The Honest Trailers franchise goes completely meta with this battle of competing narrators…

True Crime Documentaries Become Self-Generating

What happens when a true crime documentary obsessive plots to create a documentary with himself at the center? This College Humor parody is highly recommended for fans of Making a Murderer, The Jinx and Serial

Make Your Face Great Again – The Donald Trump Makeup Tutorial

Makeup tutorials are a super-popular category of YouTube video. Sometimes I can’t believe how quickly these artists can deconstruct a look or a trend. Case in point, Tess Paras breaks down a new look that is sweeping the nation: Trumping!

It looks delicious, but I’m not sure how attractive it is. Plus, where’s the dead guinea-pig wig and the offshore-manufactured necktie? This will get you part of the way to the fully Trumped-up look, but there are still some, uh, delegates missing.

If you like this, Tess also has a parody of Lorde’s “Royals” video and a science-fiction (?) short that asks the question, “What if catcalls were cheeseburgers?”

Girls on Facebook: The Wild Emotional Ups and Downs of Posting a Single Photo

Is this a documentary?

I’m not sure this only applies to girls. I’ve seen plenty of dudes display the same social media insecurities.

Facebook is carefully designed to give us FOMO: fear of missing out. And also to trigger that hairy ape portion of the brain where you worry whether there will be anyone in your tribe to pick the nits off your back.

So we can laugh as this sketch, but also weep inside.

Spawtlight Exposes the Truth about Boston

Game of Thrones: Winter is Trumping

“Making a Murderer” Simpsonized

The Simpsons has been on TV long enough that you can do a parody trailer for anything. Case in point, this Vulture recut of the Netflix documentary series Making a Murderer

If you know both shows, the correspondences are spot on. Homer Simpson is obviously Stephen Avery. And note who gets cast in the other roles… Ken Kratz, anyone?

If you like this trailer recut, you might enjoy some classic Tastes Funny originals, like this mashup of Skyfall and Stephen Spielberg’s Lincoln. Or how about Capt. Ron: Legacy, a remix of the Martin Short comedy vehicle Captain Ron and Tron: Legacy.

The Chickening is the Ultimate Absurdist Remix of The Shining

Prepare to be extremely disturbed. Stephen King can stop letting filmmakers remake The Shining now… the ultimate scarily-spookifying cinematic version of his tale has now been created. Come play with us, Danny!

I think the biggest mystery here is, when were Shelly Duvall’s eyes digitally crossed and when were they just like that? Science may never know the answer. Unless an ignorant rapper tweets about it to Neil deGrassy Tyson or something. Tyson… Tyson Chicken… The Chickening… Nope. Thought I had it there for a second.
