Video of the Day: Lana Del Rey’s “Hunger Games”


Believe it or not, we are trying our hardest here at Flavorpill HQ to stop feeding the Lana Del Rey fire. But we can’t just ignore this brilliant Suzanne Collins/LDR mash-up from Holly Laurent of Second City. In Lana Del Rey’s “Hunger Games,” Laurent replaces the lovelorn words to “Video Games” with verses on Katniss and company, giving us such brilliant couplets as, “Heard you haven’t finished book three/ Honey, when you do…” The visual element, which replaces Del Rey’s pastiche with overexposed shots of retro-futurist landscapes, stinky fish, and early footage from The Hunger Games movie, is also spot on. We especially like that Laurent’s mini-bouffant reminds us more of Snooki than Lana.
