25 Hysterical Pop Culture Parodies

From Celebrity Self-Parodies to Fierce Fan Lipdubs

— May 6, 2010 — Pop Culture
The innovations in this pop culture parodies cluster all feature a comedic perspective, whether it's a video, celebrity, or political spoof. 80s hits from Madonna, boy band favourites, or retro remixes prove it doesn't matter what generation you're from, funny is always in.

These pop culture parodies are clever, fun and hysterical. They include celebrity self-spoofing as well as creations from faithful fans.

Implications - Celebrities are attractive, but they become even more so when they're being made fun of. With these figures held in high regard, consumers enjoy being reminded of their status as mere humans through their imperfections. Any business can profit off the image of a celebrity even if it means ridiculing them.
