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.
As you may or may not know, Justin Bieber has a new song with Nicki Minaj called “Beauty and the Beat” and it’s actually one of my favorite songs on his new ‘Believe’ album. Well, today I came across this new parody that took the concept of the title, and focussed on a scene from the classic tale of ‘Beauty and the Beast‘ to create one of the best parodies I’ve seen all year.
In this modern take on the fairy tale, Belle is in the hood and the people are not the same characters you remember from the original – Gaston is far more gangsta. One of my favorite parts was when Belle looks through a tabloid mag with a guy and she sings, “Ohhhhh, isn’t this a hot mess / Who would name their first born Blue Ivyyyy / Heeeere’s Kim Kardash & Kanye / Wonder If they’ll have a brand new show on BET”. LOL.
Seriously, this is amazing and you have to watch it. The video is by Todick Hall and also features YouTube stars Antoine Dodson and Glozell. Check it out below!
The hilarious Tripp and Tyler are back with another funny video. You may recall the videos I wrote about for “Every Presentation Ever” and “Sh*t Nobody Says” – that was these guys. This new one is titled Averagé. Note: Make sure you say that with the accent so it sounds super fancy.
It’s a faux advert for what they coin as “America’s Most Popular Clothing Line“. Their values at Averagé are Practicality, Comfort, and Practicality and the designer gets most of his inspiration from Applebee’s. You may not know this, but as the designer explained, “You cannot buy a braided belt that’s too long.” The more you know, right?
“Fashion. It’s not about looking good. It’s about feeling good, and looking okay.” LOL. Feel better about your own fashion sense by checking out this hilarious video below.
One of my favorite people in the world, Ellen DeGeneres did a little parody of herself in the movie ‘The Avengers‘ (which just hit theatres this weekend) and I just had to show it to you.
As you know, The Avengers stars Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, Chris Hemsworth, and Scarlett Johansson among others and they all have special powers. So, what’s Ellen’s special power? She’s… “The Rambler”.
If you’ve ever listened to Ellen’s monologues, she’s incredible at rambling and moving from one topic to the next without warning. Watch Ellen with the other cast members in the parody below!
My friends Ryan Steele and Jeff Lynch are at it again. In the past year, the two funny guys have teamed up to reenact some famous female scenes in drag and today they just released a new one for ‘The Fighter‘. Thus far, they have tackled Tyra Bank’s freaking out ANTM, Clueless, Sister Act 2, and Jesse addicted to caffeine pills on Saved By The Bell.
In this scene from ‘The Fighter,’ Melissa Leo’s character (played by Ryan Steele) shows up to ask her son Mickey (Mark Wahlburg in the film but played by the hilarious Amy Goodmurphy in this video) why he’s been hiding out. Amy Adams‘ character (played by Jeff Lynch) sets Mickey’s mom and her daughters off and it’s an all out brawl on the porch.
Watch the parody below and share it with your friends! Oh, and PS I’m one of the ugly sisters in the video. Watch for me storming up the stairs upon arrival , to the left of Mickey’s mom (that’s me front & centre in the photo above). Enjoy!
After Kelly Osbourne made RuPaul’s Drag Race disqualified queen Willam lip sync for her life against Eden’s World star Eden Wood on Logo’s 2012 New Now Next Awards to Selena Gomez’s “Love U Like a Love Song”, Willam decided to write a version of the tune that she could really wrap her lips around.
With the finale of Season 4 of RuPaul’s Drag Race last night, the timing couldn’t be more perfect. So what’s the verdict on the video? It’s actually REALLY good – both visually and lyrically. She successfully turned Gomez song into a hilarious dirty parody and the lyrics are freaking hilarious.
There’s also of course lots of eye candy in the video, model Steven Dehler. Check it out below!
We all know the popular song “We Are Young” by Fun, but this parody titled “We’re Not Young” is a must-see. Some say that life begins at 30, but the stars of “We’re Not Young” aren’t exactly living the good life. The video, done by Yahoo!’s SketchY comedy series is both sad and funny. Here are some of the lyrics:
“Tonight, we’re not young / We’re all somewhere in our 30′s / And nothing worthy / This ain’t fun / Tonight, we’re not young / I guess that I’ll learn photoshop / Maybe I’ll sell pot / Start a blog.”
This is by far the best parody I’ve seen in a long time. The concept is clever, the lyrics are bang on, and the actors are freaking hilarious. If you’re looking for a good laugh, check out the video below.
Last week, I wrote about the Burger King commercial starring Mary J. Blige that was taken down because it was creating quite a stir with people saying that the ad promoted a negative stereotype (aka African Americans love for chicken). Blige apologized to the upset African American community, saying “I agreed to be a part of a fun and creative campaign that was supposed to feature a dream sequence. Unfortunately, that’s not what was happening in that clip,” Blige told TMZ. “I understand my fans being upset by what they saw. But, if you’re a Mary fan, you have to know I would never allow an unfinished spot like the one you saw go out.”
As a side note, I saw Blige perform live at White Party in Palms Springs this past Saturday night and she KILLED it! She performed Chaka Khan’s “Ain’t Nobody,” “Just Fine,” “Family Affair,” “No More Drama,” and finished the set off with “Be Without You“. SO good.
Back to the BK issue, The Second City Network has put together a series of faux “leaked” unaired BK commericals that feature a Mary J. Blige look-a-like interupting several different scenes by saying, “What’s in the new crispy chicken wrap?!” I seriously die every time she says it. She then goes on to sing about the wrap, but Second City took the inappropriateness of the ads to another level with the scenes and the lyrics. It’s totally something SNL would do, being that it’s so funny but so wrong at the same time. Check it out below.
