Packer Fan's Parody of Lorde's "Royal" Goes Viral Featured

Olivia Rose Hotchkiss started the day with little reason to doubt her favorite football team would win that evening on national TV. Of course, no one other than a local Milwaukee sports columnist could have predicted The Franchise, Aaron Rodgers would hit the turf and then the bench like he did.

 

Nonetheless, Hotchkiss took to her camera with a little thrown-together beat track to sing a parody of Lourde's smash single "Royal" with a little wit and Packer fever. If love is blind, Hotchkiss hopefully didn't have to see the end of a game most of the nation watched in frustration (we all know Green Bay is, was and always will be "America's Team"). The video however, posted on her Facebook page in the late morning, fell anywhere but on blind eyes as it had been shared nearly 12,000 times by the end of game time. On Youtube, it's already been viewed nearly 30,000 times.

 

Exhibiting perfect timing, great self-awareness and a cleverly-placed kiss on a cardboard likeness of Rodgers' face, one the most memorable and irresistable lines were, "With a team like Rodgers, Matthews, Jordy and Raji. Anyone that I name is better than anyone on your team. And we do care, cuz we’re not losing like the Vikings or Bears."

 

Were bears fans gracious in her loss last night? "I've been called [names], but just the typical 'well you guys lost..." Nothing too original. Not that we expect anything more clever from our victorious opponents down south. The song is funny enough, but the singing is actually pretty good too. She credits her mom giving her and the siblings piano lessons for her musical ability, having sung most of her life. "I've been singing my whole life. My mom had us in piano lessons and such, so I've always loved music," she told us in an interview. Well done mom, Packer Nation thanks you.

 

Rodgers himself recently took a turn at the singing gig as part of his recent ItsAaron.com segments with David Gruber. The video also went viral and we reported on it yesterday. Perhaps there's a chance at a duet? No answer yet.

 

Hotchkiss, 23 and a native of the Wausau, WI area is now living in Titletown, U.S.A. She moved after graduating college in Eau Claire and now works as a model and actress, having appeared in a Footlocker promotion and as a model-representative for Chemish Clothing.

 

Something she might have to that resume: singer/songwriter.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The lyrics to "Packer" can be found below, for all those among us who tried to sleep off the loss but are still upset and need a little "pep-rhyme."

 

 

I’ve always been a Packer fan

It’s easy to cheer on a team that always winning

And I am proud of my address

I live in Titletown, Green Bay Wisconsin

 

Where everybody’s like “Packers are winning, playoffs are beginning, heading to the Superbowl, you know how the story goes, cuz we do care… cuz we’re not losing like the Vikings or bears.”

With a team like Rodgers, Matthews, Jordy and Raji. Anyone that I name is better than anyone on your team, and we do care, cuz we’re not losing like the Vikings or Bears.

 

Chorus:

And I’ll always be a Packer Backer

It just runs in our blood

This kind of sport was made for us

We watch it while we’re gettin’ buzzed

Drinkin’ from our coolers, coolers

In zero degrees, cuz baby we rep, we rep, we rep, we rep,

Reppin’ for the Gold and Green

My friends and I would catch a cold

Just to tailgate in the street near lambeau

And anyone who knows us knows

That we’ll be taking shots during every touchdown

 

Cuz everybody’s like “Packers are winning, playoffs are beginning, heading to the Superbowl, you know how the story goes, cuz we do care… cuz we’re not losing like the Vikings or bears.”

With a team like Rodgers, Matthews, Jordy and Raji. Anyone that I name is better than anyone on your team, we do care, cuz we’re not losing like the Vikings or Bears.

(Chorus)

 

Ohhhh, ohhhh, ohhhh

We’re better than you’ll ever be

And I’m in love with Gold and Green. *kisses Rodgers likeness*

Ohhhh, ohhhh, ohhhh

Life is great without a care

When you’re not cheering for the Vikings or Bears

(Chorus)
