Looks like Jared Leto has a sense of humor when it comes to reactions to the Oscar Award-Winning Suicide Squad, the 8th Best Comic Film as voted by ComicBook.com readers.
YouTube filmmakers Hilly and Hannah Hindi of the Hillywood Show turned their parodic eyes to the DC villain team-up movie for their latest parody, applying Lady Gaga-esque vocals and music to Harley Quinn’s love for Mistah J.
After showing Jared Leto the video, he tweeted the link out to his followers and gave the filmmakers an extra boost. It now sits at over 2.5 million views just after two weeks of being posted.
The video, despite capturing the musical and dancing essence of a conventional Gaga video, really makes good use of the same production techniques to give Suicide Squad such a unique look. Using key Harley and Joker scenes as inspiration, Hilly and Hannah manage to make each scene appear as if they took it from the actual film.
Except, you know, there’s singing. And Deadshot backup dancing.
The costume and makeup is also on point for the actual film, so if the Academy Awards ever start recognizing YouTube content as eligible for nominees, they’ll probably start looking at the Hillywood team.

It feels good to be bad… Assemble a team of the world’s most dangerous, incarcerated Super Villains, provide them with the most powerful arsenal at the government’s disposal, and send them off on a mission to defeat an enigmatic, insuperable entity. U.S. intelligence officer Amanda Waller has determined only a secretly convened group of disparate, despicable individuals with next to nothing to lose will do. However, once they realize they weren’t picked to succeed but chosen for their patent culpability when they inevitably fail, will the Suicide Squad resolve to die trying, or decide it’s every man for himself?
Suicide Squad featured an ensemble cast consisting of Will Smith, Jared Leto, Margot Robbie, Joel Kinnaman, Viola Davis, Jai Courtney, Jay Hernandez, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje, Ike Barinholtz, Scott Eastwood, and Cara Delevingne.
Suicide Squad is now available on home media and via Digital HD.
