I sincerely hope that YouTube’s content doesn’t suffer in the wake of the Google buyout. Where else am I gonna find such gems?
The Family Guy is a freakin’ brilliant show. That kind of stupid, slapstick comedy interspersed with hilarious, anti-politically-correct social commentary — along with its impeccably timed infusions of pop-culture — really strike a chord with me.
Here’s a perfect for-instance: their spoof Aha’s “Take on Me” is one of my favorites. Check out the video…
Thanks to the wonders of YouTube, idiots all over the world can record themselves and post it on the Internet for free. This, of course, means that Spoofs beget Spoofs.
Of course, the college version is somewhat better quality…
But the Anime version is definitely the best…
All that aside … Another great Family Guy spoof was Peter Griffin’s spoof of M.C. Hammer’s “You Can’t Touch This.” The implication “You Can’t Touch Peter” was amusing in itself.
This one sparked a multitude of spoofs, mostly Anime. This one — mixing Disney, Tron and the Kingdom Hearts 2 video game — hit a few funny nerves.
But, by far, this version (from the anime series, Trigun) took the cake for its near-flawless synchronization.
