Where were this poor kid's friends when he came up with the dreadful idea to re-interpret Lorde's "Royals" with a Kansas City swing? Better yet, where was his dad?

Unfortunately, the New Zealand singer's song was somewhat inspired by the KC baseball team. As she explained in a VH1 interview:

"I'd been kind of thinking about writing that song for a while and been pulling together a couple little lines here and there, and I had this image from the National Geographic of this dude signing baseballs. He was a baseball player and his shirt said Royals. I was like, I really like that word, because I'm a big word fetishist. I'll pick a word and I'll pin an idea to that."
