Lana Del Rey, 'Hunger Games' Parodied in New Music Video (Video)
Chicago comedian Holly Laurent delivers a spot on impersonation of the “Video Games” singer, while delivering lines about Katniss, Gale and Peeta.
There are two things the blogosphere apparently cannot get enough of -- Lana Del Rey and The Hunger Games. Now, the two have become one thanks to Chicago comedian Holly Laurent and the latest viral video du jour.
In a new found-footage clip, Laurant croons about The Hunger Games to the tune of Del Rey’s “Video Games.” The vocals are nearly a perfect match, while the lyrics are bound to prompt laughs from anyone familiar with Suzanne Collins’ trilogy, which is being made into a four-part film series by Lionsgate.
“Hunting in the meadow, Gale’s this guy that I know, he’s got a girl’s name,” she drones. “This district smells like rat piss, my name is Katniss, I’ll play the Hunger Games. I rock a bow and arrow, I hate the President Snow, he smells like a rose.” The two-minute clip features snippets from the film's trailer, which stars Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson and Liam Hemsworth.
Watch the video below for the full effect. Also, see Del Rey’s original video here for a more complete comparison.
