Parody is one of the best ways to engage an audience that doesn't trust you. Now, of course, it goes without saying that bad parody is worse than no parody, so you have to strive to do it well. But let's face it: most pre-Christians walking into our environments don't think that we can relate - they don't trust us. When they see something like Lord Spice, something that takes a water cooler topic and spins it, then there is a chance that they would think, "hey, I guess they're not as square and outdated as I imagined before I walked in here."
And of course, they might not like it at all. But that's the risk you take. And all art creation is a risk - even parody. Check out Lord Spice below, in case you haven't yet. And thanks for reading the blog!
