Amy Schumer Lampoons One Direction In Hilarious Parody Clip: Watch
Amy Schumer is so hot right now. She’s so hot she’s got a band of super-cute boys fussing over her in a hilarious new sketch that pokes fun at manufactured music… and manufactured people.
In the video which aired overnight on Inside Amy Schumer, a mock four-piece sing and dance their way into her life, with the honest-to-goodness claim that she’s beautiful just the way she is. It’s all suspiciously close to One Direction’s hit “What Makes You Beautiful." It's no surprise the comedian would go to that well; she has history with 1D fans.
One lad offers, “You’re perfect and I think you should know. You don’t need no lipstick, you don’t need no blush, ‘cause you’ve got that inter-natural glow.” Another croons, “you’re beautiful and who cares what they think, now wash that lovely face off in the sink.” And “girl you don’t need make-up, you’re perfect when you wake up, just walk around like that all day."
They enthusiastically urge her to “wipe it off “(yeah). When she appears fresh as a daisy, the boys change their tune to, “just put it on” (yeah) and they retrieve all the makeup she’s just dumped in the trash.
It’s a slick parody with all the essentials from the land of bubblegum pop: cute boys with nice haircuts making synchronized moves. And loads of cheesy dialog. “Please listen girl,” one warns, “what we’re trying to say, just get up an hour earlier and you can make yourself much girlier.” And like all good jokes, this one has a punchline. Wait for the big reveal at the end. Watch Comedy Central's "Cool With It" clip below (it comes in at 6.40).
