Fifty Shades of Parody

Let's do sex in the street.

Fifty Shades of Parody

Typically, I feel the need to try something before I judge it. Partly so I can feel fair in my opinion, but mostly so I have unfettered freedom to make catty comments. I read the entire Twilight series because I didn't want to be a hater out of ignorance-- I wanted to be a hater out of knowledge. And now, unfortunately, I have to live with the knowledge of Renesmee.

But thanks to Erin's review of Fifty Shades of Grey, I don't have to actually read the book to discover that it's a gigantic piece of shizz. I can skip right over the reading part and head straight for the Mockery Department, where all of the fun lives. And fortunately for me and my lazy pants, lots of people have already beat me to it!

So today, I present two of my fave videos inspired by the heinousness that is Fifty Shades of Grey. The first is from SNL, and while hilarious, it makes the false asumption that women are ashamed of reading this book. Uh, they SHOULD BE, but most of them are not. Sadly.

 

 

This next video is a parody that still strikes eerily close to the actual source material. Which is why it's hysterical, obvs.

 

 

I have a feeling that "do sex" is going to be inducted into the FYA Lexicon v. v. soon.

Got an awesome Grey video or snarky post to share? Leave 'em in the comments.

P.S. Does anyone else wish Brunch Magazine was a real thing because HELLO DREAM JOB?
