Sherlock Parody by ‘The Hillywood Show’

The Hillywood Show just released their parody of Macklemore’s “Thrift Shop” to the tune of Sherlock. Although I’m almost sure the internet is going to share the ever loving hell out of this, I’m actually a slight bit disappointed. I loved the costumes, the sets (which I think are from the actual show itself, cool!), but the parody song itself could’ve used a bit of tweaking methinks.

The parody lyrics were just on the side of hammy, and oftentimes didn’t flow. It was distracting because while the video is wonderfully visually stimulating, I couldn’t really get into it because of the song itself. Just goes to show that while Weird Al makes this stuff look easy, parodies aren’t always just as good as their source material.

Still, check it out! It’s definitely worth the watch. And check out the other videos from the Hillywood ladies, they’re pretty hilarious.
