Here are some of the funniest parody videos to hit the web in 2013. Enjoy!
During the Saturday Night Live season premier, host Tina Fey came out of the gate swinging with this hilarious spoof of HBO's hit series, Girls. Fey plays a fictitious new character on the twenty-something drama, an Albanian woman who becomes a roommate to the very neurotic Hannah (played by Lena Dunham). Every SNL cast member nailed their impersonation of the self-involved, self-pitying girls of Girls.
While on the set of their movie, The Interview, actors James Franco and Seth Rogen decided to remake Kanye West's new Bound 2 video, shot for shot. In the video, Rogen plays a hairy, chubby, pasty version of Kim Kardashian, and Franco raps and mugs for the camera in true West-ian style. Nice job, guys!
Jimmy Fallon and crew came up with this excellent spoof of the hit AMC drama Breaking Bad. In the clip, instead of cooking and selling meth, the lead character deals in one-liners and punchlines. Fallon even managed to snag guest appearances by the show's stars, Bryan Cranston, Aaron Paul, and Bob Odenkirk.
"The Fox (What Does The Fox Say?)" is the quirky hit song by two Norwegian brothers known as Ylvis. The silly (but freakishly catchy) song inspired lots of funny parodies, but by far the best of them was this sketch on Saturday Night Live.
Here we see SNL cast member Jay Pharoah, whose girlfriend, played by host Kerry Washington, catches him texting with another woman. What does Jay's girl say? "You done, you done messed up now!"
Just when you thought the Hunger Games couldn't get any more star-studded or dramatic, along comes a certain blue monster to shake up the whole franchise. In this spoof, Cookie Monster plays "Cookieness Evereat," a true victor in the Hungry Games.
Jimmy Kimmel of Jimmy Kimmel Live, along with his sidekick, Guillermo, made this funny version of the sexy music video for Robin Thicke's "Blurred Lines." Claiming that they had been edited out of the original version, Kimmel and Guillermo appear in an exact replica of the video with Thicke and Pharrell. They funny guys matched their movements with the action in the video perfectly, so this clip is full of awkward awesomeness.
This video stars Ben Heggarty/Macklemore and Ryan Lewis, along with comedian, and Funny Or Die cast regular Paul Scheer. The quips come fast and frequently in this clip, when the two artists sit down to meet with their new record executive.
This year we saw lots of great "Wrecking Ball" spoofs, but this latecomer knocked them all straight out of the water! YouTube user Steve Kardynal uploaded this Chatroulette edition of the hit song in late November, and within just two weeks it had already been viewed over 77 million times. In the video, Kardynal dresses and acts like Miley before an audience of unassuming Chatrouletters, and the results are a terrific mixture of appalled, shocked, amused, and absolutely disgusted.
