This Guy Channels Every Inspirational Video Ever To Create One Hilarious Parody

Jun 6, 2015 By Archit Tripathi
If you go on social media sites at all or you like watching videos online (you're already here, so we both know you do), then you have undoubtedly come in contact with the genre of "inspirational" videos that feature slam poetry. It's usually some guy up close on a camera saying a bunch of somewhat profound things, with a few graphics and some serious music thrown in. These videos are immensely popular, though how effective they actually are at inspiring change is somewhat dubious.

This video is a hilarious parody of those types of inspirational videos, in which, actor Peter Gilroy exposes some of the things that are most commonly found in them. My personal favorite is the phrase reversal, which is definitely something I've seen in a lot of "profound" videos. Whether or not inspirational YouTube poets inspire change, it's clear they've definitely inspired some great comedy.
