Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you’ve undoubtedly heard about Guido Barilla’s anti-gay comments. The Barilla pasta brand chairman declared his company would never film an advertisement featuring a homosexual couple. He further added that if gays didn’t like it, they can eat another brand.
Between you and me, how many gays actually eat carbs? No big loss to most of us. Personally though, I love me some lasagna, penne, linguini, spaghetti etc… Who’s with me? A couple of days later, Guido made a half-assed mea culpa but the damage was already done. Don’t mess with the gay mafia.
In the wake of pasta-gate, a few companies including Bertolli pasta have spoken out, reminding their customers that they’ve always been gay-friendly and shared previous commercials featuring same-sex couples. Even a couple of fake brands have popped up poking fun at the situation. One of the best aired on The Conan Show. The ginger host introduced us to Pasta Tolernza di Napoli. Watch the cute parody featuring how gay and straight pasta can co-exist. I’ve also added a couple real commercials as well.
Earlier this month, I shared the viral video, “The Fox” from Bard Ylvisaker and Vegard Ylvisaker aka Ylvis. The Norwegian comedians asked the question, “what does the fox say?” Everyone knows a duck quacks, a dog barks and cows moo, but apparently, no one still knows about the fox. With it still being a mystery, it’s up to the Abercrombie and Fitch studs to figure it out.
Much like the actual video, A&F filmed theirs in the forest. In true form, their version is shot in black and white and features a bevy of shirtless hairless collegiate types. After watching both clips, I still don’t know what a fox says, but I now know how they dance ;) Check out the delightfully campy spoof below.
You might recognize Bryan Hawn and his juicy bubble butt from his Easy A parody. Perhaps, you saw him wrestling a hyena on Animal Planet’s Fatal Attractions. If you’ve never laid your eyes on him, prep yourself for an onslaught of hotness. The sexy fitness male model is back and sexier than ever.
Hawn tackles Miley Cyrus’ much-buzzed about “Wrecking Ball” music video. He struts around holding a sledgehammer while wearing extremely snug white underwear. Much like Miley, he goes to town on his tool while grinding his hips. It’s part Home Depot commercial, part workout vieo and part softcore porn. Check it out below.
When did HBO become the subject of every online spoof? First, yesterday’s College Humor clip and now this one.
Directed by Alberto Belli (any relation to Willam Belli???), this one shows a bunch of actors telling their loved ones about their latest acting gig. As they describe their respective scenes, their big break sounds more like a scene from a cheesy skin flick. Obviously hearing the plot, their friends and family are disgusted and saddened they’ve resorted to porn. When it’s revealed that it’s for an HBO sex scene, all parties rejoice. With 108 nominations, it’s not porn… it’s HBO. Right?
They are BACK!
Detox, Willam & Vicky the super popular super talented drag queen girl group (that’s a mouthful) are back and just in time! Coming off their 3rd parody “Silicone” (a parody of Robyn’s Dancing on my Own) the trio decide to take on the summer’s biggest hit… with a twist!
No doubt this year one of the biggest headline stealers was Amanda Bynes, and they mashed up her story with the biggest song of the year. Naturally it’s hysterical. I LOVE these three they really are super funny and incredibly talented. Check out “BLURRED BYNES” below!
When a tribe experiences population growth problems, the leader institutes a no more “samesies” rule. In layman’s terms, no more up the butt dude-on-dude action and muff diving for the ladies.
Obviously, this doesn’t go over very well with his flock. The only person on his side is the “black sheep” of the group who happens to engage in some animal loving. Despite, the opposition, the leader is steadfast in “people juice” being used for only “opposite” sexy times. That is… until a sexy new stud appears out of nowhere. Check out the clip below.
Todrick Hall has once again created a masterpiece. He’s truly outdone himself on this one. If you’ve been following the former American Idol hopeful, you know that he has a thing for fairy tales and Beyonce. Naturally, it was only a matter of time before he combined the two.
Cinderonce is his latest parody. He tells the classic Disney fairy tale using Beyonce tracks as the soundtrack. From “Halo” to “Love on Top” Prince Charming’s journey to find his princess is told through the lyrics of Bey.
One highlight occurs when Cinderlla’s fairy godmother, played by Shangela, appears to give her a beautiful ball gown. Naturally, “Freakum Dress” plays. Another favorite musical moment happens when Cinderella’s ratchet stepsisters try to fit their feet in the glass slipper to “Why Don’t You Love Me.” Absolutely brillballs.
Check his latest creation below. If you haven’t sampled his other work, be sure to click on the related links at the end of the post.
This year the Capital decided to go with a more urban approach and I’m glad they did because this is absolutely ghetto fabulous in all the right ways. Todrick Hall is back with another hilarious movie parody. This time he takes a stab (literally) at The Hunger Games.
He’s enlisted his fellow reality singing losers, Vonzell Solomon (American Idol 4) and Paige Thomas (X Factor 2) to put a ratchet spin on the popular movie franchise. The true star of the parody, however, is that chick who played the plus size Amanda Seyfried in Hall’s Mean Gurlz spoof. I don’t know her name, but every time she appears on screen, I just want to laugh.
The Hungry Games features some truly horrible fatalities including death by weaves, watermelon tossing, deadly ratchet nails and other stereotypes involving African Americans. Give it a watch below.
