How do you even parody a song about a thrift shop?

Yesterday I posted about the rather horrible Christian knock-off of Mackelmore’s “Thrift Shop,” and made the aside that it wasn’t a parody because it wasn’t any sort of commentary on the original. That got me thinking, is it even possible to parody a hipster rapper who’s singing about shopping at thrift stores ironically? Trying to parody that seems like dividing by zero.
