    Hahahaha! These are great LB.

    Gosh I like them all. If I had to choose? I say the Cheeseburger because it had a lot more depth then K.

    • littlebells November 19, 2012 at 3:52 PM #

      Yes, the Cheeseburger one is one of my favorites as well. hahaha!!! 🙂

    Wow. If “imitation is the sincerest form of flattery” then the Twilight franchise was even more successful than I thought.

    • littlebells November 19, 2012 at 3:55 PM #

      Well CR, it was successful in being one of the crappier franchises, if not THE crappiest. I already have friends who have seen BD2 and plan to see it 2 or 3 more times before it leaves theaters. I think because I have been so involved with the behind the scenes look with PR and fuaxmances, plus a taste for quality work, I am jaded and cynical about the franchise. But then I can’t be the only one who feels this way because there are so many parodies. Right now it’s #1 at the BO but only has a 48% from RT. Also it’s including money from it’s Thursday PM showings, which I don’t think Summit should include because that’s not a weekend.

        Sorry, I did not mean to make you ill.

        Not only did all of those people bother to study Twilight, but they found similar costumes, environments, and frequently found similar looking actors etc. Many practiced karaoke. Some created songs. Many submitted to being choreographed. All were filmed and placed on the internet.

        I just can’t believe that. I’m still wondering what I missed to inspire that kind of celebration.

        LB & CR-Looking on the bright side. What we can say given all the parodies? Consumers are more vocal about what they don’t like and we can thank Twilight for that…: )

    I like this Twilight parody for the funny voices. Hahahaha!

    • Comic Relief November 20, 2012 at 10:40 AM #

      Maybe the French film industry and or viewing public hates the US film industry and or viewing public, (after Twilight maybe we shouldn’t blame them).

      In the scene with Edward and Bella in his bedroom, shouldn’t we be hearing Debussy’s “Clair De Lune?”

      It’s hard for me to believe Summit would allow them to replace a classic with that Banjo driven folk song. Nothing wrong with it per se but I thought the scene was about describing how mature and sophisticated Edward is (contrary to his appearance). We laugh at them and their way of laughing about us may be that we are unsophisticated musically.

      I guess this must be a parody, because this seems like this may not the official French version of the movie.

    Here’s another.

  5. littlebells November 19, 2012 at 8:18 PM #

    Ok, so I watched the trailer spoof again with the lips. HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!! I love it best when they say, “Dakooootaa Faaniiing”. HAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!

    CR, Yes, the fact that people have studied the films, costumes, scenery, etc…to make these spoofs does show that it does have a fan base, but like OB pointed out, consumers are more vocal about what they like and don’t like.

    • Comic Relief November 20, 2012 at 11:17 AM #

      LB,

      On this site, we’ve said Twilight is all about a “not very smart loner (with low self-esteem) who meets a manipulative monster who has the self control to avoid immediately murdering her to wait for her to commit suicide so he can have an eternal death mate. Yes this is one of the softest slowest horror movies ever written or seen in theatres, but it does succeed at being horror.

      I guess I’m not sure these parodies communicate what I just claimed, as much as they seem to enjoy Bella’s exceptional stupidity and Edward’s brilliantly charming cruelty.

      To me it seems those qualities I just mentioned are far more intoxicating than the fact Bella has far more options than Stephanie Meyer sees for her.

  6. Open Book November 19, 2012 at 11:56 PM #

    IMO the reason these parodies are so abundant because not every consumer agrees with the majority of consumers who support these books and films. Sure u could say the parodies are flattering but the vast amount of disdain (for the protagonist) goes beyond a simple dislike but outright contempt. Perhaps the parodies give more credence to the following questions than we like to admit. What does Twilight say about young women’s taste in literature and films? How do women view their self-worth? Do young women find it more appealing to use their minds or physical attributes? How are young women going to be competitive leaders if they don’t challenge themselves mentally?

    • Comic Relief November 20, 2012 at 11:20 AM #

      OB,

      OK, if your claiming these parodies are (veiled) protest, I guess that tongue in cheek rebelliousness is still rejection but these actors seem unbelievably appreciative. I may be blind.

      Maybe I’m reading the whole thing wrong? It seems to me that young and mature adults (actors, producers, studio heads, fans) enjoy this series. Everyone outside of this demographic seems either unsure or jaded.

        The Elders React was kinda all over the place but fun to watch. More than a few really couldn’t give a flying hoot about the medias influence over teens today. One of them kept referring to when they paid 25 cents to see a film. Come on! The stakes are much higher for teens than in the 1930’s. Don’t u think!

        • Comic Relief November 20, 2012 at 8:31 PM #

          I agree.

    It’s right there in the prior post, but since it did not show here it is again.

