Good Lorde: Puddles the Sad Clown singing ‘Royals’ will drive a Cadillac in your scary dreams

Puddles is a seven-foot sad clown with a voice like Tom Jones. Lorde is a 16-year-old (17 on Thursday!) New Zealand pop singer. So naturally their paths would cross on Halloween.

Yesterday, Scott Bradlee and Postmodern Jukebox posted this video (and Bandcamp release) of Puddles singing “Royals,” and it’s enough to either wake up the dead on Día de los Muertos, or simply keep your scary Halloween nightmares running through November.

Puddles will never be “Royals.”

Sad face.
