All Indian Bakchod, also known as AIB, is one of India’s edgiest and most hilarious stand-up comedy groups. The group, apparently, uploaded a parody of Dhoom 3 on YouTube only to receive a stern warning from Yash raj Films asking them to take down the video.
So what is a small group of five youngsters supposed to do when they’re staring down the barrel of a cash-rich entertainment conglomerate’s legal department. This!
As the guys point out in their parody set to We Are Young, the popular song by Fun feat. Janelle Monáe, the art of parody, satire or spoofing is not new to the entertainment industry. They briefly show Screen Junkies’ Honest Trailers as an example, a channel that I’m personally addicted to. Screen Junkies regularly tears apart big Hollywood movies from Warner Bros, Universal Studios or 20th Century Fox, and the studios all take it in good humor. However, it seems like we in India still have some way to go to develop our sense of humor.
Kudos to these guys for standing up and showing us the way!
