LOL: Mr. Freeze Singing “Let It Go” From Disney’s ‘Frozen’ Makes Everything Better

The weekend has arrived, but for the majority of the US it’s accompanied by the second wave of polar vortex temperatures. If you’re anything like our staff you are well past having cabin fever and have descended into a level of madness that makes you wonder whether or not you actually remember what it’s like to spend an afternoon outside. Thankfully, the internet is here to distract us from the cold and isolation with a parody video we should have seen coming from a mile away.

2ChinTV, a YouTube channel specializing in comedy videos, recently released a video featuring Mr. …

Hilarious ‘Not Another Sundance Movie’ Trailer Parodies Indie Film Cliches

From “Film Student With A Rich Uncle” and an “Actor Trying To Be A Director” comes the funniest parody trailer we have seen in a long time.

Not Another Sundance Movie is a Tastes Funny original trailer that was posted to YouTube earlier this month. The clip, which runs roughly three minutes, makes light of indie film cliches. From visual gags highlighting a life worse than yours, to quotes from press with brutally honest lines like “young ethnic girl that’s guaranteed to be nominated for an Oscar but not win,” everything that you would expect to find in a typical …

Bruce Spingsteen Parodies “Born To Run” With Jimmy Fallon

Bruce Springsteen debuted a slightly reworked version of his classic single “Born To Run” during an appearance on Jimmy Fallon‘s television show late last night.

Joined by Fallon, who like The Boss was dressed in Bruce’s signature sleeveless outfit, Springsteen took to the late night stage to perform a parody of “Born To Run” dedicated to New Jersey governor Chris Christie and his recent ‘Bridgegate’ scandal. New lyrics to the song included:

“They shut down the tollbooths of glory ’cause we didn’t endorse Chris Christie,” and “Man, I’ve gotta take a leak, but I can’t, “I’m stuck in Governor

HILARITY: Seth Rogen And James Franco Get Intimate In “Bound 3″

Kanye, Kanye, Kanye, you can’t be releasing videos like “Bound 2″ without expecting some hilarious backlash. It’s nothing new, but as of late between his music video, his decision to rock the Confederate flag on the Yeezus tour, and whatever other antics he graces us with daily, it’s about time someone stepped up with some actual laugh out loud humor.

Check out after the jump to see Seth Rogen and James Franco kiss and caress each other on top of a motorcycle in their “Bound 3″ music video. You can compare it to Kanye’s video just below.…

Channing Tatum Parodies Van Damme’s Epic Split Commercial on the ’22 Jump Street’ Set

If you have spent any time procrastinating online in the last week you’ve probably stumbled across the new ad from Volvo Trucks featuring John Claude Van Damme’s ‘most epic of splits.’ As cool as it is to see the aging action star do the splits between two moving trucks to Enya, it’s also one of the silliest things to happen this year (if not ever). Channing Tatum seems to agree, and recently he used some free time on the set of 22 Jump Street to film his own epic split commercial.

Structured the same way Van Damme’s commercial …

Ylvis Take On New England With “Massachusetts”

Forget about asking what foxes say, the men of Ylvis have delivered a new single that is quickly sweeping the blogosphere with feel-good hilarity.

This is a weird one to write about as I am currently in Boston, but Ylvis have released a new single and hilarious video titled “Massachusetts.” The song serves as an anthemic ode to the hub of New England, with references to Catholicism, the Boston Public Library, Haverhill, Cape Cod, and a dozen or so things in between. It’s built as if it were a song of celebration, but as you can imagine things become increasingly …

UTG CRUSH: Rixton Want To “Make Out” With You

I love this column. Okay, so it’s not really a column per se, but after several months of these ‘Crush’ articles I have to believe you’ve put together that this corner of UTG is reserved for the latest pop discoveries. Forget about lyrical depth and well-meaning instrumentation for a few minutes and allow yourself to become lost in the confectionery world of top 40 music. It’s scary at times, I know, but it’s also the most fun you’ll have with your clothes on.

Several people have commented in recent weeks that all my Crush articles have highlighted the efforts of …

Miley Cyrus Performs Two Songs, Pokes Fun At Government Shutdown On ‘Saturday Night Live’

There seems to be no end in sight for the reign of Miley Cyrus.

Serving as both host and musical guest just days after making headlines for her raciest photo spread to date, Miley Cyrus took the stage at Rockefeller Plaza last night to appear on Saturday Night Live. The pop sensation did a passable job by all accounts, and this morning the show’s best moments are making their way around the net.

Starting with the performances, Miley took the obvious and delivered live renditions of “Wrecking Ball” and “We Can’t Stop” on the long-running sketch show. The …

Miley Cyrus ‘Wrecking Ball’ Video Prompts University To Remove Sculpture Following Nude Student Parodies

This was bound to happen sooner or later, right? Let’s just be happy no one was (hilariously) hurt.

Grand Valley State University in Michigan has announced removal of a long-standing sculpture from its campus following an outbreak of nude students spotted parodying the video for Miley Cyrus’ new single, “Wrecking Ball.” No, this is not a joke.

The sculpture at the center of this story is essentially a wrecking ball suspended a few feet off the ground by a large metal chain. As far as we can tell the sculpture has never drawn much attention in the 18 …

Plot, Parodies, and Promotional Poster Revealed For ‘A Haunted House 2′

You may have erased it from your memory by now, but in the second week of January this year a comedy arrived in theaters titled A Haunted House. The film starred Marlon Wayans and hoped to revitalize the parody genre with a play on popular horror/found footage films. We hated it, as did pretty much every other critic who saw its poor excuse for humor, but the box office receipts were high, so now we can all look forward to A Haunted House 2 arriving in March 2014.

Yesterday, the first official press release for A Haunted House

MOVIE REVIEW: Scary Movie 5

Film: Scary Movie 5
Starring: Ashley Tisdale, Simon Rex
Director: Malcolm D Lee

There have been at least a dozen introductions to this review before the one you’re currently reading. I could try and say this is due to the fact that I struggled over which amazing line to lead with, but the honest truth is that I’ve simply found no better way to express that something should be avoided at all costs than to come right out and say it. So, without further ado, Scary Movie 5 is a film you should avoid at all costs. If this message …
