Brittani’s Video Party: Emma Stone #Hashtags Haviland Stillwell’s “Royals” Parody

Header by Rory Midhani


Haviland Stillwell released a video for her single “MKE Maximum Energy.” In the song, she insists you watch her move and this video gives you that opportunity so thank you to her. The single is now available on iTunes!

“Typecast” is a “Royals” parody song about Tess Paras, writer and star of the video, being fed up with playing the sidekick to her white counterparts. The video also features Haneefah Wood and Ayana Hampton with a short appearance by Mo Welch.

Emma Stone is super on brand in this video in which she starts crying because Mel B. left her a video message. She just really loves the Spice Girls, ok?

#Hashtag is a new Tello webseries that follows the love lives of two technology-obsessed best friends in Chicago. It’s written by and starring Caitlin Bergh and Laura Zak.

A 25-year-old Catholic nun brought down the house on The Voice Italy with Alicia Keys’ “No One.” These videos are always so funny to me because it’s like if you follow certain paths, it becomes borderline offensive to be good at stuff. It shouldn’t be THAT big a deal that a nun can sing? But who has time for my hangups, every part of this video is entertaining so just enjoy it.

This is Brittani’s Video Party, where I bring some of the “best” videos from all over my internet together so we can clap, cry or deconstruct. Have you ever gotten to a video and it already has 33 million views and you wonder where the heck have you been? Well I’m here to help you so that you see it when it only has 32 million views. Aim low, world. Aim low.

Brittani Nichols is a Los Angeles based comedy person. When she's not tweeting about white people or watching television, she's probably eating pizza. Actually, she's probably doing all three of those things concurrently and when she's not doing THAT, she's sleeping. Brittani also went to Yale and feels weird about mentioning it but wants you to know.

  1. That Typecast video was awesome, and the entrance of Mo Welch was timely because of your recent coverage of her on here.

  2. I had previously seen a couple of articles about the nun on the Italian Voice, but never bothered watching the video until now. And, I’m so glad that I did. That was absolutely delightful, every bit of it. She’s too adorable. “I am waiting for Pope Francesco to call me on the phone.” I snorted

    • Yes! I had avoided it for a few days because I also share your hangups, Brittani. But I’m glad I finally watched it – she’s adorable in every way!

    • Rock on Sister, Rock on. She was really really good. Crazy good. I was :O the whole time.

  3. Thanks, Brittani! FUN FACT – I photo doubled Emma Stone in “Zombieland” ! #fullcircle

  4. Is it just me, or does Sister Cristina Scuccia look like Ellen Page’s long lost Italian twin?!
