** "Why Does This Always Happen To Me?" is of the "serious to silly" variety. It first appears to be a very straight account of a tragic earthquake in Peru, sung in a very earnest fashion in a song whose melody and tempo is quite fitting to the sad mood....then he reveals himself to be a jerk who's mad that this report about the Peruvian earthquake interrupted his watching and taping Series/TheSimpsons....

** The video for "Jurassic Park" has the line "I'm afraid those things'll harm me/Cuz they sure don't act like [[BarneyAndFriends Barney]]" accompanied by Barney's head getting bitten off by a real t-rex. When shown at his concerts, the crowd regularly responds with thunderous applause.

Added DiffLines:

*** An additional example is "Christmas At Ground Zero", an AntiChristmasSong that emulates Phil Spector's production style.


Added DiffLines:

** The video for "It's All About The Pentiums" spends plenty of time parodying the original video and "Mo Money Mo Problems", but even the unrelated scenes mimic the fisheye-heavy visual style of Hype Williams.
