The Hunger Games Gets Lana Del Rey Parody

The parody video (embedded above)  mixes a catchy Lana Del Rey song with the mega-bestselling book series. Follow this link to watch the original song by Lana Del Rey–what do you think?

The song was written and performed by comedian Holly Laurent with some extra lyrics from Martin Wilson. It contains a little NSFW language.

Time Newsfeed has more: “The result of this epiphany is a music video with Laurent doing a dead-ringer imitation of sultry and controversial singer Lana Del Rey’s song ‘Video Games,’ set to lyrics inspired by Suzanne Collins’ dystopian young-adult novel and soon-to-be blockbuster movie, The Hunger Games. The lyrics are as inspired as the pairing, making you laugh and cry in equal parts: ‘I don’t want Peeta to be dead/A pita is a pouch of bread/But that’s his name.’” (Link via)
