Parodies

Run Tom Run

Run Tom Run

Filmmaker Stephen Vitale and actor Miles Fisher poke fun at the political landscape by declaring none other than Tom Cruise as a candidate for the 2020 US Presidential election. He certainly has more experience saving the world than most people, so why not? Now about that scientology thing…

Guys with a YETI

Guys with a YETI

YETI coolers can really come in handy when you need to keep drinks and food cold in the outdoors. But You Betcha’s comedy sketch reminds us that the same can be achieved for much less money, and their products are more of a bro status symbol than anything else.

Threat Level: Midnight (Trailer)

Threat Level: Midnight (Trailer)

Fans of The Office will be familiar with Michael Scott’s Magnum Opus, Threat Level: Midnight. As a tribute to the cheesy, low-budget film within a show, Rajveer Dhanak managed to cut together a trailer for a much slicker version, inspired by the Mission Impossible movies.

The Earth Is a Pyramid

The Earth Is a Pyramid

Retro parody specialists Squirrel Monkey simultaneously poke fun at flat-earthers and other conspiracy theorists with this hilarious fake VHS tape that postulates that we live on a pyramid-shaped planet that was created by aliens, and operated by a secret Apple HQ at the top of the structure.

How to Daft Punk

How to Daft Punk

“Generally, Daft Punk likes to have A-Major good time.” Do you want to make music just like the robots? Then watch Imaginary Ambition’s lighthearted video tutorial, and if you work harder, better, faster, stronger, and you’re doing it right, you might just get lucky!

Us Cats

Us Cats

We’ve seen the trailer for the Cats movie musical, and the weird CGI cats just creep us out. Frankly, we think Ian Abramson’s version works much better, accompanied by Luniz’s I Got 5 on It, notable for its appearance in the trailer for Jordan Peele’s horror flick Us.

The Geometry of Emotion

The Geometry of Emotion

ClickHole presents a hilarious spoof of some of the numerous film essay videos we’ve featured here on The Awesomer. In this clip, the narrator explains how acclaimed director Paul Thomas Anderson uses a specific shape to set a mood. There Will Be Hot Dogs.

The Universe in 4 Minutes

The Universe in 4 Minutes

Derek Neutron and Barbara Proton… Usually they engage in a 3-way with Carmen Electron. Exurb1a presents a brief “educational” video, skimming over how the universe works, from tiny subatomic particles to entire galaxies. At least it’s better than this explanation.

Hopper, P.I.

Hopper, P.I.

Stranger Things is jam-packed with nods to ’80s pop culture, so it only makes sense that its characters could be dropped straight into an ’80s TV series. Video editor Eddie Spuhghetti of Here Lies did an excellent job dropping Sheriff Hopper into the opening credits of Magnum P.I.

The Simpsons Russian Opening

The Simpsons Russian Opening

We’re pretty sure that Fox won’t be running Lazy Square’s unofficial opening for The Simpsons any time soon. The incredibly somber couch gag starts out with Bart robbing a kid of his phone and skateboard, and it just gets darker and more oppressive from there.

Making Nintendo Sounds

Making Nintendo 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 his best stab at envisioning exactly how they come up with those sounds in the recording studio.

The Onion Reviews Toy Story 4

The Onion Reviews Toy Story 4

The Onion’s film critic Peter K. Rosenthal takes a look at the latest Toy Story film, comparing the CGI animated tale with its source material, a traditional German fairy tale “die Reise der Spielzeuge,” written in 1793. Needless to say that Disney Pixar’s version comes off as a little watered down.

Atlas Robot Fights Back

Atlas Robot Fights Back

Mocking footage of Boston Dynamics taunting its Atlas robot, The VFX artists at Corridor envision a robotics company that subjects its humanoid robots to all kinds of indignities during testing. While Bosstown Dynamics’ robot has a high threshold for humiliation, he eventually snaps. Behind the scenes video here.

How Endgame Should’ve Ended

How Endgame Should’ve Ended

How It Should Have Ended takes on the mega blockbuster Avengers: Endgame, pointing out both how Thanos could have easily beaten the Avengers, and how the heroes could have comfortably iced the Mad Titan. And of course, why the ending was unnecessary.

Con Air Honest Trailer

Con Air Honest Trailer

Con Air is one of the best/worst movies ever made. It’s filled with great actors working well beneath their usual paygrade, chewing scenery, spitting out cheesy dialog, and blowing stuff up. Screen Junkies offers their take on the film that asked us in no uncertain terms to put the bunny back in the box.

