Big Birdman

Every now and then the folks at "Sesame Street" deliver fun, kid-friendly parodies of popular films, and we've highlighted spoofs of Star Wars, Lord of the Rings and The Hunger Games. And with the 87th Academy Awards looming this weekend, and Birdman being the frontrunner for some big awards, we're happy to see them deliver Big Birdman: The Unexpected Virtue of Orange Pants, which puts Big Bird puppeteer Caroll Spinney in place of Michael Keaton's Riggan Thompson. Not only is this fun, but it gets the score right, as well as the single-take style. There's even areference to Raymond Carver. Watch!

Here's the parody Big Birdman: The Unexpected Virtue of Orange Pants (via SlashFilm):

Birdman or The Unexpected Virtue of Ignorance is directed by Alejandro González Iñárritu, who co-wrote the script with Nicolás Giacobone & Armando Bo (Biutiful) and newcomer Alexander Dinelaris. The film tells the story of an actor (Michael Keaton), famous for portraying an iconic superhero, as he struggles to mount a Broadway play. In the days leading up to opening night, he battles his ego and attempts to recover his family, his career, and himself. Also starring Zach Galifianakis, Edward Norton, Andrea Riseborough, Amy Ryan, Emma Stone, Naomi Watts. Fox Searchlight has the film out on Blu-Ray and DVD right now.
