Hit songs, hit shows, celebrities... no one was safe from spoofing in 2013!

Here are some of the funniest parody videos to hit the web in 2013.   Enjoy!

10. Tina Fey Mocks "Girls" In Faux Promo

 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.  

9. James Franco and Seth Rogan Spoof 'Bound 2'

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!

 

8. "Joking Bad" by Jimmy Fallon

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.

7. What Does My Girl Say?

"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!"

6. Stephen Colbert Gets Daft Punk'd

After Daft Punk canceled their appearance on The Colbert Report at the last minute, host Stephen Colbert enlisted some of his funniest A-list friends to lip synch their own version of the popular song.

5. "The Hungry Games, Catching Fur" By Sesame Street

 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.  

4. Jimmy Kimmel and Guillermo in "Blurred Lines"

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.

3. "Game of Thrones" Meets "The Princess Bride"

Fans of the cult classic movie The Princess Bride will recognize the faces in this charming faux promo. Fred Savage and his grandpa, Peter Falk, sit down to read a story, but it's a little different than the tale of Wesley and Buttercup that we're used to.

2. Macklemore and Ryan Lewis Get A Record Deal

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.   

1. Wrecking Ball (Chatroulette Version)

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.
