“The Bold and the Lyrical”
On Monday’s episode of The Late Late Show, James Corden had Julianne Moore and Fuller House‘s John Stamos act out a scene from a soap opera using nothing but Taylor Swift lyrics. The “Bold and the Lyrical” tells the story of Juliette Moore and James Cordone including lines from the Taylor’s hits like “Shake it Off,” “Blank Space” and “I Knew You Were Trouble. At one point, Julianne quotes “Someone Like You,” with the host calling her out on the mistake, saying: “I think that’s Adele. Good song though!” More »
With special guest stars Justin Bieber, Katy Perry & Beyoncé
LOL! Remember back in July when we saw that hilarious parody video that a fan put together that imagined a conversation between Nicki Minaj, Taylor Swift and others about their silly Twitter beef stemming from the MTV Video Music Awards nominations? Well, the same genius fan put together a new parody video that features Nicki Minaj, Miley Cyrus and others conversing about their new beef from the VMAs itself. With special guest appearances by Justin Bieber, Katy Perry and — of course — Beyoncé, this new parody video is must see … as it will surely make your life better. Please enjoy.
This is awesome
Before you watch this sketch, I want you to Google “how much did Lebron James make in 2014.” I’ll wait. Now Google how much your favorite elementary school teacher made when you were in school, except you can’t because he/she is not famous enough for anyone to know their salary. But we do know that the average elementary school teacher makes, like, $55,000-ish per year. Key & Peele give us one more reason to love them (and mourn their ending) with this hilarious “TeachingCenter” sketch, which imagines a world where our best educators are treated—and paid—according to their worth. Peep the video for more!

Way back in 1996, MTV got Estelle Getty, Betty White and Rue McClanahan to participate in a parody of Clueless for the MTV Movie Awards. All these years later, that parody video has come to light to find new life online. I have a vague recollection of watching this parody take place when it originally aired live back in the mid-’90s but I surely had forgotten all about it until PINTB reader Adrienne reminded me that it existed. As you can see in the low quality video embed above, the Golden Girls recreated key moments of the movie quite well … and very hilariously. I mean, how funny is Estelle Getty talking about how she needs to get laid? Clueless may have just turned 20 years old but it remains the gift that keeps on giving. Please enjoy.
Rihanna‘s Bitch Better Have My Money video received an incredible amount of attention when it was released last week—and much of it was negative. Critiques of the video addressed the issue of violence against women and many people (myself included) have offered counter-critiques, defending the video. Others are arguing that the feminist perspective is specifically that of white feminists, which limits the perspective. And now we have this—an odd cartoon parody from PopToonsTv and Chibi Toons wherein Rihanna actually kidnaps and tortures Taylor Swift (who she might have had some beef with in the past).

'Avengers of Oz: Age of Tin Man',
An creative fan of both The Wizard of Oz and The Avengers: Age of Ultron came up with the brilliant idea to mash-up elements of the two movies and create a trailer for a parody film titled Avengers of Oz: Age of Tin Man … and it is glorious to behold. Darren Wallace is the clever chap who put this mash-up video together and as you can see above, he did an excellent job. The Tin Man as Ultron is clever … but the Cowardly Lion as Thor is absolute genius. Check out this video and see what you think. I hope you will enjoy it as much as I do :)
"OK, that one big cookie!"
In the past couple of months, we’ve seen really fun parody videos from Sesame Street that have parodied The Avengers: Age of Ultron and Game of Thrones (which are only the most recent of their brilliant parody videos). Today we get to see their latest offering, a spoof of Jurassic World titled Jurassic Cookie. As you can see above, this parody video probably looks a bit more like a parody of Jurassic Park but with the new movie coming out this week, let’s just go with a Jurassic World parody. The premise of this video is simple … Cookie Monster comes up with the brilliant idea to take a little piece of cookie, found in zillion-year old rock, and turns it into a BIG cookie for a super duper theme park … and then, of course, delicious mayhem ensues. I really, really love all of these Sesame Street parody videos. Nothing makes you feel like a kid again more than the release of a parody video that is supposedly made for kids but is clearly intended for adults. This one is fun, check it out.
"This is the best idea we've ever had"
Last night, NBC aired a telethon to benefit Red Nose Day here in the US which is an initiative to raise funds for needy families. Among the skits and performances aired during the telethon, was the bit embedded above that shows us what a Game of Thrones musical composed by Coldplay might look and sound like. I didn’t watch the telethon last night but I do love this clip. Check it out, see if you like it, too. And if you would like to donate to support Red Nose Day, you can do so HERE.
Jimmy Fallon teamed up with actor Jack Black for a scene-by-scene recreation of the 1990 music video of the song More Than Words by Extreme. Right down to the extraneous band members watching Jimmy and Jack perform the song, the video embedded above is practically identical to the original music video. And the singing ain’t half bad. Watch Jimmy and Jack‘s take on the More Than Words music video above then watch the original 1990 music video below for comparison. More »
