Fifty Shades Of Grey Is Infinitely Better When Read Seductively By The Parrot From Aladdin

Oh, Iago.

It’s been just under a week since the filmic adaptation of Fifty Shades of Grey was released and it’s safe to say reviews are divided. Today co-host Lisa Wilkinson slammed it as “domestic violence dressed up as erotica,” others are finding surprising entertainment amidst all the smut, and your mum won’t quite maintain eye contact with you anymore, let alone talk about it.

On the whole, it seems about the same as the book. There’s more BDSM, more bad writing and more menopausal orgasm. If you’re into that, it’ll be fun! If not, it’ll make for an all-round uncomfortable trip to the cinema.

But, in an effort to shake things up and help give the franchise a broader audience, College Humor have this week given the story an alternate spin.

Brooding billionaires are great and all, but I like my men to remind me of obnoxious cartoon parrots from my childhood.

Oooh yeah.

Iago reading sexy stuff in a horrible voice > Christian Grey reading horrible stuff in a sexy voice.
