Bart Baker - The What's Trending Podcast Ep. 3

Parody king Bart Baker on the latest trends, the secret to ridiculous humor and whether he has more than one hat.

  • Parody king Bart Baker joined What’s Trending for Ep. 3 of “The What’s Trending Podcast,” talking with Shira Lazar, Lon Harris and Jonathan Harris about the latest trends and how his career making music video parodies took off.

    “Parodies are something that aren’t ever going to go away, because a lot of formats get overplayed and people get sick of it,” Bart said. “Even pranks - everyone does pranks now, it’s overplayed. But it’s very hard to mimic what we do, because the production’s insane. […] Maker really puts a lot into it, and it shows. […] I don’t think it will ever stop, because there’s always the next stupid pop song to make fun of.”

    The podcast was streamed live on FireTalk, with viewers sending their questions to Bart and the rest of the team via the chat room - crucial topics such as “does Bart have multiple hats and muscle shirts, or just the one” and “what is his favorite parody.”

    “It’s always hard [to choose], but I still have to say ‘What About Love’ is one of my favorite parodies I’ve done,” he said. “I think it’s the stupid dancing choreography we had to get down.”
