This is fantastic. A musical parody done right, by Todrick Hall (former American Idol contestant). I’m already dreading the wave of horrible copycat “Ghetto Disney” videos surely on their way, but in the meantime I’m going to watch this again.
Watch the video below!
There are very few rappers to get excited about these days. Shad is one of them. The London, Ontario native just released a hilarious video for his latest single “The Old Prince Still Lives at Home”. The video, produced by Hot Dog Garbage, is a detailed parody of the opening of The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air. And when I say detailed, I mean it. Wow! (Hit reload if the video loaded off-center)
Great song and great video. Nas should take some notes this is how you do a low-budget video right.
My friend, and fellow Emily Carr graduate, Vasho Pekar and his co-workers at Artifex Studios (amazingly talented effects artists) put together this great little parody/re-cut of Cloverfield when they had a little down time at the office. It just hit FunnyOrDie yesterday and I’m sure it will be a big hit, it is really, really, well done. You probably need to have seen the flick for the full effect but maybe not. Great work Vasho!
I am quite jaded when it comes to parody music videos – but this one is as good as it gets. Unless you’ve been living under a rock you have already seen the sensational video for Justice’s latest single, Stress (I posted about it awhile ago). The hoodlums’ violence in the video was controversial to some but it was exactly the type of hardcore attitude that begged to be parodied. Without further ado I present to you, Justesse – No Stress directed by Thomas Vandenberghe (according to Antville and Youtube) and produced by Charles Villeneuve:
The firecracker part is hilarious!
If you never saw the original video for Stress, I posted it after the jump!
