Amalayer Parody Video Goes Viral

A video which shows a social media user impersonating the so-called “Amalayer GirlPaula Salvosa, has gone viral in the internet on Friday.

A netizen known as Jem Mark, who’s gaining popularity on Facebook, Twitter and YouTube, made the parody video.

In a status message, Jem said he loves “Amalayer” and thinks she “is fun to be with.” Earlier, he urged his followers to just imitate Salvosa instead of bullying her.

In the video, Jem used ‘diplomas’ as props to emphasize how educated “Amalayer” is. He also inserted some lines not included in the original viral video to add some humor to the parody.

According to Wikipedia, a parody is “an imitative work created to mock, comment on or trivialise an original work, its subject, author, style, or some other target, by means of satiric or ironic imitation.”

YouTube users dubbed Jem’s version as the “best Amalayer parody video so far.” It was viewed more than 328,000 times in just 24 hours.

Amalayer” is an expression that originated from Salvosa’s pronounciation of “I’m a liar?” while she was berating female security guard Sharon Mae Casinas at the LRT station earlier this week.

The original viral video got more than 820,000 hits on YouTube as of this posting.
