It took me a while but I’ve finally got into Breaking Bad. After the first few episodes, I was literally kicking myself in the butt for not watching it prior. It’s amazing. First of all, I am absolutely in love with Aaron Paul who up until last night’s Emmy win was probably one of the most underrated actors in Hollywood. Paired with the incredible Bryan Cranston, this unlikely but dynamic on-screen duo is anything but mediocre.
The two have this unique chemistry that has me coming back for every episode. The love/hate relationship and tension between the two is intoxicating. So, it’s no wonder that someone decided that it would be funny to play off their kinship. In this hilarious video trailer parody, clips from the hit AMC series are intercut with the music and titles from the famous film, Brokeback Mountain. Not surprisingly, the two mesh quite and kind of make you wish that the two of them did have a little more chemistry besides the formula for the meth. Check out BreakBad Mountain below.
If there are still any doubters that believe PSY’s “Gangnam Style” isn’t a global phenomenon, here’s some hard proof. The Korean pop star has made the Guinness Book of World Records. What’s his record-breaking achievement? PSY’s highly-spoofed music video is now the “Most Liked Video on YouTube.”
“Having been the “have you seen this?!” video of the last two months across the web, it’s great to be able to award a record for this tremendously popular video. In years past it was unthinkable that something would be viewed a hundred million times, and now “Gangnam Style” has achieved more than twice this figure in just 3 months on YouTube. PSY – your certificate is waiting here at our office, come pick it up any time!” – Guinness World Records Community Manager, Dan Barrett
With over 2,141,758 likes as of press time, “Gangnam Style” shatters previous record holder LMFAO’s “Party Rock Anthem” with 1,574,963. Maybe that’s why LMFAO broke up ;) Other top YouTube liked videos include Justin Bieber’s “Baby” and Adele’s “Rolling In The Deep” with 1,327,147 and 1,245,641 likes respectively. Bieber shouldn’t feel too bad dropping to third place, his “Baby” clip still holds the record for most viewed video online with 780,476,653 views.
PSY (real name: Park Jae-Sang) not only has conquered YouTube, but also iTunes as well by being the first South Korean to top the iTunes charts. It’s literally everywhere you go these days. You’re probably tired of all the spoofs, but I thought I’d include one featuring navy boys in their white uniforms invisible horse dancing. Who doesn’t like seeing hot guys? From their barracks, on boats to bathroom urinals, these sexy seaman show off their “Gangnam Style”. Check it out below.
I had no idea how much I missed Drew Droege’s Chloe impersonations until I new one appeared earlier this week. His videos should really become a monthly thing. The actor’s random pop culture references and how he strings them together always crack me up. But as any fan knows, it’s all about Droege’s mispronunciations and dramatic pauses that take the proverbial cake. This time he takes “reading” and transforms it to “ray-a-ding“.
For his latest Chloe Sevigny spoof, he reveals he’s a huge bookworm to his burnt bone massage buddy, Kimbra of Gotye fame. Whether it’s dance pamphlets, vineyard maps or the literary masterpiece, Vanna Speaks, he always makes time for “ray-a-ding”. Other LOL moments in the video include a book club with Anna Wintour and LeVar Burton, and the magic that is turned ketchup and marinated feet courtesy of Paula Deen.
Well apparently September 4th was the day of the KAI KAI! If you don’t know what a Kai Kai is…well we’ll get to that in a second.
After the hugely successful gay anthem of 2012 “Let’s Have a Kiki” was released, everyone and their dog has done a cover or a parody of it. I myself am not really one for parodies but after I heard/saw these two I starting to rethink my position on them. The first is done by parody legend Lady Bunny who stars on RuPaul’s Drag U and is the founder of Wigstock.
