Three ladies on motherhood and the history of music, while the Dark Knight rises elsewhere
Music of the ages
Comprising three brazen and bold ladies, the Aussie group, SketchShe’s road trip sees them lip sync to classics across the ages, weaving in music, videos and appearances of the eras. Starting out with The Andrew Sisters’ Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy from 1941 they take you through the King of Pop, Elvis’ Presley’s coiffed hair styles and hip shakes to Michael Jackson’s moon dance and then Britney Spear’s Hit Me Baby One More Time. Keep an eye out for their 90s rock avatar and the 2000s hip-hop era. Plus, a Miley Cyrus Wrecking Ball moment too – minus the clothes as well!
Set to Blank Space by Taylor Swift, three mums (What’s Up Moms who make mother- relatable videos) use their babies to make this Mom Version about motherhood. Inspired by that afternoon slump, caffeine, and a little confusion over the actual lyrics of the song (they think Swift sings Starbucks Latte when she’s really saying Long List Of Ex Lovers), they film their day which revolves around their kids. Anyone with a toddler at home will relate to this, even dads! Watch out for the bit where one mum uses the Doll House pillow for a quick snooze before her ‘nightmare dressed as an ice cream’ arrives.
Gotham down south
If you’ve wondered what you’d look like in a Bat suit in your neighbourhood, then this one is for you. Called What if Batman Were From Chennai, the video tracks the life of Bruceothaman Waynekatraman of Starch Industries. From pinching people for answers to brushing teeth in public, it weaves in the true Chennai (or most Indian suburbs) feel. The Indian Alfred even reprimands Batman for roaming around at night and not working in IT “like Srinivasan’s son”. And instead of freely fighting crime, he is made to stop by at the bank to run errands for his father.
