"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.
MGM Studios is not pleased
Remember all of the back and forth that ensued after producer Adi Shankar and director Joseph Kahn released their fan film based on the Mighty Morphin’ Power Rangers that ultimately got resolved to everyone’s satisfaction? Well, Shankar released a second fan film, this time based on characters from the James Bond movie franchise. The animated short film, James Bond: In Service of Nothing, was online for a while but MGM Studios filed a copyright complaint and got the video yanked offline … even tho the fan film was made entirely of original content. Here we go again. Unfortunately, the video is no longer online for your viewing pleasure but you can click below to learn a bit about the short fan film while we wait for it to eventually get put back online. More »
"My apologies are on the level of Jesus"
Earlier this week, Kanye West publicly and formally apologized to Beck and Bruno Mars on Twitter for being an a-hole toward them in real life. Last night, Kanye West (brilliantly played by SNL castmember Jay Pharaoh) make an appearance on Saturday Night Live to offer more apologies. Pharaoh as Kanye delivered a rap performance that is just too good not to see. If you thought Kanye‘s real life apologies were good (or, you know, if you thought they sucked) then you MUST watch the video below of Jay Pharaoh‘s Kanye apologies to see how it’s really done. You will LOVE. More »
