will buy any crap

Enough said? Enough said. More »

 You've NEVER seen Taylor Swift get spoofed like this.

"Acting like I'm clueless

If you break my heart you'll wind up

In a crappy song." More »

In the video for Kesha's biggest hit, she basically comes off looking like a dirty party girl with questionable personal hygiene practices. Enter the parody version, "Glitter Puke." There's a good reason why this video was the second most viewed clip EVER on YouTube in 2010. More »

The "Telephone" was a wild ride all on its own, and this spoof stays pretty true to the original but with all new funny song lyrics, over-the-top costumes, and the general zaniness that is their signature style. Also, the lead actresses look (and sound) SO MUCH like Lady Gaga and Beyonce. It's actually kind of scary. More »

Psy's Gangnam Style

There were literally dozens of Gangnam Style parody videos circulating in 2012, but this one actually goes there. Instead of featuring singer Psy, the video's protagonist is the hated North Korean Supreme Leader, Kim Jong-un.

One Direction might be kaput, but this parody of "One Thing" will live on! The lyrics tell the story of a middle aged man who suddenly becomes a HUGE fan of the tween sensations, donning salmon skinny pants, suspenders, and a bad toupe so that he can be just like the band members.
