So I have need to write about how I put together my Jeremy Kyle remix video, with a Harvard referencing system…
Let’s see. I started by just grabbing a load of clips from youtube. I had a vague idea of what I wanted to to with the material but I knew most of the thinking would be done as I worked.
What I didn’t know was that I would be referencing other pop culture references as I progressed.
The first thing any viewer is likely to notice is the freeze frame faces.
This ends the majority of the sketches in the video.
I took this right out of Eric Andres playbook.
NOTE: Clip ends at 11:58
It is a fresh way to make parody of someone’s overzealous reaction to something many find benign. This exaggeration is what brings the lulz.
That could be crossed with various pop culture references, one example would be Call of Duty’s Captain Price with ‘Mission Failed, we’ll get em next time’.
This would be used to highlight the poor effort someone has made, or the subject can be matched with the tone of the phrase, once again delivering humour through exaggerated reaction to something.
Another thing I gone and done is sonic.
Sonic is a hot meme right now and it’s meme stock has never been higher. Anyone running quickly can be paired with the theme music from Green Hill Zone 1. That is concluded by an over the top hit sound, and the sonic hit sound with the rings jumping all over.
The Seinfeld theme is another recognisable theme, and another hot one in todays meme world. Once again, you guessed it, it sources it’s humour from being over the top. Used in this case to highlight the lowbrow humour often employed on the show. This was further paired with samples of studio audience laughing and applauding.
