The Midnight Beast is [[strike:just another BoyBand]] a British comedy band consisting of Stefan Abingdon, Dru Wakely, and Ashley Horne. They mock the living hell out of stuff for a living.

First coming to prominence in 2009 with their [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D4npUdfEmbQ Youtube parody]] of Music/{{Kesha}}'s "Tik Tok", they have since gone on to:

* be among the most viewed and subscribed producers on Website/YouTube
* top the iTunes charts in multiple countries
* make videos for {{MTV}} and TheBBC
* play several major concert festivals

----
!!This band provides examples of:
* AllGuysWantCheerleaders: Averted in "Booty Call", they'd rather engage in a HoYay-filled slumber party.
* AmbiguouslyGay: Ashley.
* AutoTune: Used heavily. The "Just Another Boyband" video implies that [[SelfDeprecation they sound terrible without it.]]
* BoyBand: Parodied, [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin obviously]], in "Just Another Boyband". Going by TV Tropes' own formula, Dru is the Bad Boy, Stefan is the Heartthrob/Sweet One, and Ash is the Cute One.
* UsefulNotes/BritishPoliticalSystem: The subject of their "House Party" video for {{BBC}} Comedy, created for the 2010 General Election.
* ChromaticArrangement: Used in "The Dance Routine" and their live shows. Stefan wears red, Ashley wears blue and Dru wears green.
* DontExplainTheJoke: The addition of a hilariously superfluous "if you know what I mean" in "Lez Be Friends" following an extremely non-subtle proclamation by Stefan that he is going to have sex with lots of girls.
* {{Dubstep}}: In the "[[PunBasedTitle Dubstep On My Mouth]] Skit", it's an evil force replacing their voices with "offensive noises".
* MrFanservice: All three of them.
** They're pretty {{Adorkable}}.
* HeyItsThatGuy: Stefan and Dru previously worked together in the bands The Clik Clik and Perfect People; Ash is an actor who has appeared on EastEnders and Series/DoctorWho.
** Nicholas Hoult in the "Lez Be Friends" video
** "[[SelenaGomez Selina]]" [[SelenaGomez Gomez]] (!!!) shows up with Stefan in "The Dance Routine"
* HoYay: Getting more and more obvious with each music video.
** It's pretty much the entire point of "Booty Call".
* IncrediblyLamePun: Lez Be Friends.
* InstantAwesomeJustAddNinja: "'''OF THE DANCEFLOOR!"'''
* KatanasAreJustBetter: They get you into nightclubs, apparently. But are not actually like Stefan's hands.
* LuckyCharmsTitle: St£fan.
** However, this was only used once, in the "Tik Tok" parody, to mimic Ke$ha.
* {{Metaphorgotten}}: From "Ninjas":
-->'''Stefan''': And my hands are like samurai swords/but they're not metal so nothing like swords/they're just hands...
-->'''Dru''': What the fuck you sayin', man?
* OverlyLongName: According to "The Dance Routine," Stef's full name is Stefan James Donald John Abington
* ParentalAbandonment: Dru. See RunningGag.
* {{Parody}}: So far, of Music/{{Kesha}}'s "Tik Tok", Jay Sean's "Down", and (as "[=XXXMas=] Buddies") Mariah Carey's "All I Want For Christmas".
** Averted with [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QGslnol566I their version]] of [[Music/{{Friday}} Rebecca Black's "Friday"]]: it's a straight cover that they called a parody anyway because they thought original lyrics were so funny.
** Most recently, KatyPerry's "E.T."
** And don't forget their [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GU6xc_G_G1s&feature=related "All Time Low" Parody]]
* RecordProducer: They most recently produced the Selena Gomez track "When The Sun Goes Down" from her album of the same name.
* RunningGag: Dru's dad. Peaks with "Daddy".
* ShoutOut: Some of the more obvious include:
** AmyWinehouse, SarahPalin, [[{{MTV}} Alexa Chung]] and LadyGaga's hits in "Tik Tok (Parody)"
** [[ShockSite Two Girls, One Cup]], and rappers Nelly and SnoopDogg in "Ninjas".
** Dru dressing exactly like LilWayne did in the original "Down" video.
* UncomfortableElevatorMoment: In the beginning of "Just Another Boyband," with the song's melody playing as the awkward elevator music
* TakeThat - Now let's [[FollowTheLeader copy]] [[LadyGaga "Poker Face"]], like whoa whoa oh oh.
** E.T.: "[[KanyeWest Taylor imma' let you finish]]/After I destroy another fairly decent song"
** "Pizza in Ibiza" is basically a long TakeThat at ignorant English tourists.
