Watch a Sad Clown Sing Lorde’s ‘Royals’ & Now We’ve Seen It All

It’s not every day we see a video featuring a guy in a clown costume and makeup performing a stirring cover of ‘Royals’ by Lorde. OK, so it’s never. This is literally the first time — and most likely the last.

Postmodern Jukebox, the fine YouTube band that’s brought us a 1950s Doo Wop Miley Cyrus cover and a vintage take on Carly Rae Jepsen’s ‘Call Me Maybe’ to name a few, is behind this rendition of Lorde’s radio hit. But you probably want to know more about the clown.

According to the group, the clown’s name is Puddles and he’s “a seven-foot-tall sad clown with a voice like Tom Jones.”

We can’t argue either point. Puddles the Clown’s deep and dark voice lends itself perfectly to ‘Royals,’ which Lorde herself sings with a power beyond her years. His cartoonish attire juxtaposes perfectly with the song’s lyrics about vice and outlandishness.

Also, who doesn’t love a sad, singing clown? It definitely beats the alternative.
