Less than a week ago, Scott Bradlee posted a beautifully bizarre cover of the massively popular single "Royals" by New Zealand's Lorde.

Bradlee, who plays piano in the backing band, describes Puddles as a "seven-foot-tall sad clown with a voice like Tom Jones." You got that right.

Compare the two versions of "Royals" and let us know what you think of the Puddles the Clown's take in the comments section below.
