'Boys' Spoof 'Girls' In Hilarious Viral Video Parody Trailer

Lena Dunham

They say imitation is the most sincere form of flattery, and Judd Apatow is feeling the love, tweeting his seal of approval for a new parody video spoofing HBO’s hit comedy “Girls,” which he produces.

“Boys” is a new fake trailer lampooning the Emmy-nominated series that stars Lena Dunham (who is also show creator) and focuses on a group of twenty-something friends as they make their way through life in the Big Apple. The hilarious clip does a fantastic job of satirizing the show’s sex talk and instances of co-dependency.

Playing off the allegations of nepotism the show has weathered, "Boys" even touts such big name second generation stars as the (faux!) sons of Pat Benatar and Daniel Craig – yes, Craig Craig.

The actual source of their inspiration, “Girls,” has been a hit for HBO. Dunham created the show following the success of her indie hit “Tiny Furniture,” which was a semi-autobiographical film about her moving back into her parents’ loft following college. Dunham directed “Furniture” at the spry age of 24 on a budget of only $50,000.

Apatow was a fan of the flick and now look at Dunham – she’s got a cozy half-million dollar pad in NYC’s Brooklyn Heights.
