Awesome Parodies

Hamildolph The Red-Nosed Reindeer

Hamildolph The Red-Nosed Reindeer

The talented vocalists of Eclipse 6 put together this great holiday-themed parody of Hamilton which recasts the part of Alexander Hamilton with a similarly brilliant outsider who will someday guide Santa’s sleigh. This story has a much happier ending too. (Thanks, Rob!)

Dune Bad Lip Reading

Dune Bad Lip Reading

With terminology like Bene Gesserit, Gom Jabbar, and Kwisatz Haderach, the dialogue in Dune already sounds a bit like gibberish. But that didn’t stop Bad Lip Reading from putting their comedic spin on Denis Villeneuve’s Dune. Be sure to check out the full music video for Heaven Drips.

A Guy Who Is About to Die in Space

A Guy Who Is About to Die in Space

You know those scenes in sci-fi movies where a crew member records gradually more desperate video messages to their personal log? Alasdair Beckett-King pokes fun at the cliche, which usually starts with some cheerful observations and ends with the character freaking out for their final message.

Sand Planet

Sand Planet

(PG-13: Language) A couple of days ago, in a galaxy not very far away, an enthusiastic young man and his apathetic uncle went shopping for droids on a hot and boring desert planet. Joel Haver is joined by guest Justin Roiland to bring back this deleted scene from Star Wars: A New Hope.

The Rebels

While aboard a spaceship, its occupants provide a tour of its transporter to a couple of visitors, but the aliens’ stupidity results in an unexpected end to their plans. Another hilarious animated parody by Joel Haver and friends. Part of The Sci-Fi Series.

Every Haunted House Movie

Every Haunted House Movie

In this parody sketch, comedian Alasdair Beckett-King takes a jab at horror movies that feature haunted houses. All the common tropes are on display here, from the couple who moved there to get away from their personal tragedy, to the abusive husband, to the deer they hit on the way.

Straight Outta Bavaria

Straight Outta Bavaria

There I Ruined It transform’s N.W.A.’s West Coast rap anthem into a West German polka anthem, trading blunts for beers, Los Angeles for lederhosen, AKs for accordions, and adding an unwanted oompah band sound to Straight Outta Compton.

How to Make a Netflix Documentary About Anything

From cooking to crime, Netflix is filled with intriguing documentaries about all kinds of subjects. Paul E.T. shows how you can easily make a Netflix-style documentary about any subject with just a few basic photography tools, some stock footage, and basic editing skills.

Thieves at the Gym

Thieves at the Gym

If you’re going to commit crimes, you probably should be in pretty good shape. This silly video from Vlog Creations imagines how burglars, purse-snatchers, bank robbers, and other thieves might get their reps in at the gym. The staircase sneak was our favorite exercise.

My Little Occult Book Club
Buy

You’ve seen the memes, now see the whole collection of Steven Rhodes’ parody children’s book covers.

How Soon Is the Jungle?

How Soon Is the Jungle?

If Morrissey sang the Guns ‘N Roses track Welcome to the Jungle and Johnny Marr played the guitar part like he did on How Soon Is Now? it might sound something like this cover by by Good Future. If you enjoyed that, check out his version of Justin Bieber’s “Peaches” by The Strokes.

Guy Who Is About to Die in a Movie

Guy Who Is About to Die in a Movie

Every once in a while, a movie will surprise us with who they kill off. But more often than not, it’s some bit player who you’ve never seen before, wandering around alone and dreaming about their future. Alasdair Beckett-King pokes fun at this common cliché in movie scenes, made famous by Star Trek’s Redshirts.

Every Tech CEO

Every Tech CEO

Over the years, we’ve seen way too many self-important product videos from companies like Apple and Microsoft. Joma Tech pokes fun at tech CEO swagger by hyping something as mundane as a set of overpriced window blinds. The back half of the video is a little treat for anyone who has ever worked for a tech startup.

Your Crime Days Are Over

Your Crime Days Are Over

It’s a common trope in video games and action movies – the protagonist drops in on the big bad guy in their lair and tells them their days of perpetrating misdeeds are over. But in Joel Haver’s amusing take on this cliché, it turns out not all is what it seems between the crime lord and his companion.

Goofy Joker

Goofy Joker

The scene in Joker where the Clown Prince of Crime appears on Murray Franklin’s talk show was seriously intense. Animator anima leal decided to lighten the mood by replacing Joaquin Phoenix with Goofy and Robert De Niro with Winnie the Pooh. Voices by Brock Baker.

CLAWS

CLAWS

Hopefully, you had a happy and relaxing 4th of July, and your beach vacation wasn’t interrupted by any terrifying monsters from the ocean. While a great white shark would definitely be bad, this great black kitty could really ruin your holiday.

Transition Contact Lenses

Transition Contact Lenses

We like prescription sunglasses that automatically change from light to dark depending on the amount of sunlight. But this parody commercial from John Milhiser shows us just how wrong things could go if they put the same technology into contact lenses.

Returning to an RPG

Returning to an RPG

Joel Haver makes fun of what it’s like to pick up and start playing a role-playing video game that you haven’t played in a while. His observations on the mundane side quests and the NPCs are especially on-the-nose. Along the way, he worked in a few references to his previous game parody videos.

Best-selling Songs 2010 to 14,000 BC

Did you know that Ed Sheeran’s Shape of You was the best-selling song of the 2010s? Nope? Us either. Comedians Adrian Gray and Archie Henderson presents what starts out as a serious reverse-chronological listing but quickly descends into madness as things take a wrong turn between Cher and The Bee Gees.

Memes on the Radio

Memes on the Radio

What did people do to share memes before the Internet? Heck, go back further to a time when the main method of broadcast communication was radio. Comedian Alasdair Beckett-King envisions what it might have been like if the BBC had to describe memes over the airwaves back in the 1940s.

How to Make Vintage Photos

How to Make Vintage Photos

(PG-13: Language) Do you want to know how to make your photographs look old-timey? Well, Aussie comedian Sam Campbell’s tutorial probably won’t help you much – especially because it requires the worst piece of 1990s photo editing software we’ve ever seen.

More Dark Disney Origin Stories

More Dark Disney Origin Stories

With Cruella offering a dark origin story for the 101 Dalmatians villainess, Disney might give us more of the same.

How Nintendo Makes Game Sounds

How Nintendo Makes Game Sounds

Beyond the It’sa Me Mario!, you have to admit that the sounds in Nintendo’s 1st-party games are often pretty silly. Comedian Gus Johnson takes a stab at envisioning exactly how they came up with all those sounds in the recording studio.
