Watch Jimmy Kimmel’s Star-Studded Fake Movie Trailers From the Post-Oscars Special
In a slightly dazzling post-Oscars spectacular, Jimmy Kimmel and took to skewering Hollywood’s biggest night on his 9th annual ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live: After The Oscars’ special in the least offensive way possible – by asking some of the world’s biggest movie stars to poke fun at the seriousness of awards season by starring in some fake film trailers based on fictitious films populated by popular memes of the YouTube variety.
Not every attempt at turning some of the Internet’s best-known memes into its own movie worked out – a Joseph Gordon-Levitt-starring send-up of drug culture by way of meme titled ‘Baz Luhrmann’s David After Dentist: Double Rainbow: Oh My God! In 3D' was just plain weird more than anything – but there were some true gems, particularly his Keyboard Cat-inspired ‘Ameowdeus’ and the Meryl Streep- and Tom Hanks-starring ‘Bitman Begins,’ which pulled from the “Charlie Bit Me” video for its inspiration.
Kimmel’s cavalcade of stars was also impressive enough on its own, as the late night host managed to snag other names like Queen Latifah, Adam Driver, Barkhad Abdi, Mandy Patinkin, Ben Kingsley, Christoph Waltz, Gary Oldman, Kevin Spacey, Abbie Cornish, Catherine Zeta-Jones, Seth Rogen, and Samuel L. Jackson for a new spin on his annual movie-centric spoof. Take a look! (And which one is your favorite?)
