TORONTO — Another day, another Weird Al parody video.

On Wednesday, Weird Al Yankovic took the wraps off the third video for a song on his new album, Mandatory Fun.

In “Foil” — a spoof of Lorde’s ubiquitous “Royals” — Yankovic plays a TV cooking show host obsessed with keeping food fresh.

“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,” he sings at the beginning of the song.

The video follows Tuesday’s “Blurred Lines” parody, “Word Crimes”, and Monday’s “”Happy” spoof, “Tacky.”

“Foil” is likely the only song this summer to include the phrases “fungal rot” and “probe your butt.”
