Parodies

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.

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.

If Toy Story was a Thriller

Sure, BloodBlitz cheated by adding some blood and explosions, but for the most part their Toy Story gone evil trailer parody is made from actual footage from the classic Pixar franchise. Seriously, Babyface is the stuff of nightmares.

The Fascism of You’ve Got Mail

The Fascism of You’ve Got Mail

Nora Ephron’s 1998 film You’ve Got Mail is regarded as one of the best romantic comedies of the ’90s. But as Wisecrack points out, there’s more to the Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan flick than meets the eye, and it has more in common with Orwell’s 1984 than you’d think.