The Lonely Island: Oakland Nights

The Lonely Island: Oakland Nights

“I’m a pro when I bone but I do it pro-bono.” Oakland A’s fans The Lonely Island pay tribute to baseball players (and steroid abusers) Jose Canseco and Mark McGwire, and their after-dark antics with the ladies. From the Netflix special The Unauthorized Bash Brothers Experience.

Emilia Clarke Recreates Stock Photos

Emilia Clarke Recreates Stock Photos

About a year before all hell broke loose on the penultimate episode of Game of Thrones, Vanity Fair got the Mother of Dragons and Breaker of Chains to stop by the studio to truly stretch her acting muscle, by acting out the poses and expressions in cheesy stock photos.

If Zootopia Was an Anime

If Zootopia Was an Anime

(PG-13) Mike Inel pokes fun at both Disney and anime style, re-animating the classic scene from Zootopia with the animal naturalist club with slightly more humanoid forms. Side-by-side comparison here.

Every “Hot Ones” Episode

Every “Hot Ones” Episode

“Do people drink milk? Am I allowed to do that?” We’ve watched and featured more than our share of “Hot Ones” episodes here at The Awesomer, and while each interview is different, there are a few things which are consistent throughout the series. Scott Cramer’s parody sums it up quite well.

Avangers: Endgame Trailer Spoof

Avangers: Endgame Trailer Spoof

Black Widow hopes guns will help in the end times, Hawkeye is sensitive about his new haircut and Captain America knows the real reason why their plan to defeat Thanos will work in ArtSpear Entertainment’s parody of the Avengers: Endgame trailers.

Sesame Street x HBO

Sesame Street x HBO

Sesame Street asks us to be more respectful of one another with a duo of amusing parodies of HBO dramas, featuring the actual stars and sets from the shows. While the Game of Thrones one has gone viral, we think the Westworld one is even better in our opinion.

30 for 30: The Karate Kid

30 for 30: The Karate Kid

“He was the best around. Nothing’s ever gonna keep him down.” To promote its second season, the YouTube Premium series Cobra Kai enlisted the help of ESPN and created this high quality parody of the sports networks’ 30 for 30 series for a recap of The Karate Kid.

Streaming Microsoft Excel

Streaming Microsoft Excel

Maybe we’re too old, but we’ve never really quite understood the fascination with watching gamers stream. But gaming isn’t the only thing you can broadcast from your desktop to build a fanbase, as spreadsheet guru Makro shows off in this hilarious parody.

New HBO Shows

New HBO Shows

Game of Thrones is coming to an end, and HBO will need some new programming to help pick up the slack after it’s gone. SNL decided to give the network some ideas for spin-offs, with a little help from guest host Kit Harington. We’d so tune in for that Arya show.

Honest Tim Burton Movie Trailer

Honest Tim Burton Movie Trailer

“Journey into the mind of a director who’s constantly journeying into his own mind.” Screen Junkies takes on the staples of a Tim Burton movie, such as big spooky mansions, fat and rich villains, pale characters looking for acceptance, revenge or both, and much more.

How to Clickbait

How to Clickbait

We really do our best to avoid hyperbole and overblown clickbait content around here. But if you’re a content creator and are desperate for eyeballs no matter the cost, check out Materialisimo’s brief tutorial on “guaranteed” YouTube success.

Aquaman Honest Trailer

Aquaman Honest Trailer

Mix Black Panther, a ton of marine life and a sprinkling of Magic Mike and you get the new Aquaman. Screen Junkies pokes fun at the hit movie’s celebration of excess – excessive locations, excessive battles, excessive screaming and more more more.

Samsung Galaxy Fold: ’90s Edition

Samsung Galaxy Fold: ’90s Edition

There’s much buzz these days about the upcoming barrage of foldable smartphones, like the Samsung Galaxy Fold and Huawei Mate X. Squirrel Monkey’s latest retro tech video imagines what these phones might have been like some 20 years ago.

How to Use Reddit

How to Use Reddit

The Field Guide to Dumb Birds

How Spider-Verse Should’ve Ended

How It Should Have Ended points out the plot holes and Kingpin’s dumb mistakes in Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse. Seriously, how does nobody know that Kingpin dies to bullets?! Also, Batman gets jealous that the Spideys got to hang out.