The second, and my favorite parody probably ever features Drag Race star Willam and one of my absolutely all time FAVORITE queens Rhea Litre. Seriously, if you don’t know Rhea you need to get into it #aweyeah. I have no idea WHY she hasn’t cast on Drag Race yet but this bitch is TALENTED! The pairing of Willam and Rhea is pretty genius I must say. Also featured in this video is Chi Chi Larue and I BELIEVE Hector Xtravaganza…I’m almost 100% certain. Its incredible and definitely my favourite parody of the song.
BUT WHAT IS A KAI KAI you’re still asking…well I’ll let the videos show you. ENJOY!
“Gangnam Style” is the gift that keeps giving. Since first sharing my obsession with the K-pop track a few weeks ago, my love has only grown and so has the world apparently. Mashups, parodies, flash mobs are popping, or should I say k-popping, all over the place. You could spend hours, if not days, literally going through all of them.
Thankfully, What’s Trending has taken on the arduous task and handpicked the most notable homages to Psy’s infectious track. From Nelly Furtado’s live performance, to multiple dance routines, to a unique guitar cover and everything in between, What’s Trending’s mashup perfectly illustrates the phenomenon that has taken over the world.
In addition to the Ultimate Gangnam Style Mashup, I’ve included two others featuring Nicki Minaj and Jennifer Lopez. The first one features J. Lo’s hit, “Dance Again” and the result is pure awesomeness. It’s insane how well they fit perfectly together. The next one is a video mashup of Minaj’s “Starships” music video with Psy’s clip. If I didn’t know any better, I would say they’re the sister/brother from another mother. They’re both a little cray cray. Check out all the “Gangnam” goodies below.
A bunch of girls living under one roof often leads to plenty of drama. Just watch an episode of America’s Next Top Model to witness that. Can you imagine if the girls were all bad asses? Well, wonder no more. Comediva filmed a parody inspired by Oxygen’s Bad Girls Club and puts some of entertainment’s most popular female heroines in that predicament.
Titled, BAMF Girls Club, the video depicts Hermione Granger (Harry Potter), Katniss Everdeen (The Hunger Games), Lisabeth Salander (The Girl With A Dragon Tattoo), Buffy Summers (Buffy The Vampire Slayer), Michonne (The Walking Dead) and Bella Swan (Twilight) all living in the same house. Instead of borrowing each other’s makeup, I’m sure these ladies will be trading stakes, bows and arrows and other weapons instead. No fashion montages here.
It’s not the most hilarious video ever, but I thought it was perfect viewing for a lazy Sunday morning. I love the nods to each heroine’s respective movie. From Hermoine living underneath a staircase to Katniss hiding out in a tree, all movie references are fair game. Check out the first episode below.
Recently, Owl City and Carly Rae Jepsen released their music video for their duet song, “Good Time“. In that video, Carly & Owl City go camping with friends and as the lyrics suggest, “It’s always a good time”. That being said, in this new College Humor parody, they focus on the reality of some of the negative aspects of camping and sing, “Camping’s Not A Good Time” instead.
From mosquitoes to fire-building difficulties to washroom woes. At one part, the Owl City imposter sings, “Shoes soaked and of course they’re my only pair, what a f*cking nightmare.” Seriously, the lyrics are brilliant and you must watch this summer anthem for the not-so-great outdoors.
I’m sure you’ve either watched or at the very least heard of HBO‘s new Emmy-Nominated series called ‘Girls‘ by now. It’s one of those shows that people seem to either love or hate, but I definitely love the writing.
Now the trailer for a faux-series called ‘Boys‘ has just come out, poking fun at the humor and awkward situations that are prevelant in the actual ‘Girls’ series. In the trailer, the boys reside in Los Angeles and try to get by. As a joke, the trailer says that it stars some of the offspring of celebrities, including Daniel Craig’s son Craig Craig. In one hilarious situation during trailer, one of the guys is on a date with a girl and says, “Here’s my resume.” She responds, “This is just a photo of David Beckham.” Then they start passionately making out. In another awkward scene, one naked guy asks his roommate which Instragram filter makes his penis look biggest. LOL.
Enjoy the video below – it’s quite entertaining.
