Music Video Parodies

I know musicians spend alot of time, effort and money on music videos.  They pour their artistic souls into them trying create their inner vision of the song.  Unfortunately, these videos ruin their songs for me most of the time.  Take, for example, Lady Gaga's Bad Romance.  I loved the song on the radio and made the mistake of viewing the video on the internet.

What?  Huh?  I'm so confused...  Luckily, I'm not the only one who finds these videos funny or just plain bizarre.  My first experience with internet music video parody was with Rad Bromance.  (Don't watch this with kids around as it has some bad language.)

Now, whenever I hear the song I insert their lyrics in.  It is hysterical!  Of course, then there is just the straight parody of their video.

Of course, not all music videos at You Tube are parodies of the song.  While I was looking through the CS Monitor, I saw this clip from China.

Apparently, China also has a problem with extreme, excessive reality shows.  I actually like this video better than Lady Gaga's original, even though it is pretty strange.
