Pitch Perfect Parodies Bring Out The Best In Aspiring Vocalists

tumblr_nfcy64dqxj1qd4rf5o9_1280An old adage tells us that imitation is the sincerest form of flattery. If this is true, the filmmakers of the 2012 smash hit Pitch Perfect (and its hotly-anticipated sequel Pitch Perfect 2, which opens in theaters Friday) should feel highly honored. The comedy, which chronicled the journey of the Barden Bellas, a rag tag group of collegiate a cappella vocalists, as they vie to win the national competition, not only evoked a huge response from moviegoers, it also unleashed an almost unparalleled number of loving parodies. Everyone from prolific parodist Todrick Hall to a group of sex and talented military guys to every high school student with a camera tried to one up Anna Kendrick, Rebel Wilson and the other Bellas. Scroll down to see some of our favorites.
