‘Community’ duo teams up for hilarious ‘True Detective’ spoof
Cold fargin’ makes moles into Marys and Marys into moles. Wait, what?
True Detective may be the Twin Peaks of the Southern Gothic. In between gorgeous cinematography and tantalizing mysteries, it trades on cryptic meanings, creepy iconography, and loaded, sometimes borderline incomprehensible dialogue.
All of which, of course, makes it perfect parody material. And no one does parody like Joel McHale and his fellow Community comedian, Oscar-winning screenwriter and comedian Jim Rash. The two have teamed up on McHale’s The Soup to deliver a hilarious take on HBO’s Southern noir masterpiece. From McHale’s McConaughey drawl to Rash’s garbled take on Woody Harrelsons grizzled speech, everything about this spoof is pitch-perfect.
