Mary Poppins gets political in Funny or Die bit starring Kristen Bell

In a new Funny or Die shortFrozen star Kristen Bell plays iconic nanny Mary Poppins—and she performs a version of “A Spoonful of Sugar,” but instead of trying to coax children into cleaning their room, the perpetually cheery caregiver is trying to coax the government into raising the minimum wage.

50 Cent parodies 'Maleficent' in faux Disney trailer -- VIDEO

Maleficent, 50 Cent — it’s a match made in pun heaven.

The rapper stopped by Jimmy Kimmel Live to premiere a trailer for what he jokingly called his latest project, a spoof on Disney film Maleficent featuring 50 Cent as the title villain. “This one ain’t going to no Redbox,” 50 told Kimmel.

50 Cent replaces Angelina Jolie in the clip as Maleficent — sorry, Malefiftycent — and, of course, makes sure to mention his biggest claim to fame: “I’ve been shot nine times, I’m not afraid of no little white girl.”

In the video, Holmes’ Sherlock makes assumptions about James Watson’s (Matt McCarthy) life based on things like the kind of phone he has and the shoes he’s wearing which all end up being completely wrong. Maybe he was just having a bad day?

Check out the parody from The Pete Holmes Show below:

In terms of flexibility, Channing Tatum proved he has plenty in Magic Mike. But the former Sexiest Man Alive (now that guy with tattoos has the title) got into character for the upcoming sequel to show off his own epic abilities.

'Breaking Bad' spoof: Walt gives Hank a CD of his ... skating skills?

Who would’ve thought that Walt’s shocking confession on Sunday’s episode of Breaking Bad would send fans on a spoof-making craze? But one thing’s for sure: We’re not complaining, because how else would we get this equal-parts-ridiculous-and-amazing-but-mostly-just-amazing video of Hank and Marie’s shocked faces watching Bryan Cranston show off his best skate skills?
