Thought these were very funny.
They all contain music.
Have you noticed a surplus in Muslim song parodies on YouTube in the last few weeks? Well chances are they’re related to each other.
What started out as a music video parody by Muslim Student Association (MSA) members at the University of California Davis has become the inspiration to a number of other videos by an unnecessary amount of other colleges. The UC Davis MSA’s “Repray”, a parody of Iyaz’s “Replay”, sparked UC Berkeley’s MSA to create a trilogy of parodies (featuring songs like “Party in the USA”, “Heartless”, and “Nothing On You"). It was a barrage of swapped-out song lyrics that no one saw coming or asked for.
The explosion of popularity that resulted from the UCB triple threat inspired a video by UCLA’s MSA and finally, all of the above inspired UCSD’s clumsy parody of “The Office”, ending with a late 80s styled hip hop ‘diss track’ (I wish I was making that up).
Suffice it to say, the videos are of varying degrees of quality. They range from hilarious and well done to excruciatingly difficult to watch. You be the judge.
