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.
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!
