it for later

[Pre-Chorus:]
But then I deal with fungal rot, bacterial formation
Microbes, enzymes, mold and oxidation
I don't care, I've got a secret trick up my sleeve
I never bother with baggies, glass jars, tupperware containers
Plastic cling wrap, really a no-brainer
I just like to keep all my flavors sealed in tight

[Chorus:]
With aluminum foil (foil)
Never settle for less
That kind of wrap is just the best
To keep your sandwich nice and fresh
Stick it in your cooler (cooler)
Eat it when you're ready
But maybe you'll choose (you'll choose, you'll choose, you'll choose)
A refreshing herbal tea

[sip] Mmm, lovely!

[Verse 2:]
Oh, by the way, I've cracked the code
I've figured out these shadow organizations
And the Illuminati know
That they're finally primed for world domination

[Pre-Chorus:]
And soon you've got black helicopters comin' cross the border
Puppet masters for the New World Order
Be aware: there's always someone that's watching you
And still the government won't admit they faked the whole moon landing
Thought control rays, psychotronic scanning
Don't mind that, I'm protected cause I made this hat

[Chorus:]
From aluminum foil (foil)
Wear a hat that’s foil lined
In case an alien's inclined
To probe your butt or read your mind
Looks a bit peculiar ('culiar)
Seems a little crazy
But someday I'll prove (I'll prove, I'll prove, I'll prove)
There's a big conspiracy
