Perhaps the most amazing thing about the Internet's answer to Seth MacFarlane's "We Saw Your Boobs" Oscars song isn't that someone created a parody video, but that they did it so quickly. Just two days after MacFarlane shocked and awed critics with his widely-panned musical name-check of actresses in the audience who'd been topless in movies (Meryl Streep, Naomi Watts, Angelina Jolie, Anne Hathaway, Halle Berry, Nicole Kidman, and Kate Winslet), Kevin Gisi posted a spoof aimed at male actors. It's called, awesomely, "We Saw Your Junk."
Here's what Gisi wrote with his YouTube posting: "I figured if we're going to objectify women, we sure as heck better objectify men too!" Oh, and it DOES.
MacFarlane's "We Saw Your Boobs" song earned plenty of backlash, thanks in no small part to the fact that he essentially crowed over seeing skin-baring performances from The Accused, Boys Don't Cry, Monster's Ball, and more. Apparently "We Saw Your Boobs (In That Gritty Film in Which You Bravely Depicted a Story of Rape and Sexual Assault)" didn't have quite the same ring to it. Oh, and don't forget how he called out Scarlett Johansson, not because she went topless for a role, but because her private photos were stolen from her phone.
"We Saw Your Junk" doesn't quite make up for MacFarlane's tone-deaf performance, but at least it's legitimately funny. Sung by Kevin Gisi, an engineer at Mashable.com, and set to the tune of MacFarlane's original song, "We Saw Your Junk" references Bruce Willis, Harvey Keitel, Jason Segel, Michael Fassbender, Kevin Bacon, Richard Gere, and more.
Here's the clip:
Hee. I particularly love the reference to Mark Wahlberg's massive prosthetic shlong in Boogie Nights.
Bravo to Kevin Gisi for his light-hearted take on what's become a pretty volatile topic. Plus, he's actually got some decent pipes! Maybe the Academy could consider him for next year's hosting duties -- I'm guessing the position is wiiiiide open.
What do you think of the "We Saw Your Junk" version? Which one was funnier?
