“What is it going to take to kill Dom?.. Probably his blood pressure.” AOK envisions a day when the Fast and Furious franchise nears its 100th movie. But now that their drivers licenses have been revoked, our aging racers must take to the streets and perform death-defying stunts in mobility scooters.
THE BEST Parodies
“Manager Claudette moved with the quickness of a jungle cat… as she leapt into her burgundy Tercel to give chase.” With classic Daily Show style editing, the guys from BowserVids injected a trio of new employees into a news report about a robbery at an Arby’s with hilarious results.
We’ve all seen those ads for Masterclass, with their haughty explanations of skills to be taught by leaders in their respective fields. Jim Cameron is an expert too. But he’s not the guy who made Terminator or Avatar. Nope, he’s just Kathleen Cameron’s dad – and he knows the one right way to load a dishwasher.
If you missed out on the Tiger King craze, it’s never too late to watch. And if you still need convincing, perhaps Screen Junkies‘ take on the insane Netflix docuseries will push you over the edge. And if you’ve already seen it, welcome back to the Greater Wynnewood Exotic Animal Park.
The COVID-19 pandemic is nothing to laugh about, but that doesn’t mean should lose our sense of humor. Musicians Samuel Fu, Matthew Van Ness and Marin Drake, and lyricist Dana Jay Bein offer up a parody of “Bohemian Rhapsody” about self-isolating, washing your hands, and the other challenges of living in these trying times.
Comedian Henry Phillips pokes fun at cheesy TV dramas of the 1980s with his proposed web series “Highway Man,” a show about a lonely drifter who pops in on people in their moments of need, and basically has nothing useful to offer at all. The future episode synopses on his Patreon page sound thrilling!
With hoarding surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic, there’s been quite the run on toilet paper here in the U.S. While add-on bidet toilet seats are always an option, Mike of Useless Duck Company thinks he’s got a more thorough solution – though his approach might be just a little more painful. Kids, don’t try this at home.
If you’ve ever been involved in a student film – or any amateur film shoot, you’ll easily relate to Gus Johnson’s parody sketch. He perfectly captures the frustrations of the day, from the lack of direction, to the terrible production techniques, to the endless waiting around due to poor planning.
John Mulaney rounds out his Diner Lobster and Bodega Bathroom trilogy with another thing none of us should ever do – eat raw seafood at New York LaGuardia Airport, or for that matter, even fly out of the place. This time, Jake Gyllenhal and David Byrne come along and take that ride.
(Spoilers) Rian Johnson’s surprise hit mystery-comedy Knives Out offered a fun take on the whodunit formula, with its ample mix of quirky characters and plot twists. But that doesn’t mean it didn’t have its share of foibles… and Screen Junkies is here to point them all out as usual.
From 1917 to Joker to Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, the 2020 Academy Awards has some pretty solid contenders. But regardless of how good a movie might be, Screen Junkies is always ready to roast it. So without further ado, enjoy their very special Oscars edition of Honest Trailers.
“Some games even require a Pentium microprocessor!” Google’s Stadia streaming game service hasn’t exactly been off to a great start. But that didn’t stop Squirrel Monkey from envisioning how much worse it would have been had it been released sometime around 1995, cranking out 320×240 graphics at 6 fps.
(PG-13: Language) CollegeHumor gathered up all of the clips from Pete Holmes‘ classic Batman parody series, and smooshed them together into a single compilation. Block out the next 51 minutes on your schedule for a hilarious sequence of marble-mouthed scenery-chewing and ridiculous crime-fighting action.
“I’m sure they’d cut it, but the leads are backstage changing, and they need a lot of time…” If you’ve been to the theater to see a musical, you know exactly what Upright Citizens Brigade performer Sarah Smallwood Parsons is singing about in her hilarious parody of that one song that nobody cares about or remembers.
The guys at Nukazooka poke fun at the low poly look of the Tesla Cybertruck with this hilarious clip that imagines a pocket-sized gadget that could turn anything into a primitive and clunky version of itself. We wonder what would happen if you pointed it at LEGO’s Cybertruck.
Known best for his outlandish scenery chewing in The Room, renaissance man Tommy Wiseau has been inserted into the world of Star Wars, with a bit of help from PistolShrimps. Along the way, he romances Anakin, seeks therapy from Yoda, tosses around a football, and calls Kylo Ren a chicken… and a princess.
“Stop touching things.” For anyone who has ever had a cat, that pretty much sums it up. OwlKitty did a great job poking fun at the dynamic between Mando and Baby Yoda in this brief parody of The Mandalorian, replacing the mysterious bounty hunter’s 50-year-old prize with a mischievous kitty.
WeTransfer is one of the most popular file sharing services out there. But what would it have been like back in the early days of the Internet, and 3.5″ floppies were still a thing? Leave it to the guys at Squirrel Monkey to explore that alternative past with their typically dry humor.
In this classic sketch from Key & Peele, the duo poke fun at crime dramas. Peele potrays a suspect who attempts to use his calm demeanor and lying skills like Verbal Kint in The Usual Suspects. But he’s not quite as effective at making up his answers off of stuff he sees on the cop’s wall.
(PG-13: Language) Travis Bible’s horror short satirizes obnoxious online personalities and their chatty followers, as “soon to be top five” vlogger Chad Ryan pays a visit to a cabin where a massacre took place. But he finds himself in a bit too deep as he livestreams his experience to millions of followers.
(PG-13: Language) Is your internet router on the fritz? Appliances acting up? Uncle Rob has got you covered. His series of informative life hacks has the universal solution for just about anything, and it involves gasoline, a spark, and a bit of whiskey. More useful tips here.
(PG-13: Language) Upper State’s darkly-comedic parody of The Sopranos imagines if the show was set in the Mushroom Kingdom instead of New Jersey. It’s so well executed, it could have been an actually episode of HBO’s hit drama. Actor Max Koch’s Gandolfini impression really helps sell it. (Thanks Ryan!)
