The Hillywood Show Does a Beat-Perfect Umbrella Academy Mockumentary Parody

I do love the work of cosplay extraordinaires  Hilly and Hannah Hindi, known as The Hillywood Show. Spending months – years – creating utterly musical accurate parodies of their favourite shows, with ridiculous care and attention, funded by thousands of crowdsourced donations that make their biggest dreams possible. Their Sherlock Parody was a standout, travelling to the UK to film in the locations of the show and using Macklemore and Ryan Lewis' Thrift Shop for a beat perfect Sherlock, and grabbing in a couple of Moffats for good measure. Originally inspired by French & Saunders for their first Harry Potter efforts, their influences are now spread far and wide… and they have just created an Umbrella Academy video which dropped last week. It's a full twenty-minute film which intends to be a documentary looking at the children of the Umbrella Academy and what went down in the show, somewhere between the original Netflix series and What We Do In the Shadows. You will forget you are not looking at the real thing in seconds… even when the musical numbers kick off.

Sit back and enjoy… and get ready to put this on repeat while you wait for Season 2.


Meet Number Five, a 58-year-old time-traveling assassin, trapped in his 13-year-old body, who's in love with a mannequin named Dolores despite the opinions of his super dysfunctional family. From the minds of Hilly & Hannah, Creators of The Hillywood Show®, THE UMBRELLA ACADEMY PARODY is the first of its kind! This extraordinary, 20 minute mockumentary on NETFLIX'S THE UMBRELLA ACADEMY, highlights the dynamics of the superhero family, their quirks, personalities and strange addictions.
