[watch] Lana Del Rey’s “Hunger Games”

What happens when you combine the vocal stylings of Lana Del Rey and the Hunger Games?  One of the best parodies I’ve seen in awhile.

This was all made possible by the very talented Chicago writer, actor and improviser, Holly Laurent.  Laurent’s channels Lana Del Rey flawlessly.  Heck, if I didn’t know better, I could easily mistake this for a legitimate Del Rey track.  Granted, if you know nothing of the Hunger Games, you may not enjoy this video as much, but it’s hard not to laugh at lines like “they drew the name of my sis, but don’t you fuck with Katniss, i’ll kill you fo’ sho’.”

But you don’t have to take my word for it, check out the video and decide for yourself.

And if you feel like comparing it to the original, “Video Games”

[on the road] Lana Del Rey

American singer/songwriter Lana Del Rey is heading out later this Fall for a quick tour, mostly in Europe, but there are two stops in the US (NY & LA).  She’ll be touring in support of her soon-to-be released EP Video Games/Blue Jeans.  If you plan on going to any of these shows, don’t delay, tickets are going super fast.  And if you haven’t listened to “Video Games” yet (you must be living under a rock, if that’s the case), do it.  Definitely one of the best tracks of 2011.
