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 »
'Age of Bon Bon'
LOL! Sesame Street has been KILLING the parody game lately with their cute spoofs of Game of Thrones, The Hunger Games, Homeland, Sons of Anarchy and more. Today we see that they set their sights on The Avengers: Age of Ultron with a new parody spoof titled The Aveggies – Age of Bon Bon. The lesson here is about healthy eating but the entertainment value is so fun that this video clip has been elevated to something more. Check out this cute Sesame Street parody video and fall in love.
OMG SO GOOD
Sesame Street has done a really great job with the parodies they do of TV shows like Sons of Anarchy, Homeland, The Hunger Games and more … but they probably outdid themselves with this brilliant parody of Game of Thrones. I mean, I can’t even list all of the things I love about this parody video … it’s really smart, really clever and really not something that kids would understand … unless their gnarly parents let them watch GoT. Of the Sesame Street parodies we’ve seen to date, this one is deffo one of the best … don’t you think? Let me know below.
David Beckham will appear as a guest on The Late Late Show with James Cordon tonight and to promote his appearance on the show, a parody underwear line video starring Becks and Cordon has been released. I think it’s supposed to be a funny spoof of Beckham‘s real underwear ads but it’s not really all that funny. Becks still looks way hot in his undies so … the video is deffo worth a look. Check out the video above and then tune in late late tonight to watch him on The Late Late Show if you’d like to see more.
Madonna Week Continues with a live performance of 'Ghosttown'
Madonna Week continues today on The Ellen DeGeneres Show as more fun breaks out on the show. We were promised that Ellen and Madonna have “something very funny up their sleeves” for today’s show so … we’ll see. The clip below will be featured on today’s episode of Ellen and it’s kinda funny but I’m hopeful we’ll get something even funnier cuz kinda funny isn’t really funny enough. Click below to see Ellen‘s revelation that she was a back-up dancer in Madonna‘s 2000 music video for her song Don’t Tell Me. This kinda funny clip will kinda make you laugh, I hope. More »
Meet 'The Uncanny X-Men'
Have you ever wondered what the X-Men movie would look like had it been directed by Wes Anderson? Yeah, me neither … even still, filmmaker Patrick H. Willems answers the question with the short parody film embedded above. Anyone familiar with Wes Anderson‘s style of filmmaking will likely find this video humorous. I enjoyed about the first 2 minutes of this video before I got bored (which isn’t really good for a 4 1/2 minute short film) but it’s a clever attempt to retell the X-Men story in such a way that might make Wes Anderson proud. Have a look above, see if you can scrounge up a few LULz.
