Boys Who Mock 'Girls': Local Filmmakers Spoof HBO Hit Series
In an attempt to show that young women aren't the only ones who struggle with being young, white, creatively inclined and in their 20s, a pair of L.A. filmmakers have released a spoof of HBO's "Girls" appropriately titled "Boys."
The video, which was uploaded to YouTube today, looks and feels just like "Girls," only on the opposite coast and with a male cast. Based in L.A., the main character -- mimicking Lena Dunham's Hannah -- is an aspiring filmmaker who refuses to work for more than 30 hours a week or take a job that involves "standing for very long." There's also a hypersexualized Brit to parody Jemima Kirke's Jessa, and there's even a nod to the nepotism of which "Girls" was accused insofar as its casting.
The video has apparently made its way in front of some important eyeballs -- none other than Judd Apatow tweeted about it, saying "That made me laugh a few times.It got me".
