The Social Network parody: The Video Website

By / 08.04.10

Everyone seems to be really excited for David Fincher’s The Social Network, which is odd to me, because for a movie about Facebook, it seems absurdly dramatic.  SEX! DRAMA!  INTRIGUE! POKES! EQUATIONS WRITTEN ON A WINDOW! Basically, it was ripe for parody.  And as if to drive home the point that minor-key piano music and a children’s choir singing Radiohead could make anything seem dramatic, Jeff Loveness and friends created this trailer, “The Video Website,” for a similar film, but about YouTube.  It’s pretty good, but am I the only one who thinks not using the chimp peeing in his own mouth was a huge missed opportunity?  That should be YouTube’s mascot.  Anyway, long story short, I like to listen to “The Final Countdown” while I take dumps and pretend I’m the star of my own biopic.

I’ve included the trailer for The Social Network for comparison.  You can watch it below this chick’s butt.
