I don’t always find parody videos like this one as funny as most people seem to. I just have a rarified sense of humor, I guess. This one, though, made me smile. Jason from the FRIDAY THE 13TH franchise singing a song for his mother, or his fans, a take on LL Cool J’s “Mama Said Knock You Out”. The creation of The Merkins, I have to give props to the video for its cleverness and production values. Nicely done.
The Merkins are, it would seem, big ol’ Horror marks, since they’ve done quite a few parody tribute videos (some funnier than others, but that’s to be expected). They also play off the whole “mother” angle in their video riffing on Danzig’s “Mother”. It’s worth checking out just to see Jason in that wig. “All around you candlelight, and if you wanna kill them with me, I can show you how they die!” Beautiful.
If I were the one in charge, for one, they’d get to work on that next FRIDAY THE 13TH movie pronto. Actually, if I had my druthers, I’d be writing and directing it, so I *would* be the one in charge. (I’ve got a hella cool idea for it. Just sayin’.) And as the person calling the shots, I’d make sure The Merkins provided the soundtrack for the movie. A couuple’a songs, at any rate.
