5 fun YouTube parodies of MMVA artists
Since the MMVAs celebrate the art of music videos, it seems appropriate to take a moment and acknowledge the art of music video parodies. While any kid with a webcam can belt out a joke tune, (and many, many do) some YouTubers take their silly music videos very seriously.
Below, we’ve rounded up fives parodies of MMVA nominees and performers we think might make you laugh. For the real deal, check out the MMVAs this Sunday, June 15 at 9E/6P on Much, CTV and CTV GO.
1. Lisbug – Lorde’s Royals
YouTuber Lisbug took on Lorde’s Royals from the perspective of a very spoiled and very cute puppy.
2. @Seinfeld2000 – Arcade Fire’s Here Comes the Nighttime
There’s something profoundly mesmerizing about @Seinfeld2000’s mash-up of Seinfeld clips set to Arcade Fire’s Here Comes the Nighttime. The video recounts George and Susan’s relationship, though they’re referred to in the subtitles as Garge and Suzette. It’s so good.
3. SVS Productions – Drake’s Worst Behaviour
There are a lot of Drake parodies on YouTube and they range on varying levels of quality. We like this one from SVS Productions mostly because it seems to be a group of cute, college-aged dudes who wanted to find an excuse to dress up like Urkel.
4. Brittani Louise Taylor – Ariana Grande’s Problem
On a girlier note, popular YouTuber Brittani Louise Taylor does her own version of MMVA performer Ariana Grande’s Problem in the video below. It’s about how exciting it is to stay at a hotel. You know, ’cause you get tiny bottles of shampoo and free pens and stuff.
5. @chomikk – Selena Gomez’s Come and Get It
Selena Gomez is nominated for International Video of the Year for Come and Get It and YouTuber @chomikk, who makes all sorts of music video parodies, rewrote the song to be about his creepy owl statue. These lyrics seem like they were scribbled stream-of-consciousness while drunk, but it kinda works.

On the last episode of Pretty Little Liars (watch here), we saw Aria go down the world’s longest ladder and into the belly of Radley. So it wasn’t just a coincidence that Sara Harvey booked the same hotel room that once acted as Charlotte’s prison! We didn’t think so. In this sneak peek of Tuesday’s […]
There are just some celebrity couples that we could never forget – even when they’ve broken up. Luckily, we can always remember them and keep then close in our hearts from the music that they’ve left behind. Ironically enough, most of these are love songs. These tracks get us feeling nostalgic about these past relationships we […]
We’re starting 2016 off with a new feature on the Much blog. Every Friday will be a Pop Quiz, but the fun kind, not the kind that makes you freeze in terror and curse yourself for spending three hours on YouTube instead of studying. This kind of quiz actually encourages YouTube viewing. We told you […]
Love is in the air this Valentine’s Day weekend, and if you’re spending it with your special boo AND have a romantic dinner planned AND he sends you roses at work AND gets you a diamond necklace from Charm Diamond Centres then you can stop reading right now that is so amazing! BUT if you’re […]
The NBA All-Star weekend is finally in full force!
