22 Minutes' Lorde Parody Takes Aim At Tories (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

"This Hour Has 22 Minutes" has taken Harper's Tories to task in a parody of Lorde’s chart-topper, "Royals."

Instead of rhyming about Cristal, Maybach and diamonds on your timepiece, the "22 Minutes" singer, Borde, references Tory-specific spending controversies, like former Conservative cabinet minister Bev Oda’s $16 orange juice and the Senate expense scandal.

But the chorus is the real highlight.

“We’ll never be Tories, we don’t have that kind of luck. The Action Plan don’t work for us, we don’t even know what it does. Have you met their ruler? You can call him King Steve. And he rules until 2015.”

Check out the tune in the video above.

This Hour Has 22 Minutes airs on CBC TV Tuesday nights at 8:30 p.m. Catch more clips of the show on Facebook and Twitter.
