(Note: video contains some profanity)
From the broke, self-important and relentlessly entertaining 20-somethings that brought you HBO’s runaway hit show Girls comes a parody that will knock you right out of your unpaid intern’s chair.
Even if you’re not an unpaid intern moonlighting as an aspiring filmmaker, we think you’ll find this Boys trailer uproariously funny. It pokes at Girls from every angle, swapping out Lena Dunham and her cohorts for their male counterparts as they take on that other “best city in the world,” Los Angeles.
Boys was created by a group of Funny or Die mainstays. It hit YouTube on Friday and almost immediately got a nod from the man upstairs, Judd Apatow. The executive producer of Girls tweeted a link to the video and lauded the send-up.
A playful jab at Girls’ cast of Hollywood darlings, Boys has a little nepotism of its own — the would-be show stars “Wolf Blitzer’s son, Bear Blitzer” and “Pat Benetar’s son, Patrick Benetar.” And of course, it wouldn’t be complete without the token neurotic virgin and wanton Brit. Basically, the whole gang is there and we’re eating it up.
If you’ve got sensitive ears, you might want to skip this one — boys wouldn’t be Boys without some profanity. That said, for fans of Girls, this farce is not to be missed.
