Of all the greatest ideas for making fan videos and whacking them up on YouTube, the two that are often the most rewarding are based on the same basic principle. You take some footage of something familiar – a hit TV show or movie, or a band playing a song – and then change the soundtrack for maximum hurrah.
For the bands, there’s the fine and noble (and always, always funny) tradition of the shred video, and for the movies and TV shows, there’s bad lip-reading.
Take this high-concept, high-delivery reswizzling of ‘Game of Thrones,’ in which the sword and sorcery epic is recast as the trailer for a dumb and gaseous movie about a medieval theme park (and definitely NOT a renaissance fair).
It is so good, it’s practically a work of art. Or a worker fart, depending on how your lips move:
