What’s the worst possible thing you could think of happening to your favorite Best Picture nominees for this upcoming weekend’s 82nd annual Academy Awards ceremony? For me, the thought of the cast of MTV’s Jersey Shore spoofing them would be pretty high up on that list.
Many Oscar ceremonies over the years have featured spoofs of the nominated films — the most famous of such were presented by Billy Crystal during his many brilliant hosting gigs. Well, apparently someone thought that these kids from Jersey Shore could bring some similar laughs to the table with their own spoofs, and a handful of them were recording for use on George Lopez’s Lopez Tonight show on TBS.
Click on over to the other side to watch a couple of these parodies…if you dare. Included below you’ll find The Hurt Locker and Inglourious Basterds, but you can also head over to TBS’s YouTube page for a second Basterds and Avatar.
Personally, I see this as a doubly-evil experiment. When Jersey Shore and Lopez Tonight were on the way and promotions aired often on TV, both of them looked painfully bad to me, and sometimes even made me and many others angry that this kind of crap was actually being financed and produced.
I’m not sure about you, but I think “fist pumping” and the kind of constant narcissistic jelly that these people ooze should be made universally illegal.
These videos certainly don’t help their cause, but you can see for yourself.
