Best Parody

Postby Otohiko » Sun Jan 20, 2013 2:34 am

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.
The Birds are using humanity in order to throw something terrifying at this green pig. And then what happens to us all later, that’s simply not important to them…

I'll get stuff up later, but a general suggestion for everyone post the original and then the parody for comparison. The former can just be a YouTube link if its not anime or on here. It can really help if people aren't familiar with the source being paroidied.

This is a tough one, since the most enjoyment from this requires seeing the original PONPON first. Once you do, though ... yeah, you get it. :)

@GQ - that's almost a given in this category, though. It's not best video that happens to be a parody, it's best parody. Which is why I suggested people post before & after links, so we all have the proper context to judge for ourselves.

is that how Best Parody (and other best of categories) is defined? "Best Mimic of another video" as opposed to "Best video that falls under Parody definitions" :uhoh:

a crucial difference in definitions if you ask me. also a thought that i think should be stressed upon in the other categories so we don't have the usual sweep winners.
