VIDEO: It’s Autostraddle’s “Real L Word” Season 2 Parody!

Well, we couldn’t help ourselves again. We probably have way more fun making these things than you guys do watching them (though I’m secretly hoping that’s semi-not the case). Our Real L Word season one parody was kind of a hit, especially with Nikki and Jill Weiss-Goldstein, who we love/is our target market. Just kidding. You guys are our target market. You know, the weirdos that don’t ever watch the actual show but you’ve read and enjoyed each one of Riese’s recaps. You!

We are aware that this is very late-coming. I mean, we showed the opening sequence back in February. Better late than never I say. We shot so much shit, so much you guys. Team ChillRoom Productions (Sarah Croce, Lauren Aadland, etc.) really went for it. And maybe we’ll edit some more stuff so we could just keep making fun of this show/ourselves/Ilene Chaiken.

Here’s the cast for the “Real (Enough) L Word Season 2 Parody” video:

Okay, so on with it. Pull up a chair and grab a beer because you have to commit at least 14 minutes to this, which I don’t think you’ll regret at all because you clicked on this article to begin with let’s be honest. Also, we’ve included some behind-the-scenes photos below too!

    Made my day! Actually kind of got me pumped for the new season. Now I won’t have to watch HBO’s Girls to feel good about myself in comparison.

    So, what I take away from this is that Kelsey drinks alot, and there’s something called a “Romi” that I really should avoid learning how to do.

    All Romi’s excuses for being late KILLED me: “all my Twitter fans came out” “I just died my hair, it was pink for a sec”.

    It was perfect.

    morgan, when you dumped out the box of chopsticks I died!

    Also f’ing hilarious–

    “i found this geode, i’m gonna make a bracelet” bahaha.
    *points to cat toy* “such a good idea for an earring”
    the free sperm scene… terrifying.

    and finally– what’s the song playing during the kelsey scene?

    genius, ladies. and the likeness of the characters is almost frightening.

    – jill’s facial expressions in the sperm-off are priceless
    – the alex-as-kelsey work montage made me LOL on several levels and dimensions
    – “92 minutes strong”

    JILL’S SLOW-MOTION RUNNING

    Seriously made my day. I started watching this in the corner of my lab today and then realized all the ‘fucking francine!’ utterances might not be so ideal. Whoooooops.

    Really fully so fucking happy that watching this video is an enjoyable experience for you guys. Cause I mean, you could hypothetically be throwing tomatoes at us instead? I appreciate you taking the time to leave your comments, feedback, and lolz.

      Pretty sure that the willingness to pay is far more than 80$ ..for her the right proxy would be ∞

    Who needs to watch the Real thing when you have Autostraddle recaps and parodies! Loved it.

    “Maybe you can teach me how to Romi later.”

    I think I died laughing. If you guys made your own TV show, I for reals think you would get better ratings than The Real L Word.

    I think I died laughing as soon as I saw Claire smoking with chopsticks…and was just in tears for the rest of the video. Props to whoever printed out HOMOSEXUAL in Chinese for Claire’s scene!

    This is amazing.
    I love you guys for putting this stuff together.
    I loved whitney’s tatts, brittani’s cameo, nicki and jill’s appearances, the tiny fucking animals everywhere and all the one earring references.
    also, ‘it was on national tv, it’s sex.’

    I also like how most of the cast couldn’t keep a straight face. Some of them tried to mask it, but it came through slightly and that made me laugh even more. I love parodies and I love people who can make fun of themselves, as well as others equally.

    This is craaaayyyzaaay!! I am still in tears, laughing about it.
    I like how you shot it in similar way with too much out of focus/focus and all the cuts of the same frame. Even the name cards! Hahaha! Great work!
