Parody is a form of humour or satire that imitates and mocks another work of art or a specific genre, often by exaggerating or distorting its features for comedic effect. It can take many forms, including literature, music, film, television, and other media. A parody may use similar characters, settings, or plot elements to the original work, but with exaggerated or ridiculous qualities that are meant to be humorous. Parody is often used as a form of social or political commentary, and can be used to criticize or satirize specific individuals, groups, or ideologies. Some examples of famous parodies include the films “Airplane!” and “The Naked Gun,” which parody the disaster and police genres, respectively.
