I just love stuff from these guys – Wong Fu Productions. Apparently they made a few music video parodies, with songs like Senorita by Justin Timberlake, I’m Yours by Jason Mraz, and Qing Fei Di Yi by Harlem Yu, back when they were in university. Check out those videos below :

Parody of Senorita

Parody of I’m Yours

Parody of Famous Chinese Song Qing Fei Di Yi

Alternatively, search for them on YouTube.

The Drowmage thinks that these guys don’t just have talent, they have passion. Passion for what they do.

Now why can’t our local unis churn people with talent? Oh yes, I keep forgetting. We’re not supposed to use our brains for creative things in school, only for cramming, learning useless things and being turned out into the world jobless.

No, this is not related to the actual disease. It’s a video made by an three American Chinese guys who met in college and realized that they shared a passion for filmmaking. Later on, they set up Wong Fu Productions.

Out of their collection of shorts, the funniest one I’ve seen so far is” Yellow Fever”, about Chinese guys wondering why all their Chinese chicas seem to go for American guys, but not themselves.

Music accompaniment is a mix between the stuff you hear playing The Sims 2 or Theme Hospital.

Check it out here.

Something for all aspiring local filmmakers out there. If a bunch of college students can do this, why can’t our country’s established filmmakers do this? Is it because they just keep recycling the same boring rubbish over and over again?
