Dtoid contributor Ian Bonds likes making musical parodies


10:30 AM on 01.22.2012



Ian Bonds is a name you might have seen pop up a few times here on Dtoid. He's been a contributor for a while now, submitting reviews for games that might have slipped through the cracks. What you may not be aware of, however, is that he is also Insane Ian, a comedy geek musician who likes to write parodies of contemporary and popular music similarly to "Weird Al" Yankovic. You can check out some of the videos he's released over on his YouTube page and website.

Above is "Skryim," a parody of... Rebecca Black's "Friday." It was clearly made for kicks and giggles, but I think he captured the awkwardness of the original almost to well. For more variety, I direct you to two of his earlier numbers, "Bob-Omb" and "Guitar Hero," embedded after the jump.

What if VHS-style tip guides still existed?

There was something about the VHS days that brought out the goofiest tips and promotional videos from game makers. Especially Nintendo. The most memorable one that comes to mind is their Star Fox SNES promo that had Sony and...more

Review: Yoshi's New Island

The original Yoshi's Island is one of my favorite Mario games of all time. I don't know if it's the numerous and remarkably unique boss battles or the whimsical charm of throwing strategically bounced eggs, but it r...more
