And, let’s take a moment to have a laugh at the expense of EDM DJs – and, around that moment where you get some bloodied laptop fingers, ourselves.

YouTube Comedy purveyors Nacho Punch take on Oscar-winning Whiplash – a film about a jazz drummer – with a DJ rendition set in a made-up “Skrillex Academy.”

You’ll want to have the original fresh in mind first, so see the original above, then the parody below.

And then… well, here I was going to make some snarky comment or some sort of clever insight, or perhaps broaden the comedy to some deeper reflection on the meaning of…

Who am I kidding? Now I’m probably just going to spend the rest of tonight watching the rest of these YouTube videos, instead of the usual wundergroundmusic.com stories. Yeah, thanks for that. I should really be getting on a new mix in Traktor. Why don’t you see glow sticks any more, anyway? I … lost my train of thought. Crossfade.

Via DJ City. Thanks to our friends at the talented Aconia creative lab for sound + media, who actually have a whole lot of talent and are, indeed, some of the best.

  • Great movie, great parody.

    Totally hilarious, thanks for sharing.

    Hopefully the rest of the universe (Uproxx, AV Club, Dissolve) will at least link to your page for the hits.

    “Don’t worry about the music, just steal samples from other people”.
    “I’M HITTING THE SPACE BAR!”
    “I’m a DJ” “Me too”. “Me too”. “Same here”. “Check me on soundcloud”. (ad nauseam)

    Funny thing is, this hardly qualifies as “parody”. It is actually VERY close to the reality of what being a DJ is mostly about these days.
