These days, it’s not hard to find a parody of every pop song on the radio. We’ve compiled our ten favorites for a hilarious collection of music videos. Enjoy!

10. “Dunkin’ Love”

This is great because first of all, it features a bearded man in a wig and dress with fabulous dance moves as Beyoncé, singing about his love for Dunkin’ Donuts. We’ve all been there. With beautiful lyrics like “I’ve been craving, I’ve been craving,” “Why can’t I have you on the west coast baby I want you, nah nah,” and “Open all night, loooooove,” this is parody gold. Keep doing your thing, Reggie White and Adrian Anchondo.

9. “A Character I Used to Know”

Game of Thrones fans know the anguish of becoming attached to a character, only to have them brutally ripped out of the casting the next episode. “A Character I Used to Know” parodies Gotye‘s “Somebody That I Used To Know” with awesome costumes. Also, check out how much the singer singing as Arya actually looks like her.

8. “Give A Kidney”

30 Rock took on a “We Are The World“-esque song called “Give A Kidney” with singers like Sheryl Crow, Adam Levine, Mary J. Blige, Norah Jones, Elvis Costello, and much more.

7. “Anaconda”

Ellen attempts Nicki Minaj‘s dance moves in “Anaconda.” While she isn’t parodying the song’s lyrics, she makes the choreography extremely comical.

6. “What Does My Girl Say”

SNL‘s Jay Pharoah and guest Kerry Washington parodies the annoyingly viral hit “The Fox (What Does The Fox Say?)” by Ylvis with “What Does My Girl Say.” The question is: why would he cheat on a girl as gorgeous as Kerry Washington?

5. “Blurred Bynes”

“Blurred Bynes” mocks all the shenanigans that happened with Amanda Bynes in the past year or two, while also featuring drag superstars Willam Belli, Vicky Vox, and Detox. The controversial Robin Thicke video of “Blurred Lines” has transformed into a commentary on the young star’s troubles.

4. “Blank Space”

Shane Dawson‘s “Blank Space” parody is raunchy, comical, disturbing, and captures the sudden obsession with Taylor Swift that popped up everywhere. Some call it dirty, others call it spot on.

A word of caution: it’s Dexter-esque and a bit NSFW, so be wary.

3. “Beauty and the Beat.”

Musical mastermind Todrick Hall takes on the hood version of Beauty and the Beast with “Beauty and the Beat.” If you’re trying to think of twin names, have you though about La-Washa and La-Drya?

2. “Dark Lord Funk”

“Dark Lord Funk” has Voldemort take place of Bruno Mars in this magical parody with xylophone and brass band playing the Harry Potter’s “Hedwig’s Theme.” His friends are Death Eaters with equally sickening moves.

1. “Amish Paradise.”

Finally, king of parodies Weird Al Yankovic takes the top spot with his classic, “Amish Paradise.” He pioneered the way for parodies and has made a career out of it. Long live the king!

      It is definitely dope. As a big HP fan, it’s pretty incredible.

    Tough to choose a best Weird Al track, but this is a good one.

    The Ellen dancing to “Anaconda” is gold!
