Here Are Some of the Internet’s Funniest True Detective Parodies

Turns out the internet can (and will) find ways to have fun with even the most dour of TV shows. Take True Detective, HBO's dark drama packed with "artfully arranged corpses; drug-thug posturing and handgun-waving; gratuitous T&A," as Matt Zoller Seitz wrote in his initial review. In this day and age, when you love something, just watching it isn't enough. That's why the internet is already packed with True Detective tributes — and it'll likely only get worse. (Better?) Here are the best, so far:

Bobby Finger's much-shared True Detective Conversations, where Rust Cohle and Martin Hart become the center of an adorable buddy comedy. (FYI, Hart plays the dumb one.)

T.R.U. Detective, a.k.a. the same show, but starring 2 Chainz. (A full embarrassing disclosure: I created this one. And I'm sorry.)

An Arrested Development—themed spin-off?

A slew of True Detective—inspired Valentines:
