THE BEST Parodies

Burgerpunk 2077

Burgerpunk 2077

Animator omozoc takes a break from stop-motion cooking to poke fun at Cyberpunk 2077 with a fun little sequence that starts out with player customization, and then takes us on a ride into a world dominated by a mega-corporation who controls all of the food supplies.

(I Can’t Get No) Ragtime Satisfaction

(I Can’t Get No) Ragtime Satisfaction

There I Ruined It reimagines another song as the worst version of itself. This time, they converted The Rolling Stones’ classic Satisfaction into a Scott Joplin-esque ragtime ditty that absolutely nobody asked for. Though we actually enjoyed it more than Cat Power’s version.

The Nothing (Trailer)

The Nothing (Trailer)

As comedies go, Seinfeld had its share of dark humor and crazy people. Editor Max Gold took the opportunity to amp up the darkness level to 11, transforming the series into a unsettling horror flick about nothing… and creepy clowns.

Singing Random Internet Drama

Singing Random Internet Drama

Musician Lubalin stumbled onto Internet gold with his hilarious vocalization of two people going at it in a late night chat about a rental property. He’s since done a second, even funnier episode about Helen, a woman who’s really pissed about her casserole recipe being stolen.

A Podcast About Nothing

A Podcast About Nothing

While there are certainly some great podcasts out there, the unfiltered, unedited nature of most of them means that there can be a bit of rambling too. UK songwriter and producer Jonathan Ogden totally nailed what it’s like when a discussion ensues about basically nothing.

Deck the Halls with Ozzy Osbourne

Deck the Halls with Ozzy Osbourne

Musician Aaron Gage likes a little sprinkle of heavy metal atop his holiday egg nog. To celebrate the season rock and roll style, he performed the Black Sabbath classic War Pigs, but swapped in the lyrics the Christmas classic Deck the Halls.

Dancing with Myself: Christmas Edition

Dancing with Myself: Christmas Edition

There I Ruined It wishes us a happy holiday season with a Christmas version of Billy Idol’s 1985 hit track Dancing with Myself sprinkled with a cheerful dash of Jingle Bells. It’s perfect in every way, except we would have called it “Dancing with My Elf.”

My Little Occult Book Club

My Little Occult Book Club

You’ve seen the memes, now see the whole collection of Steven Rhodes’ parody children’s book covers. My Little Occult Book Club features the funniest of his paranormal fakes – including Caring for Your Hell Hound and Necromancy for Beginners – characterized by deviously cheerful illustrations with a 1970s vibe.

Every Breath You Tonk

Every Breath You Tonk

There I Ruined It continues to demolish classic tracks by making them much, much worse. This time, the masochistic musician took the perfectly fine Police track Every Breath You Take, and converted into a old-timey honky tonk song. Terrible.

Raising Baby Yoda

Raising Baby Yoda

It might seem like zooming around the galaxy with Baby Yoda is all action and adventure. The Mandalorian’s Din Djarin explains how much work it is to take care of a 50-year-old poop machine in this clip that we’re sure many parents can relate to. A fun and charming fan parody from the guys at The Warp Zone.

Russian Cyberpunk Farm

Russian Cyberpunk Farm

Sergey Vasiliev decided he had enough of the old “in Soviet Russia” trope which represents his country as technologically backward. Incorporating some clever visual effects, his brilliant short film imagines a Russian farm where everything is running on the latest tech. The footage reminds us of the work of Simon Stålenhag.

Goodfellas Sound Guy

Goodfellas Sound Guy

Kevin James‘ nosy audio guy is back, and this time working he’s on the set of Martin Scorsese’s masterpiece Goodfellas. As James attempts to capture a clean recording, he gets into it with Joe Pesci’s hot-under-the-collar Tommy DeVito, and things go off the rails.

Shape of You: Drunken Pub Edition

Shape of You: Drunken Pub Edition

Oy! Oy! I’m in love with the shape of you! There I Ruined It destroys yet another popular song. This time, they took Ed Sheeran’s pop hit Shape of You and imagined what it might sound like sung by a drunk guy during open mic night. We know chicks would still dig Ed even if he sounded like this.

Green Child O’ Mine

Green Child O’ Mine

Novelty band The Merkins celebrate the second season of The Mandalorian with a parody of the Guns N’ Roses track Sweet Child O’ Mine, with the lyrics rewritten to be about everyone’s favorite 50-year-old child, Baby Yoda. The lead vocals are spot-on thanks to special guest singer Alvi Robinson of the rock band The L.A. Maybe.

Pet This F*cking Puppy

Pet This F*cking Puppy

Are you feeling stressed out? Perhaps you could use a little light reading material to help ease your tension. This parody kid’s book is filled with sensory pleasures like the fur on a soft puppy dog, a cozy warm blanket… and swearing like a truck driver.

Data: A Sitcom for Androids

Data: A Sitcom for Androids

We always thought Star Trek: The Next Generation had a good sense of humor, but TrainDozer thought one character stood out for his comedic chops. So he got to editing together footage from the series and blooper reels and added a laugh track. The result is a surprisingly solid sitcom.

If Michael Bay Directed UP

If Michael Bay Directed UP

By filling all the balloons with explosive hydrogen, then adding extraneous edits, lens flare, and a power ballad, YouTuber Mr.Stratman7 managed to turn the Pixar classic UP into your typically overdone Michael Bay popcorn flick. The only thing it’s missing is some giant robots to knock things over.

Kevin James: Nature Planet

Kevin James: Nature Planet

Kevin James stars as an oversize Ewok fighting his way back from the brink of extinction in “Nature Planet.” While he’s no Sir David Attenborough, you’ve gotta hand it to “Sir” Adam Sandler for his narration work on this spot-on nature show parody.

Mary Tyler Mask Up

Mary Tyler Mask Up

Who can turn the world on with her smile? Even behind a mask, Mary Tyler Moore certainly could have. Actor and comedian P.M. Artin reminds us to keep our faces covered in public with this spot-on parody of the opening credits of MTM’s classic 1970s sitcom.

Oompah’s Paradise

Oompah’s Paradise

For 2020, a toned-down version of the annual Oktoberfest celebration has kicked off in Germany. To celebrate, There I Ruined It recorded a new version of Coolio and L.V.’s Gangsta’s Paradise, with a fresh new oompah band sound.

This Sh*t Is Bananab

This Sh*t Is Bananab

The 2005 Gwen Stefani track Hollaback Girl repeatedly proclaims that “this sh*t is bananas,” then proceeds to spell it out letter-by-letter. But what if Gwen’s backup singer couldn’t spell? Archie Henderson aka Jazz Emu made us bust a gut laughing with his impression of just that.

Floaty Holograms Are Stupid

Floaty Holograms Are Stupid

Science fiction and futuristic movies love to envision a world where projecting images into the air is commonplace. Danger Farm demonstrates how those floating holographic images may look cool, but they aren’t exactly the most practical or reliable way to look at things.

Terrence Malick’s Zoolander

Terrence Malick’s Zoolander

Filmmaker Terrence Malick is known for creating stylish, cerebral cinema like The Tree of Life and The Thin Red Line. The guys from Slate brilliantly recut footage from Ben Stiller’s notably more silly Zoolander and turn it into one of the acclaimed writer/director’s highbrow art house films.

Basically a Tom Scott Video

Basically a Tom Scott Video

We’ve featured a number of Tom Scott’s videos over the years, and for the most part we’ve found them to be fascinating and informative. On the other hand, this parody video from comedian Matt Colbo has nothing useful to show or tell us at all.

Bad Bluegrass

Bad Bluegrass

YouTube channel There I Ruined It is in the business of messing with popular songs and, well, ruining them by covering them in a totally inappropriate style. Their bluegrass reworking of Michael Jackson’s “Bad” is so wrong that it’s right. We also chuckled at their swing version of Nirvana’s “Come As You Are.”

How People Move in Video Games

How People Move in Video Games

As good as the graphics have gotten in video games, the character animations aren’t always as convincing. In this hilarious video from Komazawa Isolation, the protagonist walks around Tokyo’s Shibuya district just like they do in third-person action games like Grand Theft Auto. The spot-on camera work seals the deal.
