On Friday evening, TED, the company behind the invitation-only event that offers talks from experts on topics like “How One Flower Will Cure World Thirst” and “Space Game Is the Next Hunting Frontier,” had its lawyer send a note to itself: You’re drunk; please stop texting our friends.
A few years ago I saw David Byrne and St. Vincent in concert and it was a.) a blessed dream and b.) probably the closest I will ever get to see the Talking Heads live. But! Fred Armisen, Maya Rudolph, and Bill Hader have united to form Test Pattern, a parodic homage to the Heads, and they are kick ass.
The Fifty Shades of Grey film became such a phenomenon earlier this year that avoiding it was fairly impossible. The movie turned out to be ridiculous (and bad) enough in itself that there’s no need to spoof it, but, as usual, Marlon Wayans is doing it anyway.
Lots of whimsy, lots of flashbacks and, wait, which one is Helena Bonham Carter?
Somewhere, in a long-forgotten vault at Paramount Pictures, there must be an old Betacam tape containing the trailer for the real Top Gun, the version that the executives didn't have the guts to distribute. The one that shows that this is the most homoerotic movie since Ben-Hur. It probably looks like this.
Here's your exclusive look inside my personal TV watching habits: I stopped watching Downton Abbey in season three because I could no longer muster up any concern over whether or not a rich family lost one of their several mansions. That said, I will tune in for The Britishes, the new DirectTV/College Humor sketch…
Hey Friend! I just made a really cool playlist that I wanted to share with you. It's the Cheesecake Factory's parody of Iggy Azalea's "Fancy" — called "We're So Cheesecake" — repeated again and again, until you either die (of happiness) or your ears start bleeding (also from happiness).
It's about time someone did a send up of Kevin Spacey's utterly terrible yet still endearing Southern "accent" on House of Course. Of course it had to be noted skit-giggler Jimmy Fallon to take on the two-time Academy Award winner in such a devilishly perfect way.
The geniuses over at The Onion have done it again.
After years of being manipulated by their cloying ads presented as real social experiments, many women have finally had enough of Dove's mawkish #TrueBeauty push. Which is why this spot-on parody of the campaign couldn't be more timely.
Here's what Beyoncé's "Partition" would sound like if Beyoncé had student loans: "Sallie Mae pay off my tuition please…"
This is one of those videos that's funny even before you see it, especially when you pretty much know what's coming.
Prepare yourselves, because the Kimye Vogue cover parodies are coming. The muppets have already thrown down the gauntlet and now James Franco and Seth Rogen have taken up the challenge of becoming the world's most talked-about couple.
It's Friday, people, and what better way is there to celebrate than by watching Sesame Street's take on Les Misérables?
I can say with complete confidence that "Dunkin Love," the donut themed "Drunk in Love" parody by Bay Area performers Adrian Anchondo and Reggie D. White, is the best thing I've watched all week, if not all year, if not in my entire life. A love song for donuts is a love song for all of us.
If there's one thing that can be said for the Swedish Marines (and this is the first time I've really heard about the Swedish Military, so I have very few things to say), it's that they don't skimp on showmanship. Military music videos have been huge hits in the past but none seem to possess the pure oomph and…
Real talk: Home Alone, the movie about an irresponsibly procreating family that abandons an attic-dwelling savant at home right before leaving the country for vacation, is really a prequel to the Saw franchise. Once you see this holiday installment of Honest Trailers, you will never be able to root against Harry…
This is "Reaping Ball."
One of the biggest problems with Sex and the City 2 was that it sucked. It contained a single good Lawrence of my labia joke, went on for more than two hours (146 minutes, to be more precise), and invented unnecessary drama so its characters could rehash old plot points that were handled during the series. Nobody…
Much like its Mod Carousel gender-swapped predecessor, a “Blurred Lines” parody called “Defined Lines” (because of gender roles, yo) made by several Auckland law students was briefly been deemed too ladybonerific for YouTube’s Council of Female Libido Deniers (it’s a very secret council).
