Bruno Mars "Grenade" Parody Music Video Blowing Up On The Web

Writer/Director Payman Benz Has Produced A New Comedy Video Entitled "Grenade Parody: The Wingman's Anthem"

Online PR News – 26-March-2011 – – Urban hipsters and "Jersey Shore" fans know that a "grenade" refers to the ugly girl in a group of hotties. The honorable wingman will make the sacrifice of throwing himself onto the "grenade" in order to help his buddies have a chance at hooking-up. If the ugly girl doesn't get action then nobody does. While Bruno Mar's song is about love sacrifice, the Payman Benz parody is all about bro sacrifice. It's a love song from a scorned "bro" to his bro who always takes the hotter girl when they go out.

Since premiering on the web last week the comedy video, largely funded through, has been gaining views quickly on YouTube, FunnyOrDie and Vimeo.
