The Killers' Cover of Iggy Azalea's "Fancy" Involves Some Sweet Interpretive Dance Moves — VIDEO
It's definitely the song of summer; even Obama was caught singing Iggy Azalea's "Fancy." But now, The Killers have offered their cover of "Fancy," ascertaining their place in the Hall of "Fancy" Covers Fame Slash Notoriety. Brandon Flowers and crew covered the popular song during their concert at the V Festival in Staffordshire, England and played it as a bit in between the rest of their regular set. The audience went nuts. "Fancy" does that to a crowd.
However, it's likely that the real reason that the crowd started shrieking is the interpretive dancing that goes on. Yes, the moving and grooving you'll see is pretty... special, to say the least, and some of the moves might even bring to mind Napoleon Dynamite's pre D-Qwon's Dance Groves moves, or his dancing in The Happy Hands Club.
And, of course, there's the obligatory lyrical shout-out to Staffordshire (I'm in the fast lane/from L.A. to Staffordshire), which makes fans go even crazier. Perhaps it's the combination of dance moves, the piano in the background, the personalization, and the fact that it's "Fancy" that makes this such a unique experience for a viewer.
It's worth noting that The Killers only dive into Charli XCX's hook in the video — we don't get to see them spew some any of Iggy's rhymes — but it's still worth a watch. They're so fancy, they already know.
