I’m on a Cow! The Old Spice Parodies
Ah, parody. The simplest form of humor that everyone seems to screw up. I mean seriously, all you’re doing is aping the original and tossing in a few rearranged words of your own! Parrots and myna birds live for this stuff! Also babies and kids! Alas, very few people have truly mastered the fine art of parody, and only one is the true Guru: Weird Al Yankovic.

The ad in and of itself is a riff on others of its ilk so, parody was inevitable. But what is a good parody? Hell, what even passes as a decent parody? Well, most of these, I’d say.
