But what happens when Schoolhouse Rock gets combined with Star Wars? We get "Star Wars Rock," an awesome video by YouTube user OneMinuteGalactica that teaches us about adjectives. It has all the catchiness of a Schoolhouse tune minus the annoying animations, plus Luke Skywalker, Yoda, R2-D2, and all your other Star Wars favorites. And you thought learning couldn't be fun.

One of our favorite moments at least year's Oscars wasn't actually at the Oscars — it was the well-timed release of Jimmy Kimmel's send-up of the entire film industry, "Movie: The Movie." Packed with dozens of superstar cameos, the viral clip lampooned everything wrong with Hollywood to hilarious effect.
And now, for this year's Oscars, Kimmel has released the inevitable YouTube follow-up, "Movie: The Movie: 2V."
But can even a parody avoid the lame sequel curse? Get More »
Is Bruce Willis's skin really dry, or are we seeing things?
Actually, animator Lee Hardcastle has gone and turned John McClane into John McClay, reimagining the "Die Hard" franchise in claymation. Called "A Good Clay to Die Hard," the "Wallace & Gromit"-style take on Bruce Willis's classic action franchise makes blood, guts, and guns look incredibly pasty, although not without its share of action-packed, endlessly explosive sequences that doesn't stray from the original.
Plus, he's in Russia! That's right: John McClay's all up in the Motherland, and he's ready to nuke the sh*t out of it. (And, hey, if that's not your thing, look up "Creature Comforts" on YouTube instead, and stick with talking zoo animals.)
We've all been there: you're sifting through your Netflix queue and, eager for a suggestion, you click on the selection of recommended flicks. And then it happens: your past comes back to haunt you. Netflix knows what you've been up to, and it's ...not good. Sure, you can tell the rest of the world you just finished watching "I Am Love" or something, but who are you kidding? You totally just finished "Porky's 2" for the millionth time.
In this sketch from UCB Comedy, the equally beloved-and-feared Netflix queue proves a power that reaches far beyond into the queue and into your social life. If you didn't think that "Doctor Who," Kevin James, and that, er, morally questionable foreign flick about a set of conjoined twins could burn your relationship to the ground, think again.
You've been 'flixed!
Who knew the South Korean Air Force had a flair for theatrics? A group of soldiers have created a parody of "Les Miserables," centering on a…err…slightly altered story line of the popular musical/Oscar-nominated film. Jean Valjean, a soldier on a South Korean airbase, is condemned to shovel snow when all he really wants to do is hang with his girlfriend, Cosette. YES, we know, Cosette is practically Jean Valjean’s daughter in the real thing…but let’s look past that minor flaw.
The video beings with "Dig Down," sung by the soldiers of the 22nd Fighter Wing as they shovel away their souls. This is a scene that anyone can empathize with who has been forced to spend a snow day digging out the driveway while the neighbor kids go sledding. The parody also features variations on "I Dreamed a Dream," "On My Own," and "Red and Black": a post- break-up anthem in which the air force boys convince Valjean that the single life is better.
A little silly, but well-produced and entertaining…we think you’ll dig it.
"Django Uncahined" is one of the most controversial films of the year for one simple reason: Any movie about slavery is, by default, one of the most controversial films of the year. Because, you know, slavery.
But any time there is controversy, that means there's also a great opportunity for comedy. And now the folks at Tomm Fondle have have put together their own response to "Django Unchained," which spoofs not the film itself, but rather society's reaction to the film.
So check it out. Because while some things are worth feeling guilty about, but you should never feel guilty about having a good laugh.
The connection between those sassy "Mean Girls" and the downtrodden of "Les Miserables" is a lot stronger than Amanda Seyfried's long, blonde locks. Oh yes. Now that Tina Fey's trying to re-work the zingers of her old high school clique comedy into song lyrics (go Tina, go!), the comparisons are becoming oh-so-clear.
We smell a crossover. Get More »
"The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey" and "The Hunger Games" have more in common than may first meet the eye: themes of hunger (those hobbits and their second breakfasts!), adventure and, of course, grave danger. Get More »
When you're a hobbit, there's a certain routine that brings comfort to your every day life. You know, get up for elevenses, comb your feet, argue with that fool of a Took. Same old same old, right? Which is why it is so disconcerting when a bunch of rowdy dwarves randomly show up in the trailer for "The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey."
But if you thought those dwarves were rowdy, wait until you get a load of the party animals in "The Hobbit: An Unexpected Parody." Get More »
The gang from "Extra Butter, Please" have a twisted imagination... and we love it.
In honor of "The Hunger Games" being released on home video, they've come up with a backyard version of the Arena, starring homeless men (worry not — they're actors in real life) as Tributes. We can't promise trees on fire or muttations, but we can promise laughs.
Watch and see for yourself.
And, if you think it's funny, be sure to check out more episodes of "Extra Butter, Please."
