This. Is. Brilliant.
Altho Thanksgiving was a couple of days ago, I have some fun leftovers to share with all y’all this weekend. Jimmy Fallon had guests Rashida Jones and Carrie Underwood on his show Late Night with Jimmy Fallon this week and he got them both to perform parody versions of some of our fave pop songs of the day in honor of the Thanksgiving holiday. I’ve tried to come up with a way to adequately describe the amazingness what Jimmy, Rashida and Carrie came up with but I think I shall let the video embedded above speak for itself. Check out the video to see these amazingly talented people perform renditions of songs by Daft Punk, Katy Perry, Lorde, Miley Cyrus, Icona Pop, Robin Thicke and more. Folks, it’s brilliance … pure and simple. Jimmy Fallon always does the holidays right, watch above and see what I mean.
Cookieness Evereat vs. The Hungry Games
Folks, we’ve seen a few pretty good spoofs from Sesame Street this year but the Children’s Television Workshop may have just outdone themselves with their latest parody. Titled The Hungry Games: Catching Fur, the Sesame Street gang reinterprets one of the year’s biggest movies in a way that is cuter than your wildest imagination. Cookie Monster stars in this parody as Cookiness Evereat where he competes in The Hungry Games alongside Finnicky, Tick Tock Lady, and Pita (who is a piece of Pita bread — lol) for cookie supremacy. I mean, it’s damn brilliant. Click the embed above to watch and fall in love.
Dang, does this mean I have to start watching Sesame Street on the regular again?
In the past few months we’ve seen some pretty cute stuff from the folks at Sesame Street. Folks like Jimmy Fallon, Lena Heady and Henry Cavill have paid visits to Sesame Street. Back in August we saw a really cute Muppet spoof of Sons of Anarchy and today, we get to see a new spoof that, I think, takes the spoof cake. Sesame Street produced a parody video lampooning the hit Showtime series Homeland and as you can see above, they NAILED their parody. Titled Homelamb, this skit pokes fun at every single thing we love about Homeland in a clever and completely adorable way. Click the embed above to watch … and love.
The New Batman & Lex Luthor Meet the New Superman
While the world still freaks about about the fact that Ben Affleck has been cast as the new Batman and rejoices that Bryan Cranston has reportedly been cast as the new Lex Luthor, an industrious fan put together a trailer for the planned sequel to Man of Steel that will feature both Superman and Batman in the same film. This fan was able to piece together existing footage of Affleck, Cranston, Henry Cavill and Amy Adams to craft a fictional trailer for the forthcoming film. Honestly, the trailer turned out pretty good … even if I’m STILL NOT ON BOARD with Affleck as Batman but … I shant digress. Check out the trailer above and see how things might turn out when the sequel to Man of Steel hits theaters in 2015.

An industrious fan of Mean Girls put together a movie trailer for a fictional movie sequel that WOULD BE SOOOOO AMAZING IF IT WERE REAL BUT BECAUSE IT’S NOT REAL WILL CAUSE US TO WEEP TEARS OF DISAPPOINTMENT INSTEAD. I can’t even really explain how brilliant this fictional movie trailer is so I’ll just let y’all watch it above and let y’all process how EFFING AWESOME it would be if the movie were actually real. Sigh. Click the embed above to watch the trailer for Mean Girls 2: The Reunion and try not to fall in love … then, get mega depressed at the reality that a sequel like this will never come to be :(
Remember back in February when we got to see that cute Downton Abbey parody video that was made by the folks (and muppets) at Sesame Street? Well, they’re at it again … but this time, we get to check out the Sesame Street version of Sons of Anarchy. Instead of running guns, these Anarchy muppets run rhymes … you dig? It’s a very cute clip that I know SOA fans will really enjoy. Check out the full Sons of Poetry parody in the embed above and please enjoy.
Too Perfect for Words
Aubrey Plaza, the Parks and Recreation actress who is starring in a feature film this weekend titled The To-Do List, features in a new parody video by College Humor that is just TOO perfect for words. Aubrey becomes the real life animated character Daria in a clever fictional movie trailer for a fictional movie titled Daria: High School Reunion. Some of you may remember the Daria animated series that aired on MTV in the 90s and I’m sure you’ll agree with me that this live-action parody video is just … amazing. Check out the fake trailer above and see what you think. I’ve never wanted a fake movie to be real before but this trailer, man, it’s so good. LOVE LOVE LOVE!!!
Better Seen and Not Heard
Over the weekend we got our first look at grainy, shaky and not at all clear video footage of the American Psycho parody promo video that Kanye West whipped up to promote the release of his new album Yeezus (which leaked to the Interwebs last Friday but is officially available now). As you may recall, that grainy video gave us a feel for the American Psycho parody which, IMHO, looked kinda cool. The promo vid has been officially released by Kanye and in the embed above, you can watch and hear the clip in full … but it’s not a pretty sight. The parody is inventive, I think, but the execution is horrendous. Scott Disick, who stars in the clip as Christian Bale‘s American Psycho character Patrick Bateman, is so irritatingly annoying that it makes the clip difficult to stomach. That voice? Kill me. He may look like the character but he SO does not embody the spirit of the character. That voice? OMG. Check out the clip, see what you think. Can you watch it the whole way thru without wanting to puncture your own eardrums?
Kanye Promotes his Other Baby
Earlier today we learned that Kanye West‘s baby was born into the world in the wee hours this morning but we cannot forget that Kanye has been hard at work promoting the release of his other baby … his new album Yeezus. Altho Yeezus leaked to the Internets 5 days early, that doesn’t mean that the promo push for the album is ending early. Last night, Kanye debuted a new projected video that features Scott Disick and Joanthan Cheban starring in a parody version of the film American Psycho. You can’t really hear the dialog in the video embedded above but it looks like a pretty faithful recreation of the film. Yeezus promo is still in FULL EFFECT … chances are, we may get to see other neat promo stuff in the next few days.