    • Open Book November 20, 2012 at 6:04 PM #

      This is wonderful CR! In the Teen React video it was interesting to hear the young girls give their opinion. I was quite impressed.

      • Comic Relief November 20, 2012 at 7:19 PM #

        I fear for the teens, if they have low self-esteem they will look to emulate their immediate elders. Yet some of the ones in this video seem to have minds of their own, this should make us feel encouraged and relieved that not every one is so impressionable.

    Hello everyone!

    This is an amazing article! So many funny videos! I have lot’s too but I can’t remember where they all where and I didn’t save them. 😦 I’ll go looking for some!

    • Open Book November 20, 2012 at 8:04 PM #

      Yes! Ozzie u must share your favorite parodies. I know they are great!

  9. Comic Relief November 20, 2012 at 8:05 PM #

    Ozzie and OB,
    Please tell me had either of you ever heard of a vampire having sex before Twilight? At the most, I remember people talking about vampire seductiveness and having sexual appetites prior to Twilight but not much else.

    • ozzie20 November 20, 2012 at 8:08 PM #

      Hi CR!

      I can’t honestly remember! Surely there must have been?

      • Comic Relief November 20, 2012 at 8:22 PM #

        Today it seems like vampires always had sex but I think Edward made the whole idea common place.

    • Open Book November 20, 2012 at 8:15 PM #

      Hmm! Let me think? I know I’ve seen it done before Twilight. Give me a second to look.

      • Comic Relief November 20, 2012 at 8:23 PM #

        Tick tock…

        • Comic Relief November 20, 2012 at 8:24 PM #

          I have to be honest with you the more I think about Edward the more I
          hate him. Not like an obvious villains like Loki, or the Joker. Edward
          is way too insidious for that. Think about it he bit Bella in the
          first movie,….

          • Comic Relief November 20, 2012 at 8:25 PM #

            …..then waited four movies before he had her for lunch,
            (supposedly trying to save her after the child bearing stunt). What a
            creep and a leech.

                Hmmmm,

                Mrs. Book,

                I would call that obsession, lust, seduction,…

                Physically, I was talking about the “bump and grind.”

                • Open Book November 20, 2012 at 8:44 PM #

                  OMGosh! CR…….I think u need a time out. This is about parodies. U are way off topic. LOL!!

                  • Comic Relief November 20, 2012 at 8:56 PM #

                    What I’m trying to say is the parodies are missing the point. Seduction-wise Edward is a hurricane level manipulator and murderer.

                    He even fooled the people doing the parodies, funny as many of them are.

                    • Open Book November 20, 2012 at 9:04 PM #

                      Yes! But the protagonist is Bella not Edward. The fact the story is told from Bella’s perspective. Edward is her creation, what she is imagining. So in truth she’s the manipulator and seductress not Edward.

                    • Open Book November 20, 2012 at 9:08 PM #

                      To put it plainly. Bella’s the F**** up one not Edward.

        • Open Book November 20, 2012 at 8:27 PM #

          Here’s a great list. Although, some I don’t agree with.

          • Comic Relief November 20, 2012 at 8:35 PM #

            OB,

            Great list, yet I feel the same way you do.

            I’m not sure Edward isn’t the most deviant murderer in horror history.
            • Fans were willing to wait for four movies to see him murder Bella.
            • Bella was so under his spell she willingly agreed.
            • Even Jacob (his sworn enemy) was willing to sit around to see him do it

          • ozzie20 November 20, 2012 at 9:11 PM #

            Until next year when Edward’s version is released. I read the leaked chapters (there on S. Meyers site) and I swear it goes from him hating her for smelling so good to him loving her because Alice says so. It’s as quick as that. No plot development at all. And him watching her sleep… it’s even more creepy from his point of view. Urgh!

      Speaking of Edward, has anyone ever organized a high school musical cast to seduce (and murder) one woman before?

      Carlyle: Sweet yet pasty high school doctor
      Esseme: Pleasant suburban wife
      Edward: This generation’s Darth Vader for intellectually challenged women
      Rosalee: Crazy cheerleader stereotype
      Emmett: Stupid yet friendly High school jock
      Alice: Class president
      Jasper: Class Geek

      When Edward leaves in “New Moon” where did the family go. Edward was setting up act five so none of them were needed.

      Even Hannibal Lector wasn’t that manipulative

        yes, HIS name was Elizabeth. That’s what my daughter insisted we call him. He lived in our backyard for the last three days. Free range, corn fed, steroid free, super friendly. I honest to goodness had to have a heart to heart with the bird before we killed it because I’d gotten use to seeing him walking around our backyard and waking us up at 7 in the morning. We are going to deep fry it tomorrow! (Celebrating a day early) I did video tape the event of the year. My kids were the only grandchildren who didnt cry. I breed weirdos and crazies. What can I say? 🙂
