These fans are taking it to a new level—upstaging their heroes with remakes of their music videos. And we gotta say, sometimes we’d rather watch the fan version than the original. Check out these 10 creative fans who remake shot-for-shot or totally reimagine vids by Beyonce, Sia, Taylor Swift, and more.

    This dude appears to have lost a bet and thus had to re-create this instant classic vid. But this is pretty good!

    Snap! This is a lil’ NSFW, and with three more butts, better than the original if we do say so.

  • “Hips Don’t Lie” by Shakira

    Oxford’s all-male all-cutie a cappella group does well by Shakira.
