It took a while, but we finally have a quality collection of Iggy Azalea’s “Fancy” parodies. Admittedly, some are better than others. We rank our favorites so far.
We’re not 100 percent sure what Josh’s deal is, but he does have a knack for stringing very random rhymes together. We could probably do without the kiwi reference, but we can’t help but giggle every time he tells the plastic owl, “You’re so creepy.”
4. “I’m So Hungry”
People magazine touts this as being better than Weird Al’s “Trashy” and that it’s the new song of the summer. We have to politely disagree. It’s funny and catchy, but the singing is hard on the ears. Still, it’s worth a look/listen.
3. “I’m So Married”
This clever parody is where we start to see the quality of parodies improve. This parody takes us from the newlywed phase to one year out and five years out. Minivans, toilet seats in the upright position, Friday nights on the couch, remote disputes — all marriage pitfalls are neatly represented here.
2. “I’m So Pregnant”
This has been a favorite from early on. Parodists (is that a word?) rush to be the first to parody a popular song and quality is often compromised as a result. Not so with this little gem. It was one of the first and with lines like, “Acid reflux, you should taste that,” it remains one of the best.
1. “I’m Not Fancy”
Our favorite parody of Azalea’s “Fancy” is “I’m Not Fancy.” Now we’re talking. These mommies pack in so many day-in-the-life funnies, you have to watch it more than once to fully appreciate it. “I’m not fancy, I’ve got a 2-year-old. I’m stuck in the slow lane, singing along to Elmo.” Nailed it!
