Bill Stiteler and Jeremy Stomberg pondered what it would be like if Mad Men’s Sterling Cooper were in charge of coming up with ideas for films and television shows instead of advertisements. The results are all too close to home.
“Dumb Ways To Die” is the new cool thing to parody apparently. This time, members of the Rocky Point Haunted House and Teddie Film made a version for The Walking Dead. With really, really great special effects. Spoilers for character deaths up through the latest season.
When something hits really big, it inevitably gets parodied. And parodied. And parodied until everyone wishes it would just go away. The reason everyone starts making parodies in the first place is because the source material was so good so it’s a shame once the internet is done with it, no one ever wants to see/watch it again. So goes the music video for Gotye’s “Somebody That I Used to Know.” To be fair, the videos that spun off of it were actually quite entertaining, and we simply cannot get the Star Wars/George Lucas version out of our heads, but perhaps it’s finally time to put an end to them all. Here to do it is comic Eric Schwartz. Watch as he attempts to break up with the song for good and when you’re done, you may want to watch this just to keep the circle of life intact.
The comedy group Barely Political came up with an amazing idea for those who are feeling a little torn about Sunday nights on AMC. The Walking Dead is done for the season, and you miss it, but Mad Men is here, and that’s okay, but it’s missing something: zombies! Here is the cure for what ails you: Walking Dead Mad Men.
We’re heading into another weekend, ladies and gents, and what better way to sign off for the day than with two videos made by fans of The Hunger Games who enjoy making parodies inspired by the blockbuster movie and books? Above, a version of LMFAO‘s “Sexy and I Know It” featuring Peeta Mellark and all of his bread. After the jump, “The Hipster Games.” It’s after the jump because it’s soooo underground.
We’ve seen our fair share of The Dark Knight Rises trailer mash-ups the last few months (see below) and although this one is more of an homage with Lego than a mash-up, we felt compelled to share it. ParanickFilmz put this one together and it is glorious. I need that Commissioner Gordon figure immediately because that mustache is epic, and also, Catwoman’s hat is and Miranda Tate’s (*cough*Talia*cough) facial expression is spot on.
Melinda Taub, comedy writer and performer of this video, makes a point that I totally didn’t consider until I saw this: Where were the sweeping, epic Super Bowl-caliber commercials from the fancy Capitol sponsors? Taub gives us an idea of what a Coca Cola spot would have looked like, and now we want to see how they would have advertised the hovercrafts and what famous musicians would have lent their voices.
If you have found yourself in the deep, deep conundrum of not having read any of the seven Harry Potter books or seen any of the eight Harry Potter movies, and you have exactly 60 seconds to find out what happened, then you have come to the right place (if you are reading this right now)! This video outlines pretty everything you need to know about the entire series, even though Voldemort was slightly more menacing than a balloon with a face drawn on it. But at least now, you will definitely be able to nod with recognition when someone mentions horcruxes.
Quick note: This video is actually an entry in the Virgin Radio Fake Film Festival, and you can vote on it here! The filmmakers also have a Facebook page so you can see how that’s going.
The first (or so) rule of Time Lordery: Don’t cross your own time line. Except when there is a joyous reunion party (or plot device that requires time line crossing) involved! We urge you to look past the bad accents and stick around for a pizza party with every incarnation of the Doctor who has ever entered the TARDIS. Well, almost all of them.
If you want to read more about how in the world a real TARDIS console ended up in this video, though, you should visit Kevin Kittridge‘s blog.
Well, good morning! What better way to start your weekend than with a foul-mouthed parody of My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic? Max Gilardi is responsible for this, which must have been inspired by the one and only legend/creator of Ren and Stimpy, John Kricfalusi. Nothing dirty for the eyes, but quite a bit of NSFW language, which is hilarious when coming out of adorable ponies.
