This Parody Fits Every Indie Movie Cliche Into Under 3 Minutes

Remember that Cracked parody about Oscar-nominated movies? Just in time for the Sundance Film Festival, indie movies now have a parody all their own. “Not Another Sundance Movie” was created by the comedy group Tastes Funny, and it’s packed with every indie cliche you can imagine. Vintage pickup trucks. People crying in the front seat…

The Most Honest Music Festival Poster Ever

I used to pretend to like summer music festivals, but then I realized they’re actually closer to my idea of hell than my idea of fun. Artist Chris Melberger designed this parody music festival poster that paints a painfully accurate picture of the music festival experience ($10 beers! Kids on drugs!), and the random roster of…

Watch This: Anne Hathaway Sings The “Girl Meets World” Theme Song

Anne Hathaway has been everywhere lately, breathlessly accepting All The Awards for her portrayal of doomed prostitute Fantine in “Les Miserables.” Would it really be that hard to believe that Anne would leverage all this musical attention into a gig singing Disney show theme songs, in character? That’s the premise of this hilarious video by…

Watch This: An Instagram Parody, Nickelbacked For Your Pleasure

As an unabashed fan of both Instagram and Nickelback, I must admit this parody video stung a little, but it also made me laugh nonstop for three minutes. Also, I was simultaneously delighted and horrified when Julie came up with the phrase “Nickelbacked for your pleasure,” but in this case, it’s really a perfect description.

3 Modernized Christmas Carols To Celebrate Awkward Family Time

Christmas carols are nice, but they’re a little out of touch with the realities of modern life, don’t you think? I mean, red-nosed reindeer, frosty snowmen, jingling bells, and little drummer boys? Whatever. I think it’s time for an update. Ready to sing about real holiday topics like awkward political discussions, chaste sleeping arrangements, and…

Cats, Inspired By Kittens — The Book!

Maybe you remember last year’s hit craze, “Kittens, Inspired by Kittens“? Well, this is its follow-up: “Cats Inspired By Kittens Inspired by Kittens,” a lighthearted parody which offers even more cheeky hilarity in the form of narrated photos of cats. [YouTube]…

“True Life”: Skinny Jeans Destroyed A Man’s Privates

You have boring spoofs and you have hilarious spoofs. This parody of MTV’s “True Life” series is one of the latter because it hits the ridiculousness of the show right on the nose. Like that kid who was “addicted” to tattoos and had to get one every time he got drunk, the young…

Bobby Bottleservice Wants On “Jersey Shore”

In this Funny or Die parody, comedian Nick Kroll’s alter-ego “Bobby Bottleservice” auditions for MTV’s “Jersey Shore.” In his audition video, he says he plans on using his winnings from the show (he’s under the impression it’s a competition with prize money) to buy a gold jet ski, as well as calf implants. Oh,…
