‘I’m So Hungry’ Parody Of Iggy Azalea’s ‘Fancy’ Is Our New Song of the Summer

Who would have thought that the best parody of Iggy Azalea’s “Fancy” would be about food?
In a week filled with parody videos (Weird Al is releasing one new song each day this week), our favorite one comes from a very unlikely source. To celebrate Ramadan, which goes from June 28 to July 28 this year, Heidi Naguib, a documentary filmmaker and artist in Washington, D.C., rewrote the words to Azalea’s hit song to be “I’m So Hungry.”
While Azalea’s version is a main contender for song of the summer, we’re confident calling Naguib’s version the song of Ramadan — if there is such a thing.
In the video, two Muslim women rap about what it’s like to fast during the day, and then eat a large meal in the evening after sundown as part of the holiday. The chorus sums it up perfectly: “I’m so hungry / You already know / I’m in the buffet / Till I can’t eat no more.”
Yazzy and Netti, the women in the video, are spot-on, even down to rapping their names a the end. Pretty impressive for two grad students. It might be an unconventional topic for a rap parody video, but we’re definitely going to have “I’m So Hungry” stuck in our heads for the rest of the day.
