Parodies abound in this week's roundup of our favorite online videos. MTV offered a celebrity edition of Catfish, Funny or Die took some lighthearted jabs at House of Cards, and Girls became Bros. In Cute News, Jimmy Kimmel administered a "lie detector test" to a 6-year-old at his elementary school in Brooklyn, and a cat discovered the magic of mirrors. Check out those clips and more in Top Videos:
Bros Trailer: With Christopher Abbott announcing his departure from HBO's Girls, may we offer this suggestion for his next gig? This gender-reversing parody Bros is what we imagine would happen if Lena Dunham wrote for Jersey Shore. (Bonus: It's real! Watch Episode 1 here.)
Cat Figures Out How Mirrors Work: Ah, the magic of reflection. Sometimes the simplest things are also the most entertaining! For this cat, anyway.
Celebrity Catfish: If the promo videos for this year's Rebel Wilson-hosted MTV Movie Awards are any indication, then Sunday's show is set to be pretty flippin' funny. Check out this teaser for Celebrity Catfish, in which Joe Manganiello, Mark Wahlberg, Anna Kendrick and MTV News' Josh Horowitz have an unexpected encounter when they all go to meet their "online soul mate" — Wilson herself.
Jimmy Kimmel's Lie Detector Test: Jimmy Kimmel recently returned to his elementary school in Brooklyn to administer a "lie detector test" (wink, wink) to some kids. During an interrogation, this poor 6-year-old was forced to admit to cheating on a test and having an 18-year-old girlfriend.
House of Asides: Kevin Spacey's tendency to break the fourth wall as Frank Underwood on Netflix's House of Cards is a somewhat jarring technique that the show uses quite frequently — so much so that the folks at FunnyorDie.com wonder whether it shouldn't just be called House of Asides.
Gollum Sings Taylor Swift: Ever wondered what it would sound like if Gollum from The Lord of the Rings sang karaoke to Taylor Swift's "I Knew You Were Trouble"? Here's your chance to find out. Which is creepier: this guy's uncanny ability to sing like Gollum, or the fact that the song doesn't sound half bad? Check out his other cover versions here.
