Watch IFC’s “Boy Band”, the Darkest Satirical Boy Band Reality Show Parody in Recent Memory

As the boy band formula continues to be successful throughout the decades, there has been parodies of boy bands right there following along. You might remember Conan’s Dudez-a-Plenti or MTV’s 2Ge+her as some of notable examples.

In 2016, Brett Davis of the subversive, meta, absurdist talk show, The Special Without Brett Davis, writes and stars in a new, similarly toned boy band parody in the IFC web series simply called Boy Band

NYC comedy folks including Anna DrezenJo Firestone, Ana FabregaJulio Torres (who also co-wrote a good deal of the series), John Early, and more round out a great cast.

There are six episodes in total and you might not look at boy bands, or any reality show endeavor for that matter, the same way afterwards.

Or, if you have a pretty dark view on the music industry, maybe this would just redouble your feelings about the whole boy band model.

Either way, you should watch the whole series here.
