By now, you've definitely seen one...or two...or a couple dozen YouTube videos parodying Nicki Minaj's sensational "Anaconda" video. The bootylicious vid broke the record for most views for a Vevo video in 24 hours and inspired loads of parodies that have gained thousands of views themselves.
From the professionally shot parodies on Ellen and SNL to those made by YouTube filmmakers, check out our ranking of the best "Anaconda" parodies. Watch the original below and see how the others fared.
From the sets to the costumes, this parody is the most similar visually to the original "Anaconda" vid, so props for that. The disses are pretty hilarious ("For some reason, there's a gym out in the jungle") and the vid takes a bizarre turn (Sir Mix-a-Lot takes revenge on Nicki for using his sample with a giant snake), but, honestly, we don't like how many times they call Nicki dumb.
Props to this girl for keeping it real about the current booty obsession ("Oh my gosh...we all have butts"), but it all comes off a little too haterific. We do like her suggestion, "Read a book, take a look / Much better than a butt that shook / Might even help you come up with a hook / Smart conversation, learn to cook."
How can you beat Ellen superimposing herself into Nicki's vid? It's hilarious and the comedian is working it...mostly. But even when she isn't, she's laughing right along with you.
This even gets Nicki's stamp of approval, so it wins no matter what. Watch below:
