This Microsoft Paint Music Video for Lizzo's 'Truth Hurts' Might Be Better Than the Original

Lizzo performs at O2 Forum Kentish Town on May 27, 2019 in London, England. 

Lizzo​'s "Truth Hurts" got a literal interpretation via Microsoft Paint, and it's perfect.

The video, uploaded by Literal MSPaint on YouTube, takes on the Hot 100 chart topper, showing a man grating cheese transitioning into a bee grating cheese for the opening line, "Why men great 'til they gotta be great?" Get it? Why men grate 'till they gotta bee grate?   

Another hilarious standout is the "bom bom be dom, be dom bom bay," after the chorus, which the video interpreted as a sequence of images: two bombs, a bee, Harry Dunne (aka "dumb" from Dumb and Dumber), another bee, Lloyd Christman ("dumber" from Dumb and Dumber), and a star indicating Bombay on a map. The whole thing ends up reading as "bomb bomb bee dumb, bee dumb Bombay." Genius.   

Watch the whole thing below.
