The Key of Awesome is a magical musical comedy show featured on the Barely Political channel.
In 2009, Ben Relles and Mark Douglas had the crazy idea to create The Key of Awesome
just to blow your mind. Like it was nothing.
But it wasn't nothing! The music video parody "Ke$ha, Glitter Puke
" was named the 2nd most viewed video of 2010
. In 2011 Barely Political was named one of the top 10 most globally viewed You Tube channels of the year
. If that wasn't already awesome, the LMFAO parody, "Santa and I know It
" was the 3rd most viewed holiday video of 2011
. And one time Pitbull tweeted about us:
Need a last minute idea 4 a costume 2nite? How 'bout a DRAGONFLY
That will make more sense if you watch this. Todd Womack joined the team in 2010 as a writer and performer on the Barely Political channel and started doing a better Pitbull impression than even Pitbull does.
KoA loves spoofing celebrities, pop-culture and the latest internet memes.
We like to throw in an occasional original song by comedic maestro Mark Douglas just to keep things spicy.
