Fart jokes never get old for the small of mind. In this light, you may not have seen the fart-inspired parody of the infamously earwormy song, “Let It Go”. This is titled, quite appropriately, “Let One Go”, and the singing is about as close to Idina Menzel as you can possibly get without actually being Idina Menzel. Just a lot, lot ruder, of course.
Two of Nicki’s biggest South African fans have decided to pay tribute in their own special way. From the same people who brought you Hipsters and Hastags and the Payday Song, come a remix of Anaconda that’s certainly a roar from the rear.
There are many many covers and parodies of Gotye’s unavoidable track “Somebody That I Used to Know”, so much so that the singer himself created a supercut, stitching together over 100 YouTube fan clips.
It would have been the cover to end all covers had it not been for YouTube user bd594 who recreates the song using an unlikely band of musicians. Watch as a troupe of hard drives and oscilloscopes provides the bassline and an HP Scanjet 3C stands in for the vocalists in this old school computer remix of “Somebody That I Used to Know”.
The world seems to love Adele’s “Rolling in the Deep”. It has been covered hundreds and thousands of times on YouTube, and Luc Bergeron even created a music video for the song containing clips of other YouTube users singing it. It’s still surprisingly good.
The animal world is getting in on the act too. In this spoof by The Pet Collective, Pete “Pawdele” feels similarly scorned as his owner steps out the house with her male friend. Check out Digging in the Deep below.
YouTube user Jack Douglass wants to drop out of school and make dubstep his profession. When he tells his parents of the life-altering decision, they ask him what dubstep is and Jack explains it with a rather humourous round of show and tell.
Filmed near parking spaces next to the local Spar in Vredehoek and sung in the same style as “Love The Way You Lie” by Eminem, Watts tells us about the life and often thankless job of a car guard. Some people give R2 while others give excuses, and Watts is about to hang up his high visibility vest when the car guard king arrives, dropping R5 coins and a whole lot of sage advice. Check out The Car Guard Song below.
People have polarized opinions about car guards. What are your thoughts—do you pay them for the protecting your car or do you leg it before they get there?
Winter is coming. Literally. It’s getting a tad colder in the southern hemisphere as citizens prepare for the biting cold that is on the way. They’re also waiting for the second season of Game of Thrones to begin, and in tribute to the medieval show, The Simpsons transform their town of Springfield into Westeros, complete with a despotic king as he watches over the kingdom from Burns Landing. Check out The Simpsons’ “Game of Thrones” couch gag below.
If you’re a fan of space westerns like Saber Rider, Bravestarr, and SilverHawks, I think that you’ll appreciate the cheesiness that is Space Stallions.
As a homage to their favourite cartoons from the 80s, The Animation Workshop from Denmark tells the story of Sun Ray and his fellow Space Stallions as they battle the demon of darkness, Destructo. Behold the horsepower, keytars, and cheesy 80s beats!
This is brilliant! YouTube user moviemaestroten took the audio track from the latest trailer to Christopher Nolan’s upcoming film The Dark Knight Rises and skillfully matched it to scenes from the 1994 animated adventure, The Lion King. The results are amusing to say the least, and Scar makes for a wondefully incomprehensible villain. Check out The Lion King Rises.
The Dark Knight Rises releases on July 27th in South Africa. The Lion King, now 18 years old, was re-released in 3D in September 2011, and earned a whopping USD 30.2 million in its opening weekend!
This is the funniest thing I’ve heard in ages. Disappointed at the state of dubstep in the world, DJ Logam from interdimensional recording label Betamorph Recordings has shown how simple it has become to create a dubstep track, so much so that even your mom could do it.
You can download the track from here. Logam has also created a competition asking for remixes to Your Mom Makes Dubstep. Have a listen to those mixes, also on Soundcloud.
