Have you seen those Dove “Real Beauty Sketches” commercials? It’s where women sit down with a forensics artist behind a white sheet to describe themselves. Then another person comes in to give their description of said person. The whole point of the campaign is to show women they’re more beautiful than they think. Regardless of gender, we truly our own worst critics.
A few parodies of the Dove creative have surfaced online. A few weeks ago, one showed men having an inflated opinion of themselves. They thought they looked like movie stars like Brad Pitt and George Clooney, but in reality they weren’t. As funny as that sketch was, this new #Balls parody is even funnier.
Only 4% of men around the world know how beautiful their balls are, according to the video description. Watch men discover that their soggy freckled balls are actually beautiful visions to behold. Check out the new parody below, along with the original Dove commercial.
What if you mixed Blossom’s characters and their signature hats with Girls‘ hipster vibe? You get a cute parody starring Jenna Von Oy. If you recall, Von Oy played the 90s sitcom’s titular character’s BFF, Six. It’s good to know that she’s working still, albeit in parody videos. Perhaps she can stage a real-life reunion on either of her former co-stars’ new shows- The Big Bang Theory (Mayim Bialik) and Melissa & Joey (Joey Lawrence).
In the clip, Jenna plays Six once again but this time channeling Shoshanna (Zosia Mamet) from the HBO comedy. Stepping in to play Blossom is Kerri Doherty who impeccably takes on Hannah’s (Lena Dunham) voice and mannerisms. The 90s BFFs discuss the perils of STDs, secret babies and flowery hat collections. The best part of the clip is when Six tells Blossom that she had an affair with Blossom’s dad and that they have a child named Seven. LOL.
I don’t typically like writing about Kim Kardashian (I leave that to the other Homorazzi cast), but I just had to share this one. It features Beyonce going a little cray cray upon hearing about Kim Kardashian and Kanye West’s pregnancy. As you would expect, she’s not looking forward to Kimye’s offspring potentially outshining her precious Blue Ivy. Remember when she tried to get her kid’s name trademarked? LOL.
Obviously, it’s not Bey herself but someone pretending to be her. I probably should say embodying her instead of pretending. Girlfriend does a spectacular job of mimicking her talking voice and singing inflections. Love the shout out to sister Solange Knowles while holding a bag of Cheetos. Check out the clip below.
GIRL OH SHIT LOOK THE MAYANS ARE HERE!
I CANNOT! Let me set this up for you, I’m not a big fan of parodies. Half the time they are awful and the other half of the time they are REALLY awful. It’s only rarely do you get a really clever parody.
Peppermint’s parody of Azealia Banks’ “212” is probably my favorite parody of the entire year, and how fitting that it comes at the end of the year right? Peppermint is NYC drag ROYALTY and in this parody she pretty much hits all the hilarious cliche’s of the end of the year, but it’s not until 1:54 min mark when she kicks in that HILARIOUS CHORUS that had me SCREAMING at the top of my lungs! It is SO FUNNY! Trust you have to watch it, Peppermint is definitely one to watch for the next year if she keep pumping out stuff like this.
Take a look at the video, trust me you won’t be disappointed!
Hello America. It’s recently come to my attention that Drew Droege has never done a Christmas video before. Shame on him. Tsk, tsk. His Chloe Sevigny impersonations have covered the wonders of Summer, Hallowe’en, Memorial Day and even Valentine’s Day. Thankfully, he’s back and wearing that layered blond wig once again. This time he’s sharing his thoughts about the holiday season. Let the Yuletide fun begin.
For his festive new video, Chloe rocks sheer blouses, animal prints, plenty of accessories and floral pants to reveal what her true love has given during the 12 days of Chrisss-mas. I just love her hilarious mispronunciations. Her gifts include a crib of childish animals, murder of crows, a Louis Vuitton bindlestick, Mamie Gummer (The WB’s Emily Owens, M.D.) and even a crisp slap. Chloe’s love is certainly very generous. Looks like Chloe has been more nice than naughty this year.
Watch the video below and see what else she scored from her true love. Personally, I want what she got on Day 4. Ooh na na.
It was bound to happen and now it’s officially coming our way. The team that brought 2006 parody flick Date Movie is developing another comedic film, this time poking fun at The Hunger Games. Hilariously titled, The Starving Games, Jason Friedberg and Aaron Seltzer will make jabs at Katniss Everdeen and company, but will also mock(ingjay LOL) The Avengers, Sherlock Holmes and Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part II. Production on the parody film will reportedly kick off this week in New Orleans.
As with the big screen adaptation of Suzanne Collins’ novel, the key to the film is finding the perfect person to portray the heroine lead. Jennifer Lawrence beat out a slew of actresses to play the part including Emma Roberts, Emily Browning, Shailene Woodley, Hailee Steinfeld and others. The Starving Games has found its own version of Katniss, aptly called Kantmiss Evershot. Find out who’s playing her and the spoof version of Liam Hemsworth’s Gale Hawthorne 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.
So, I have to admit that I’m one of the “bad” gays who think that there’s such a thing as TOO gay, and honey boo boo child, Wil Heuser of Big Brother is among the many of the mo’s on TV right now who send shivers down my spine. Well-known for not being very eventful in the house this year- Season 14 of the hit reality show- Wil has been a frequently googled evicted houseguest for his many impersonation and comedic YouTube vids. Admittedly I’ve never watched any of his older stuff and likely wouldn’t have been searching up his new stuff until a friend of mine stumbled across this hilarious spoof released soon after his eviction in late August that mocks his fellow housemates for their idiosyncrasies and straight up insanities.
The reason this is so funny is not so much for the “brilliant and super insightful writing” but rather that he’s the earliest to post a first-person account of both watching the show now that he’s on the outs and being in there himself- you’ll see more than a couple jokes you’ve been makin’ for years about this show, posted for all the world to see. If you’ve watched this show at all this season you’ll want to see this- particularly if you hated its production, un-aging host Julie Chen or any of the loud and borderline nuts inhabitants/contestants. That said, if you love them and the whole series you’ll still absolutely get a kick out of this as Wil pulls off the perfect Ian impression, blinks his way through all of Frank “greatest one liners” (put in quotation marks because I’d argue he’s one of the dumbest people ever to nearly win this thing) and fake tans the hell outta himself to show JoJo just how ridiculous she looked.
