Please, Make More Brokeback Mountain Parodies


Dear Citizens of the Internet,Brokeback_tothefuture

Over the course of the past few weeks, in the wake of the buzz surrounding the film Brokeback Mountain, there have been a flood of parody trailers featuring male characters from other recognizable films, cut together with the music and tone of Brokeback’s official trailer, thereby implying a previously non-existant homosexual relationship.  They’re hilarious, no matter how many times I see them.  In fact, you can find no less than TWENTY-THREE individual parodies at this site, all of which are ostensibly the same amazing joke, over and over again.

I come to you today with but a humble request: make more of these parody trailers, please!  Every time I hear those classic guitar notes, I am overcome with a feeling of warmth and comfort, for I know that I am about to be treated to two minutes of sheer hilarity.  The guys from Rush Hour, as gays?  You bet!  Matt and Ben from Good Will Hunting, but in a love story?  Yes, please! 

In order to help you out, here are some of my ideas for Brokeback Mountain Parody Trailers I would like to see:

Daniel LaRusso and Johnny Lawrence from The Karate Kid – Because everyone knows that Karate Kid references = Internet comedy gold.

Gary and Wyatt from Weird Science – Because they seemed pretty gay for each other and also, remember how awesome the 80’s were?

Andy Samberg and Chris Parnell from Lazy Sunday – Could you imagine the Internet phenomenon that would result from the unholy marriage of the Chronicles of Narnia Rap and the homoerotic hilarity of a Brokeback parody?  Your computer would explode.

William Holden and Ernest Borgnine from The Wild Bunch – Look, if you’re gonna make a "gay cowboy" movie, try getting yourself a couple of real cowboys.  Besides, who wouldn’t want to see an implicit romance revolving around William Holden’s rough, but tender love for Ernest Borgnine?

The possibilities are endless.  All I know is, I simply CANNOT GET ENOUGH of these wacky trailers.  Feel free to leave your suggestions for parody trailers in the comments section!
