First up: confession. I have a deep connection with The Parody News Network. Not only am I friends with the awesome creator, fellow author Stephen Lomer, but I act and occasionally write for this series as well. Honestly, its the most fun you can have without running away to the circus.
Briefly, the Parody News Network asks the question: what would happen if the things that happened in movies were reported on the news (with a few jokes and gags thrown in?). And that launched hundreds of episodes, ranging from the classics like Singing in the Rain to Downton Abbey and Saw. There's a new episode each Friday (I don't know how Stephen does it, but he does!) and they're all super fun, bite-sized comedy goodness.
So why do I bring it up now? Because it's Christmas and every year, a new crop of Christmas movie classics fall subject to the wit of the Parody News Network team. There's the Hallmark episode, A Christmas Carol, Rudolph, and, yes, Die Hard is on the holiday list. My personal favorite is White Christmas (posted below) - but that may only be because A. Its acted to perfection and B. I wrote it (and there are sooo many inside jokes!)
PNN not only does Christmas, but movies the whole year round and Halloween is an especially good time to check them out. (My favorite character to play is Lenore, a Goth girl with no personality to spare.) But this holiday season, do yourself a favor and check out one of these videos. It'll give you a laugh and a lift.
