“It’s Not Sexy, It’s Yoga” vs. “It’s Not Fitness, It’s Life”

Surely by now you’ve seen the original, if not minorly scandalous Equinox yoga video, featuring Briohny Smyth. Well, it’s a great week for the yoga world now that humorist Michael A. Stusser (“The Dead Guy Interviews”) takes his yoga skills to the next level with a spot on parody of the original.

The Parody…

VS.

The Original…

Stusser’s interview about the video with Well+GoodNYC has some great lines…

W+G: As a humorist, was doing a parody an immediate idea or did it occur to you during savasana epiphany?

MS: I’m sure I got the idea while stoned out of my mind and blaring Deer Tick but I seriously don’t remember. Before I even did the video, a lot of people had mentioned how much my practice looked like this woman, Briohny Smyth’s – who I’d never heard of. So it might have had something to do with that…

I think they look just about the same, yes/no? Good fun though…
