Best Parody (The Ditto Award)

Postby GloryQuestor » Sun Jan 22, 2012 4:12 pm

(The Ditto Award) This video imitates or satirizes a known genre or piece of media. Many parodies are for comic effect, but some are dramatic and thought-provoking. The award goes to the video which was most effective in parodying something else, whether it be in a funny, dramatic, cool, or just plain bizarre way.

Gonna drop this here. Yay to be in before the non-parody entries flood this category.

REMINDER: Parody doesn't equal comedy (though that doesn't say a parody cannot be comedic).









That being said, I'll be a knucklehead here and self-promote:

A parody of 1950's/1960's sci-fi trailers.

Parodying James Bond/spy films.

In fact, a parody must be comedic. It's a squares/rectangles situation.

Well, now that I look back at the actual definition, it does. Never really thought of it having to though. For instance:


is considered to be a good parody, but I never found it particularly funny.



Oh well, I think I'll just stop posting in the VCA threads since I can't not put my foot in my mouth here. :|
