Beyonce has inspired her share of viral videos, but I haven’t seen one this good in quite some time.
In the following video that is just starting to go viral, a young asian boy (wearing a Snuggie) has recreated Beyonce’s “Countdown” music video and it’s so well done. I seriously couldn’t take my eyes off of it. The choreography and facial expressions were bang on, the editing was amazing, and the wardrobe and set were as perfect as he could probably achieve on his own. In the header photo, I included some screen shots from the video to give you a little taste of what to expect.
He first released the video on it’s own earlier this month, but since then a new video has come out that puts Beyonce’s version and his side by side as a comparison to show you how bang on everything is. I’ve included both videos below. Watch and enjoy!
With our TVs taken over by shows like The Glass House, Big Brother, and The Bachelorette this summer, it was the perfect time for The Onion to unleash a hilarious parody reality show they’ve called ‘Sex House‘. They’ve released the first episode, titled “Meet The Nymphos“.
Here’s the premise of the show: “Six sexy singles move into America’s hottest mansion meticulously designed for only one thing: sex. Tara, Jay and the gang kick off the best three months of their lives with a killer party featuring an ultra-sexy surprise ending.”
One of my favorite parts is when the “homosexual” guy realizes he’s the only gay guy in the house and has no one to hook up with. “I find it impossible to believe that they didn’t cast another gay guy. That would be a major oversight.” Watch episode 1 below.
While most people (and muppets) are still making parodies of Carly Rae Jepsen‘s “Call Me Maybe” hit, others are still not over LMFAO’s “I’m Sexy And I Know It” song from last summer. Enter the Peterson Farm Brothers.
Their humorous and informative parody is called “I’m Farming And I Grow It,” promoting agriculture and showing everything that the do to help “feed everybody”. Some of the lyrics include: “When I step to the bunk (yeah) / This is what I see (Uh-huh)
All the hungry cattle are staring at me / I got passion for my plants and I ain’t afraid to show it show it show it show it / I’m farming and I grow it.”
I love this parody because they’re actually showing what their life is like, even sitting down at the table with their family and including them in the video. Did I mention this video has almost 5.5 million views? Check it out below!
Another day, another Carly Rae Jepsen “Call Me Maybe” parody. This one’s a little different though as it’s Sesame Street’s “Cookie Monster” that’s singing the song.
When I first pushed play, I wasn’t sure if I could endure it the whole time because Cookie Monster doesn’t have the most pleasant sounding voice. That being said, the lyrics of his song “Share It Maybe” totally made up for it. Set in an office, Cookie monster sees cookies and wants his coworkers to share with him singing, “Hey, me just met you, and this is crazy, but you got cookie so share it maybe”. LOL.
The song hit number one on the iTunes singles chart and Billboard‘s Hot 100 chart in June and has been parodied by so many gays, celebrities, sports teams, and now puppets/muppets. We had the pleasure of meeting Carly Rae Jepsen a few days ago. Anyway, enjoy the video below and “Share It Maybe”!
I grew up watching the ‘Golden Girls‘ and if you are/were a fan of the Emmy Award-winning show, you will love the video you’re about to watch.
What happens when four superhero friends retire and move to Miami to share a ranch style home? The following video. Someone remade the Golden Girls intro into a cartoon and replaced all of the characters with superheros. In the video, we have Batman as the grumpy Dorothy, Robin as the outspoken Sophia, Aquaman as naive Rose, and Superman as the slutty Blanche.
The creator of the video writes, “This is a pilot I’d like to propose to Cartoon Network’s Adult Swim, if I knew anyone who worked there, and if all the licenses could be obtained.” Can you imagine? I would totally watch this cartoon. The part in the intro where Blanche/Superman does the sway walk down the hall is my favorite. I’ve included both the parody and the original intro should you want to compare for accuracy.
A couple weeks ago, I wrote about this hilarious musical parody of ‘Beauty and the Beast‘ that was seriously the best parody I’ve seen all year. Today, I’ve got another one worth watching, this time focussing on the controversial book, “Fifty Shades Of Grey“. Of course this isn’t the first parody done on the book. Selena Gomez did a Funny or Die video called “Fifty Shades Of Blue” that was laugh-out-loud funny was well.
The racy book has created so much discussion, with some absolutely hating it and wanting to have it banned from libraries, while others secretly loving it. Well, this musical parody captures exactly that. “Fifty Shades Of Grey, how could I refuse? In my boring life as a plain housewife, I can dream of being sexually abused,” sings one woman. On the flipside, another sings, “Fifty Shades Of Grey, no way! Every page I read, makes my eyeballs bleed. Someone please explain how this makes sense”.
A guy even shares his thoughts on what he’s reading, but I’ll make you watch the video below to see how he feels about what he’s reading. Enjoy the video below!
Typically, Drew Droege makes us wait months in between his hilarious Chloe Sevigny spoofs. So, you can only imagine my surprise (and delight) when a brand new video premiered just days after “Thirty” for OutFest’s 30th anniversary hit online. Christmas has come early for me.
In the past, Chloe has talked about her fondness of accessories, Memorial Day, and barbeque. Now, she’s sharing some of her workout tips in “Exercise“. Just wait til you hear her mispronunciations in this clip, especially the word “exercise”. She definitely doesn’t disappoint. Watch the video to see how the Chinese, Garnier Fructis, garden sweeping and shopping at Harrods all factor in her exercise regiment. It’s time to get physical and watch the clip below.
If you love “Star Wars” and can’t stop listening to Gotye’s “Somebody That I Used To Love”, then you’re going to love this. YouTube user teddiefilms created a spoof of the catchy track, changing the lyrics to tell a story of heartbreak which Star Wars fans everywhere can relate. Titled “The Star Wars That I Used To Know“, the newly-revised song provides a litany of criticisms regarding George Lucas’ overuse of graphics and digital revisionism.
Even if you’re not a fan of “Star Wars“, the clip is still definitely worth watching. They did an outstanding job, not only with the lyrics but with the quality of replicating the original music video. It even features former “Survivor” contestant, Tyson Apostol, in one of the singing portions. Check it out below.
