Lana Del Rey has been all over the news recently for her performance on “Saturday Night Live” and for pushing back her upcoming tour. But even with all the negativity in the air, there is good press going around the internet for both Lana and for “The Hunger Games” franchise.

Second City comedienne Holly Laurent parodies Lana’s original “Video Games” music video, which is made up of shots of the 25-year-old singing forlornly intercut with clips from an old camera. Holly’s version re-words the song to be about the book-series and upcoming film series “The Hunger Games,” so it includes snippets from the trailer starring Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson and Liam Hemsworth.

The new lyrics are hilarious if you know anything about the teen novels. “Watching all these tributes fall / teens should be at the mall /  I hope I never have to go back to play the Hunger Games,” sings Holly.

Check out the “Hunger Games” parody below, and if you want to compare, hit play on Lana’s original “Video Games” below that.
