For the third year in a row, the Auckland Law Revue has released parody videos as part of their annual comedy showcase.
The revue, which happened last weekend, debuted the group's latest video: Sh*t Better Spend My Money, a parody of Rihanna's latest single Bitch Better Have My Money, which takes on the social elite of Auckland.
In the video, a student fantasises about partying, drinking and being rich after watching classmates walk by. She sings about drinking champagne and spending her father's cash, while people fight each other for wearing the same outfit. The video opens with a warning to viewers that it includes narcissism, vapidity and a low awareness of reality.
The song includes swipes at the Fulltimer's Society and the Ya-Ya Club, two groups in Auckland that have become infamous for flaunting their wealth with expensive parties. It also name drops local brand Stolen Girlfriends Club and The Roxy, an Auckland central club that hosts many of the Fulltimer's parties.

Since the video went up on Tuesday, SBSMM has gotten over 4,000 views.
The first Law Revue video to gain attention was 2013's Defined Lines, a feminist parody of Robin Thicke's Blurred Lines. It quickly went viral, and caused controversy when YouTube took it down over its restricted content despite keeping the more inappropriate original online.
The group followed it up with last's year Fancy parody Ponsonby, which also parodied image-obsessed youths in Auckland.
Other parodies from this year's revue include a take on the Amy Poehler sitcom Parks and Recreation and an emotional version of Hozier's Take Me to Church that focuses on equal rights.
