    Default AMV Minis Challenge #2: Parody Song

    AMV Minis Challenge #2: Parody Song
    Entry Period: June 26 - July 23

    For the 2nd AMV Minis Challenge, you will need to create a video using a parody song!
    This means that the song you choose should itself be copying music or lyrics from another song. Original comedy songs would not be appropriate in this challenge.

    Of course, the undisputed king of parody songs is none other than Weird Al Yankovic, so maybe his work might be a good starting point. However, most of Weird Al's songs have been done to death in the AMV world, so if you value originality, I would suggest branching out to parody songs created by other artists.

    Before creating your video, please be sure to read over the following page, which details the rules and explains how to submit your video:
    http://www.amvhell.com/showthread.php?27304
    When submitting your video, please write the song that is being parodied in the comments field of the entry form.

    Funny enough, Weird Al Yankovic AMVs were the reason I ever started watching anime in the first place

    I went to see him live 2 weeks ago
    'Twas grief enough to think mankind
    All hollow, servile, insincere;
    But worse to trust to my own mind
    And find the same Corruption there.

    I see him live every year.


    What makes a man? Is it the woman in his arms? Just cause she has big titties? Or is it the way he fights every day?
    ....No, it's probably the titties.

    I take it Bad Lip Reading songs like Russian Unicorn wouldn't count then, seeing as they're basically orginal songs based on other songs Music Videos.

    I think that would count as a parody, seeing as it's based off an actual song, even if it is only the music video.

    Parody of a song's video, wouldn't be a parody of the song's music or lyrics.
    I have the simplest tastes. I am always satisfied with the best.

    Hello, my name is SuperNerdJohn! I'm new here, but I've been a fan of AMV Hell/Minis for a while now. I've always had thoughts about contributing and this challenge sounds like a lot of fun!

    Man, only if I seen this sooner. Well I'll just look at the next one, I may try making one but only having one day does not sound good.
