The fun world of video game/anime/hip-hop/pop music mashup parodies


#1

So one of my nerdier hobbies is curating a playlist of fun YouTube mashups like this surprisingly fitting combination of Kendrick Lamar’s Humble with Pokemon music:

It’s been popularised by SiivaGunner (a parody channel of popular video game soundtrack uploader SilvaGunner) who likes to give real-sounding YouTube titles for video game tracks and use that to lure people into accidentally hearing the song they were looking for mashed up with Gangnam Style. Here’s some great versions of those:

The Wii Shop Channel but it’s actually Hotline Bling:

The Pokemon Gold and Silver Lucky Channel song but it’s actually a mashup of Daft Punk’s “Get Lucky” in the Pokemon soundfont:

A frighteningly natural sounding mashup of Undertale with Soulja Boy:

(If you’re interested in my YouTube playlist of like 45 of these songs you can find it here.)

I made this thread because I know this music scene has a pretty big fan community and I’d love to hear what other people may have collected. Anyone have some to share?

All good videos so far!

Some of the videos are impressive mega-mashups, this one has about 10 things happening in a single 1:30 minute video:
