Sia “Cheap Thrills” Parody | Jordan Winery “Grape Thrills” Official Music Video

Just in time for Sia’s Nostalgic for the Present Tour, Jordan Winery’s most ambitious music video parody premieres this week. It’s a vinous rendition of Sia’s hit “Cheap Thrills” aptly entitled, “Grape Thrills.” Inspired by the performance edit official music video, our latest spoof features original lyrics and performances by our staff.  (Be sure to watch the credits at the end of the video for a list of employees in order of appearance.) We hope the studio dancers’ outfits, at the very least, give you some Sia Halloween costume ideas with a little wine country flair.

Writing new lyrics with a Chardonnay grape harvest theme required us to find a vocalist–no Sia soundalikes on the winery payroll, sadly–so we enlisted Teresa Cesario, sister to Jordan’s Ashley Cesario. Our friend Leo Kaliski, a composer from Southern California who also worked with us on last year’s Star Wars parody, recreated the music. The “Grape Thrills” lyrics and original “Cheap Thrills” video are included below for your entertainment. Feel free to share this post with the hashtag #grapethrills and #nostalgicforthewinetour.

“Grape Thrills”

Lyrics

Come on, come on. Turn the headlamps on.
It’s Friday night; harvest won’t be long.
Gotta grab my knife; I wanna pick til’ dawn.
It’s Friday night, and it won’t be long.
‘Till we fill gondolas, fill gondolas.
Pick for acidity.
No I don’t want sun.
Just moonlight, hon.
I got cold fruit, baby.

Baby, all I need is a harvest moon to make wine tonight.
(I love grape thrills!)
Baby, all I need is a balanced vine to make wine tonight.
(I love grape thrills!)
But I don’t want no cougar juice.
I want a Chard that tastes like fruit.
I don’t need high alcohol.
‘Want a wine that pairs with it all.

Come on, come on, turn the hopper on.
It’s Saturday; sorting table’s long.
Gotta taste press cuts, turn my TankNet on.
It’s Saturday; ferments won’t be long.

‘Til it hits the barrel.
Hits the barrel.
Juice got purity.
We don’t want butter.
We don’t want jam.
It tastes like Burgundy.

Baby, all I need is a harvest moon to make wine tonight.
(I love grape thrills!)
Baby, all I need to a balanced vine to make wine tonight.
(I love grape thrills!)

But I don’t want no cougar juice.
I want a Chard that tastes like fruit.
I don’t need high alcohol.
‘Want a wine that pairs with it all.

(I love grape thrills!)
