    Sing The Praises of Duct Tape to the Tune of DuckTales [Video]

    I will basically forgive any excuse to sing the Duck Tales song and the Warp Zone's clearly got my back here. Their most recent Youtube parody uses the melody of the decidedly rad late '80s cartoon theme tune to talk about the favorite tool of the tragically un-handy: duct tape. As you'd expect, it's incredibly silly.

    I Don’t Know What I Expected: Meow Men Stars Cats in Mad Men Opening Credits Parody [Video]

    This cat-inspired shot-for-shot remake of Mad Men's opening credits is pretty amazing, but I wish The Pet Collective had taken it further and done a complete retelling of the series. Just think of the pet-related name puns! Don Drapurr! Puggy Olsen! Paul Kittensey! And then there's Duck Phillips, of course. So many missed opportunities.

    Parody Twitter Account Parodies Getting Hacked [UPDATED]

    In the wake of the news that Twitter got hacked on Friday, a parody account of the U.K.'s Daily Mail, @DMReporter, pretended to be hacked this morning by a group of hackers who weren't in on the joke. Under the pretense that control of the account had been taken over by protesting hackers, the @DMReporter account tweeted messages railing against mass media right-wing propaganda, while the man behind the account Paul Dacre, went along with the joke, repeatedly asking the hackers to knock it off.

    See Some of the Dumbest Ways to Die in Video Games in New Parody

    Even though the original is only a few weeks old, we've already seen a few parodies of "Dumb Ways to Die." Up until now our favorite one feature the Curiosity rover, but that was until we saw this one. If there's anything that can unseat science in our hearts it's video games. Here we have a compilation by YouTube user Megasteakman of some of the dumbest, and most infuriating ways to die in video games. The Battletoads line hits close to home. We know that feel, bro.

    The “Mini iPad Mini” Sounds Too Good to Be True… Because It’s Fake [Video]

    When it comes to Apple, things tend to move very quickly. Apple announces the iPad Mini, and it's available the next week. Apple releases one version of the iPad, and then they release a new one just seven months later. Apple releases a new product, and Apple's critics make funny videos at Apple's expense.

    Birdwalk Empire [Video]

    Boardwalk Empire is, as far as I'm concerned, the best show currently on television. Sesame Street, while it isn't the best show currently on television, sure is an old favorite, and is quite good at parodying shows with more mature themes. If you've never wondered why that is, it's because adults often watch the show with their kids, and adults need something to do while puppets are teaching their children the value of sharing. Because of that, we now have Birdwalk Empire. Give it a watch.

    Star Wars “Call Me Maybe” Has Too Much Hayden Christensen, Is Still Cool [Video]

    "Call Me Maybe" has begged for parody from the moment it left Carly Rae Jepsen's windpipe. A new entry into the arena of YouTube spoofs comes in the form of this version of Jepsen's hit song; but with Star Wars! I don't think Carly Rae Jepsen saw this one coming. I don't think George Lucas saw this one coming, but here it is: "Call Me Maybe" cut together from Star Wars dialogue. Pour yourself a glass of blue milk, sit back, relax, and enjoy something that Hayden Christensen only kind of ruins.

    Beauty and the BEAT! Provides a Fantastic Ghetto Parody [Video]

    There's nothing quite like parody covers of Disney songs. Especially when the video is choreographed in an amusing manner. Add a humorous conceit and you've basically got internet gold. Todrick Hall, a former American Idol contestant, is behind the ghetto-inspired parody "Beauty and the BEAT!" that stars a variety of known YouTube personalities. That includes, but is not limited to, a small cameo from Antoine Dodson himself. The song is based on Beauty and the Beast's opening number and is quite well-fashioned. Personally, I'm hoping the next one to crop up is a version of "A Whole New World" from Aladdin. Regardless, I'm all for more comedic musicals of all shapes and sizes.

    Brilliant Parody Asks What Happened to That Star Wars That I Used to Know

    Hey, remember that song with the naked guy that sort of sounded like Sting and the triangles and the body painting? What if you took that hymn to mopey self-pity and used it to channel the confusion and betrayal felt by everyone that remembers a time before midi-chlorians? In short, the Star Wars that I used to know. This brilliantly executed pardody is required viewing for today. You'll never guess who takes the role of Kimbra.

    Parody of Call Me Maybe Might Be The Best Thing This Week [Video]

    And so it was that Carly Rae Jepsen's "Call Me Maybe" was parodied with such panache that all future parodies dimmed in comparison. The fantastic folks behind The Key of Awesome! have really outdone themselves this time with a hilarious take on the implications of maybe calling someone. If only every song were a list of things seemingly not connected to each other.

    Tetris, The Invasion Begins [VIDEO]

    In a world where big huge alien blocks haven't fallen from the sky and decimated mankind, big huge alien blocks fall from the sky and decimate mankind. This parody trailer for a gritty, disaster Tetris movie depicts the devastation of tetromino invaders. This is an extinction level event.

    Live Action Parody of Hey Arnold! [Video]

    From the same team that brought us the live action Doug parody trailer, comes a new live action Hey Arnold! parody, complete with the titular Arnold suavely saying he grew into his head when asked about the current, normal shape. Watch the video, it's a suspenseful thriller.

    Alien: Easter Edition is Chocolatey, Deliciously Gross

    What with Easter being a very egg-centric holiday and Ridley Scott's Prometheus coming oh so very soon, the two were destined to collide in this chocolatey parody of the original Alien film. Expect chocolate eggs and chocolate face huggers, and a reprise of a certain breakfast scene. You'll never look at chocolate sauce the same way. See the video, after the break.

    Walking Dead Mad Men Parody Has Brains In More Ways Than One

    You might not think of a 1960s era advertising agency as a good locale for a zombie flick, and that's probably because it isn't. It is, however, a great locale for a Mad Men, Walking Dead mashup that is way better than it has any right to be. The premise is about as simple as you'd imagine featuring a world where your favorite ad-peddling alcoholics have suddenly become zombies. As pretty much everyone has also suddenly become a zombie they now need to market only one product: Brains.

    A Less Optimistic and More Hilarious Take on Google’s Project Glass [Video]

    Google's new smart glasses initiative "Project Glass" was revealed to some pretty genuine excitement, and even though the concept is a bit different from anything we've seen so far, their little video made it seem awesome and frankly inevitable. Of course, it glossed over some other things that might be less awesome but just as inevitable, things like running into telephone poles and accidentally sending speech texts. Tom Scott decided to make Project Glass a second video highlighting those "features" to hilarious effect. I think Tom might have a point, but I also trust Google, so we'll just have to wait and see how it all plays out.
