What’s This? – A Final Fantasy XV Parody

NOTE: If you would like to cover this song, then you are free to do so as long as you provide me with writing credit and a source to this post. Thanks!

And now for something completely different! I wanted to do something special for Christmas this year and upon hearing a friend of mine gush over how good Final Fantasy XV is, this dumb idea quickly sprouted in my head and I figured “Why the hell not?”

First things first, I’d like to thank one SerpentinePirate for creating this lyric-less version of the song and, of course, you lovely people for listening to it. Hopefully my singing isn’t so bad that it causes your ears to leak blood. And, if you’re curious, you can find the lyrics by clicking on the “Continue reading” link.

I hope you all have a fantastic Christmas, and if you don’t celebrate Christmas, I hope you just have a good day and a good new year in general. Happy Holidays!

What’s this? What’s this?
Black leather’s everywhere
What’s this?
A car flies through the air
What’s this?

I can’t believe my eyes
I must be dreaming
Wake up, Mike, this isn’t fair
What’s this?

What’s this? What’s this?
There’s something very wrong
What’s this?
There’s people having fun
What’s this?
The streets are lined with
Fans and critics laughing
Everybody seems so happy
Have I possibly gone daffy?
What is this? What’s this?

There’s great, wide, open fields
Instead of corridors
They’re busy doing quests
And absolutely no one’s bored

There’s stunning HD visuals
Oh, I can’t believe my eyes
This Grade A level quality
Is truly a surprise

Oh, look
What’s this?
They’ve got a hot mechanic, she’s Cid?
No, wait, her name’s Cidney. Wordplay!

They’re gathering around to get EXP
Cooking meat over an open fire
What’s this?

What’s this?
In here, it’s an all-male party, how queer
And who would ever think
And why?

They’re brimming with personality
They’ve got true camaraderie
I think Ignis is the best one
Prefer Prompto? Well you’re wrong

This looks like fun
This looks like fun
Oh, could it be I got my wish?
What’s this?

Oh my, what now?
The young prince is asleep
But look, there’s nothing underneath
No imps, no Tonberrys here to stab and scare him
Or ensnare him, only a little fox mascot
To keep him safe in dreamland

What’s this?

The dumb plot isn’t missing
But monotony can’t be found
And in its place there seems to be
Good gameplay all around
Instead of moans, I swear
I can hear cheering in the air
The happy fan-boy tears
Are absolutely everywhere

The sights, the sounds
They’re everywhere and all around
I’ve never felt so good before
This empty place inside of me is filling up
I simply cannot get enough
I want it, oh, I want it
Oh, I want it for my own
I’ve got to know
I’ve got to know
What is this game that I have found?
What is this?
