DAVID DRAIMAN: DISTURBED Parody Is ‘Pretty Damn Funny’
Comedian Brandon Muller posted a two-and-a-half minute parody online of Disturbed.
Called “The Greatest Hit Of Disturbed”, the video is designed like an infomercial and pokes fun at the band’s “limited creativity” and singer David Draiman’s “repetitive vocal phrasing,” even suggesting that the band’s material sounds like “one never-ending song.”
Asked by Argentinean rock journalist Lucas H. Gordon what he thought of the clip, Draiman said: “I love that. It’s hysterical. The ‘yuh-muh-nuh-muh-yuh’ thing. Yeah, it’s pretty damn funny.”
He continued: “You know what, dude?! If you can’t find humor and laugh at yourself, then there’s something wrong with you. And for them to actually put all that effort into it and all that time that it took to actually make it, it’s flattering. [Laughs]”
Muller starred as Draiman in the video, right down to the chin rings, although the vocals are handled by Archie Wilson.
Muller has also created a parody video of Linkin Park.
The Disturbed video came with a disclaimer that read, “We actually like Disturbed even more than Linkin Park. It’s fun to poke fun of things you love.”
