Fun Fact: Abby Elliott, from Saturday Night Live, actually did a Gwyneth Paltrow impersonation as part of her Saturday Night Live audition tape. It’s true. What I’m saying is that this parody of the Gwyneth Paltrow roast chicken video is basically Abby Elliott’s Amistad. She called back into the past, far back to the beginning of time and begged her ancestors to come and help her at the making of this parody video. She reached back and drew them into her, and they had to come, for at this moment she is the whole reason they have existed at all.

This is funny, but it would be a lot funnier if Gwyneth Paltrow wasn’t already a parody of herself. Did you know they were thinking of renaming the Groundlings the Gwynethlings? No they weren’t. (Thanks for the tip, Marc, Tyson, Ted, and Lindsay.)

  1. I found the crying bit a bit much, but this was pretty funny :)

    • Dear Little Lord Gabriel and Sir Facetiously Misconstrued,

      Why must you continue to ridicule me for little or no reason? I share my love of great taste with everyone–I share my passionate love of my body with you, Gabriel–and yet everyone continues to mock my actions. What do you want? For me to turn GOOP into a copy of some celebrity blog? No. There are many people out there who appreciate–even love–what I am doing. They support it and are absolutely wonderful. One day, I am sure you will all come around and perhaps then we can all go GOOPing together. One day.

      Gabriel, it may sound as if I’m upset with you, but you know how it is: I am far too drawn to you to ever deny it. I shall see you tonight; I’m wearing the thong I purchased from a lovely town along the Mediterranean. They say it’s based on a design hundreds of years old.



  2. Secrets revealed: Everytime Gabe disappears for a walk, Gwynnie cries.

    The original was definitely funnier.

  4. Gwyneth doesn’t have any friends named” Wes Anderson”. Maybe “Gentle Sir Wesley Anderson the Great”, but definitely not “Wes Anderson”.

    A chicken died to make this video.


    Who did this terrible thing to me? Fess up, you guys.

  7. The video gives me too much to love. I’ll start with the “o-leave oil”.

  8. This is fantastic!!! Also fantastic, I just learned Abby Elliott is Chris Elliott’s daughter. Thanks for the learning, Videogum.

  9. I never actually watched the Gwyneth Paltrow video, but this was just perfect. Abby Elliot should be in every SNL sketch, and they should all be exactly like this.

  10. Doesn’t FoD have millions of dollars in financing? Can’t they spend 3 dollars of that on making their videos in the right aspect ratio so they don’t look stretched?

    Whine whine fart

    (It costs 3 dollars to make your videos look right, by the way.)

  11. The paper scissors and butter knife were probably the best parts. Oh and she’s has a pretty nice name.

  12. Doesn’t have enough farmer’s market references.

  13. Chris enters his home.
    “Honey, what happened to your hands?”
    “I was having sex with my three roommates and they tied me up.” Gwyneth replies.

  14. BOOM! Roasted.

    This is the least funny thing I have ever seen.
    Thanks for nothing.
    I sit here joyless.

    I’m not trying to be Goop’s boyfriend or anything, but that was not AT ALL funny. I guess Die.

  17. My friend Gabe posted this video.

  18. I think Gabe is secretly in love with Abby Elliott.
