Tag: The Hunger Games Parody
Though I don’t remember where, I recently read someone’s comment wondering why there wasn’t a Hunger Games parody of Lana Del Rey’s “Video Games” and I thought to myself “Yea, good point. Why isn’t there a parody?”. Lo and behold today I come across this video that was posted yesterday of Second City’s Holly Laurent doing a pretty good Lana Del Rey impression. How lucky is that!
I think my favorite lyric from this would have to be “A pita is a pouch of bread, but that’s his name”. As always, what do you think of this parody? Do you have a favorite lyric?

We previously mentioned The Hunger Games parody The Hunger But Mainly Death Games novel that will be released Nov 15, 2011, written by Aaron Geary and John Bailey Owen. Now they have released the book trailer, which made me laugh out loud, and you can download the first chapter for free! Here is an excerpt from that first chapter, a conversation between Bratniss and Greta:
“You know, all this talk of the Hunger But Mainly Death Games is making
me wonder what it would be like to kill a person,” I say. “I’m not sure I could do
“I have a feeling you’d be fine,” Greta replies. “You just killed an entire
family of squirrels with a single ninja star.”
“But killing a person is different.”
“You just picked up a venomous snake, swung it around to break its spine,
and used it to lasso another snake, and now you’re eating that snake raw.”
True enough. But all the same, something inside me whispers that if I ever
had to turn my mustard gas gun on a person, I simply wouldn’t be able to.
Mustard gas costs upwards of one wood chip. No way I’m paying that much to kill
only a single human being.
I’m looking forward to reading more!
