The saga of Lana Del Rey reaches its inevitable Taiwanese animation chapter

By now, everyone is sick of the drama surrounding wannabe chanteuse Lana Del Rey. Or they at least have an opinion about said drama or the singer herself, whose Born To Die was released this week to a resounding critical “meh.” All of the hype, the vitriolic backlash, the SNL appearance, and the think-pieces defending Del Rey against the backlash—all before the album's release—make the Del Rey saga a good candidate to receive the Taiwanese animation treatment. It’s shorter compared to the animators’ other videos but it manages to tackle all of the elements described above and even takes a minute to wag a finger at the publicists responsible for the Del Rey “fame bubble.” Heavy is the head that wears the Hipster Runoff Crown.
