This Judd Apatow-Approved Girls Parody Is Amazing (VIDEO)

Girls will be Girls — and now Boys will be Boys.

HBO has released a genius parody trailer for a super-white, NYC-set series called Boys (via Entertainment Weekly), which stars fake celebuspawn Bear Blitzer (Wolf Blitzer’s fictitious son) and Craig Craig (Daniel Craig’s equally make-up son), among others.

It’s a play on the Judd Apatow-produced and Lena Dunham-penned comedy Girls, which stars Lena and other offspring of famous New Yorkers. (Lena is the daughter of two well-known artists; Allison Williams’s father is NBC Nightly news anchor Brian Williams; and Zosia Mamet is playwright David Mamet’s daughter.) As hilarious and entertaining as it is, the show caught flack early on for this apparent nepotism and its glaring racial uniformity.

Lena later addressed the “whitewashing” controversy in an interview with NPR, explaining, “I am a half-Jew, half-WASP, and I wrote two Jews and two WASPs. Something I wanted to avoid was tokenism in casting.”

No matter your stance on the show, this fake trailer is super amusing. (And if Daniel Craig ever has a son, he better name him Craig.)

In Lena Dunham’s a man’s world, pants are optional.
