Miley Cyrus’ “Wrecking Ball” music video has another parody making the rounds online.
Since everyone with a sense of humor feels the need to emulate the controversial singer’s insanely popular clip, there are numerous parodies available for your viewing pleasure on YouTube at the moment. Even professional wrestler Hulk Hogan decided to get in on the action, though his isn’t nearly as enjoyable as others.
Although he’s a little late to the game, legendary porn star Ron Jeremy decided to make his very own “Wrecking Ball” parody. The video isn’t anything you haven’t seen before — Jeremy licks the sledgehammer and sheds a tear for the camera — but it’s definitely kind of mesmerizing in its own extremely disturbing way.
Since watching Ron Jeremy channel Miley Cyrus in a “Wrecking Ball” parody is appealing to a large section of the world’s population, it didn’t take very long for the clip to accumulate several views on YouTube. As of this writing, the video in question has racked up 2.6 million views. That number will probably rise before this writer presses publish.
If you’re worried about the “Wrecking Ball” parody’s content, then you’ll be extremely happy to know that the clip doesn’t feature any nudity. In short: It’s mildly safe for work. While it’s still a little disturbing to see Ron Jeremy swinging around in underwear and a t-shirt, at least he’s not completely in the buff during the video.
YouTube comedian Stephen Kardynal, who caught everyone’s attention with his “Call Me Maybe” parody, enjoyed a healthy dose of success from his own send-up of the “Wrecking Ball” video. In fact, the clip helped propel Miley Cyrus’ song back up the Billboard charts. The parody eventually found its way into Cyrus’ neck of the woods.
Last week Miley Cyrus’s management company asked for my address so they could send me something. Thanks for the Champagne, Miley! 😀

Everyone seems to love having some fun at the expense of Miley Cyrus and her “Wrecking Ball” video. However, the singer admitted that filming the clip was a deeply emotional experience. In other words, those aren’t fake tears you see streaming down her face.
“I think the video is much more [than nudity]. If people get past the point I make, and you actually look at me, you can tell I look more broken than even the song sounds… It was a lot harder to do the video than it was to record the song. It was much more of an emotional experience,” Cyrus explained last year.
She added, “The song is a pop ballad that everyone can relate to; everyone has felt that feeling at some point. If people can take their minds off the obvious and go into their imagination and see what the video really means.”
