Co-Branding Parodies

Danger Maiden Productions Mocks Star Wars and Axe

— May 9, 2009 — Naughty
Danger Maiden Productions has done a fantastic job with this hilarious, sexy and entertaining parody video. We've seen a few great parodies, each entertaining in their satirical examination of popular social issues, but this one is exceptionally amusing.

Watch 'Saber', a brilliantly creative video in which two girls in a bar fight it out over a fella 'Jedi style'. Danger Maiden Productions plans to release a new web-series spin off of the SABER fight.

Implications - Starring Rileah Vanderbilt and Clare Grant, the ad's unlikely pairing makes it striking and exciting. The incredibly talented Adam Green, who wrote and directed the parody, makes light saber fighting look sexy and fun. It would be great if Axe and Star Wars teamed up again for a series of hilarious plays.
Trend Themes
1. Co-branding Parodies - Creating parodies that integrate established brands in unexpected ways can generate buzz and reach new audiences for all parties involved.
2. Satirical Social Commentaries - Producing humorous videos that comment on social issues can create engagement and build brand personality, while also harnessing the power of humor to connect with audiences.
3. Web-series Spin-offs - Expanding on successful one-off videos with web series can build sustained engagement and help turn viral hits into long-term brands.
Industry Implications
1. Advertising - By creating humorous ads that poke fun at established brands and cultural norms, companies can use humor to cut through the clutter and truly engage audiences.
2. Entertainment - Developing creative parodies and satirical commentaries can enhance engagement and drive viral sharing, which is critical in online entertainment and content marketing.
3. Social Media - Sharing viral videos through social media can help to build brand equity and increase reach by leveraging the viral nature of user sharing and engagement.
