A Royals Parody Not Like The Others
The revenge of the diversity club.
OK, so the Royals parodies and covers are getting kind of old. But today, we saw this video that should be an exception. We found ourselves grinning at this because actor/writer Tess Paras has exactly the kind of cynical view toward the media industry that we do. The parody presents a fairly straightforward criticism of typecasting and token roles in Hollywood, but we especially liked the added submission to the dynamic, where none of the actors were surprised or excited about the role, but nonetheless perform “real interest” in it for the casting agent. Who will you have to pretend to be in order to get paid? Maybe this song will help answer that question.
Two thumbs up, Tess.
