Gay music video parody master Ryan James Yezak has just released his parody to Britney Spears’ monster hit, “Hold It Against Me“. If you checked out my Top 10 Gay Parodies of 2010, you’d know that his videos were five out of the ten I included in the list – he’s really good at what he does.
Yezak always releases a video announcing what his next parody will be, and he did just that a week ago. Needless to say, I was on the edge of my seat waiting to see what he’d come up with for this one. He had informed everyone that a fierce dancer by the name of Donna Hood, who had made appearances in a couple of his previous videos, would be starring as Britney in the video.
Although it’s well made and he tries some things he hasn’t before, it’s not my favorite. I feel like he definitely has moved away from his usual gay music video parodies in this one and instead just made his own interpretation of what he would make the music video look like if he was directing Spears’ video. I mean, I don’t blame him for wanting to make himself more marketable as a director by not focusing only on gay videos…but I just didn’t enjoy it as much. There’s a world of difference between this one and the entertainment value of his parody for Katy Perry’s “Peacock“, for example. See for yourself.
So, what did you think?
