Mm, what you say?

I told myself I wouldn’t do this. I promised myself, actually. No, Karen, I said. Don’t do that. YouTube video embeds haven’t been working for you lately, and everyone has already seen this.

But I must. I cannot resist. This post contains violence, but just movie and television show violence…not real life violence, is what I’m saying.

For those of you who follow the television show called the O.C. (I confess I do not), you know that the season ended rather violently and (I guess?) unexpectedly.

For those of you who have not see this finale, it still holds something very unexpected. Warning, by the way, some violence and also lots of bad acting.

That song! What is with that song? It’s so abrupt, so loud, so…oddly chosen and placed. I looked the song up and it turns out the whole song is pretty long, and the bit they chose is near the end…the entire rest of the song sounded pretty okay for a shooting scene. Why they chose this weird boy-band section is beyond me. But, of course, the choice was made, and it was too ridiculous for the show SNL not to respond with a parody. Warning: violence, and also comedy.

And then, of course, it was not too long before YouTube responded with ONE HUNDRED BILLION PARODIES OF THE PARODY, most of which completely suck. Here are a few of my favorites.

This one I like because it was a classic, wonderful idea. The flaw is in the execution. But, now that it’s done, no one’s going to make a better one to show them up. (Warning: limb removal, Monty Python)

This one is hilarious, because the song actually works better in this scene than in the original scene from the OC. (Warning: arrows, orcs, and better acting than in the OC)

This one? My absolute favorite. It starts out okay, gets better, then gets kind of boring, but stick it out: the very end had me laughing out loud and I almost fell over. (Warning: The f-bomb, much violence, and Die Hard)

And now it’s out of my system, and I can move on. Check out some of the other parodies, if you like, I couldn’t handle the thought of watching every single one, there are so many. I also have this song as my ring tone now. It makes all my calls so much more dramatic.

    According to your link, the OC song was by Imogen Heap – Hide and Seek. I never watched The OC was too filled with teen angst for my taste.

    That song seems like one of those songs that whenever you hear it, Mr. T clubs a seal.

    ARGGG! That song ran through my head all night. There must be some sort of mind control involved…
