Once again, Jimmy Fallon has proven NBC execs right with their decision to bestow The Tonight Show chair upon him. The 40-year-old late night host consistently entertains with his charming skits and antics.
In honor of The Tonight Show returning to Los Angeles since Jay Leno left, Fallon parodies one of the most beloved and memorable theme songs of the 90s- The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air. With the aid of DJ Jazzy Jeff and Alfonso Ribeiro, Jimmy films a bang-on recreation. Definitely watch it out below, especially if you’re a fan of Ribeiro doing his signature Carlton dance.
It’s exactly what it sounds like. Four minutes of Macaulay Culkin eating a slice of pizza for your viewing pleasure. It’s actually not as indulgent as it sounds. The video is an homage SLASH spoof of a 1981 short film shot by Danish filmmaker Jorgen Leth of Andy Warhol eating a burger. Not just any burger, but a Burger King Whopper. Fancy!
If you have nine minutes to waste, check out both vids below. This is your last warning. You’ll never get those precious minutes back. However, the last few moments of both clips where the Home Alone star and the pop art leader speak are kinda hilarious.
This year marks the tenth anniversary of the release of Love Actually. Though numerous attempts around the world have been filmed to recreate the special magic found in the original including Garry Marshall’s Valentine’s Day and New Years Eve, none have succeeded.
Naturally, when I read Love Actually 2, I was instantly intrigued and excited. Sadly though, it turned out to be just a fan-made trailer parody. With that being said, it’s an excellent one at that. This fanboy or fangirl masterfully compiles footage from the cast’s post-Actually work into a storyline, albeit far-fetched, but a storyline nonetheless.
It’s not easy incorporating scenes from Bad Santa, The Walking Dead, Game of Thrones, Harry Potter, Taken, The King’s Speech, Mammia Mia, Mad Men, The Hobbit and more to craft a worthy sequel to Love Actually. Check out the wonderfully ridiculous clip below.
You know what I’m thankful for? Todrick Hall, that’s what. The American Idol alum consistently delivers highly-entertaining parodies and spoofs. His ability to put a new (often times ghetto) spin on classic tales is outstanding. This time around he strays from his usual inspirations (Disney films) and targets a classic holiday tale. Hall puts some Gangsta HollyHood flava on How the Grinch Stole Christmas.
While I’m not a huge fan of the Dr. Seuss story, I thoroughly enjoyed How The Grinch Stole Crenshaw. What can I say, I love me a ratchet fairy tale. Todrick released his latest exclusively on WTF (WhatTheFunny.com). It’s Marlon Wayans’ answer to Funny or Die. Check out the clip below.
Even if you didn’t watch Kanye West’s much-reviled “Bound 2” music video featuring Kim Kardashian, you’ll appreciate this. While filming his new film The Interview, Seth Rogen called upon James Franco to reenact the now-infamous video, shot for shot. From simulating sex on a motorcycle to passionately locking lips, Rogen and Franco engage in everything Kimye does. It’s definitely a must-see. Check it out below.
I’m sure you’ve all read about disgraced Toronto Mayor Rob Ford by now. If you haven’t, the controversial political leader’s story is brought to life in a new biopic. The film details his battles with alcohol, drugs, and the city he was elected to run. So sit back and enjoy this rip-roaring comedy that critics are calling “Hilarious and entertaining!”
Playing Ford is none other than Chris Farley. Before you do a Google search, the late actor hasn’t risen from the dead. Instead, this hilarious faux trailer consists of spliced footage from Farley’s films including Tommy Boy, Black Sheep and more. No disrespect to Bobby Moynihan, but if Farley was still kicking around, he would’ve crushed playing Ford on SNL. Chris’ brother also agrees and tweeted a similar sentiment. Check out the clip below.
I’m sure by now you’ve seen Jean-Claude Van Damme’s video where he’s doing the splits between two trucks. The viral clip demonstrating the precision and directional stability of Volvo Dynamic Steering has amassed over 34 million views since debuting last week. With that kind of popularity, naturally spoofs were bound to follow.
Taking a break while filming 22 Jump Street, Channing Tatum filmed a parody of Van Damme’s signature splits. Instead of two massive trucks supporting his feet, he opts for two food carts being pushed by members of the movie’s crew. Obviously without the stability of Volvo’s technology, things go awry for Tatum. Without spoiling too much, last year’s People’s Sexiest Man Alive’s clip ends with him yelling a few expletives while holding his naughty bits. Check it out below.
“At over 346,000 square feet, there is no sense of direction. No silence. Bad Cell Service. It’s way too big.”
Amen to that. While not clearly as vast as outer space, if you’ve ever been to an Ikea store, you’re fully aware how practically impossible it is to find someone you’ve momentarily separated from. When you factor in shoddy cell service, good luck. I assumed crappy cell reception only existed at my local Ikea. After seeing this hilarious spoof, I can see not.
Watch Alex Viola and Daniel Hubbard try to reunite in this Gravity spoof. With difficult furniture names to pronounce, low cell battery and the feeling of loneliness, Alex is frantic to find her friend. Spoiler alert. There’s a happy ending. Well, to me it is. I love me some Swedish meatballs.
