Hilarious Video Spoofs “The Hunger Games” and “The Hangover”

The newest viral clip from our friends at “Funny or Die” is pretty hilarious, whether you’re a “Hunger Games” fan, a “Hangover” fan or most likely, all of the above.

“The Hungover Games” is 2:41 of satirical brilliance, featuring a bunch of hard-partying young adults unwillingly chosen to curb their drinking activities and instead fight to the death. When birthday party hostess “Carnation Evergreen” is chosen as a tribute but too drunk to participate, her sister bravely volunteers in her place.

Check it out:

With no sunglasses, no water and no headache medicines allowed, The Hungover Games find the “tributes” engaged in such torturous activities as listening to ear-splittingly loud music, getting a leaf-blower in the face, and attempting to balance an egg on a spoon. Come to think of it, some of that stuff wouldn’t be too pleasant even if you were stone-cold sober!

Soon enough, the contestants are at each others’ necks, Instagramming and Dizzy-Lizzying themselves to the verge of vomiting. It’s a really cute clip, and with a combined box office of over a billion dollars for “Hunger Games” and the two “Hangover” movies, there certainly seems to be no shortage of people who will laugh at the FOD mini-movie’s many in-jokes.

Founded in late 2006 by Hollywood heavyweights Will Ferrell, Adam McKay and Judd Apatow, Funny or Die quickly became one of the main sources for viral videos on the Internet, especially well-produced ones often staring big Hollywood names. From Paris Hilton and Lindsay Lohan to Justin Bieber, Jack Black and Emma Stone, the site has given us plenty of big laughs over the years.

As for “Hungover Games,” be sure to keep your eyes peeled for the hilarious Kathryn Hahn – perhaps best remembered as the woman who raped John C. Reilly in “Step Brothers” – spoofing Elizabeth Banks’ iconic “Hunger Games” performance as Effie Trinket.
