Alanis Morrissette's Ironic... rejigged to actually make it ironic
After all these years, it’s finally ironic.

WE ALL KNOW that the most ironic thing about Alanis Morrissette’s 1996 hit ‘Ironic’ is that none of the examples used in the song are in any way ironic.

Enter sisters Eliza and Rachael Hurwitz. Eliza is a stand up comedian, while Rachael is a singer-songwriter–the perfect combination to create ‘It’s Finally Ironic’. The video features much of the same lyrics as Morrissette’s original ironic situations, but additions are made to reflect the true meaning of the word.

An old man turned 98, won the lottery and died the next day… from a severe paper cut from his lottery ticket.
It’s a black fly, in your Chardonnay… that was specifically purchased to repel black flies.
It’s 10,000 spoons you bought with your only knife, but now you need a knife.

Ed Byrne will be delighted.
