In late 2013, the Earth was invaded…by a song. The song would go on to win the Academy Award a few months later, but long before that, nearly every little girl on the planet (and many little boys, too) were singing it everywhere they went! And while most adults couldn’t remember the lyrics no matter how hard we tried to memorize them (frozen fractals???), we all knew the three-word name of the song from the chorus: “Let It Go!”
It took less than two months for a Star Trek parody of that infectious song to make its appearance, compliments of a Canadian singing duo from Toronto known as Debs & Errol. Their band broke up in 2015, sadly, but not before giving the world numerous geek parody songs and music videos…most of which can be found on their YouTube channel. And of course, what better way to parody the words “Let It Go!” than with Jean-Luc Picard’s patented command catch-phrase: “Make It So!”
But aside from simply being a clever idea, the parody lyrics are amazingly fitting to the plot of the eighth Star Trek feature film First Contact, the movie clips follow those lyrics perfectly, and the singing is refreshingly on key (thank God!). Take a look:
But wait! There’s more!!!
Debs and Errol have a whole bunch of parody videos up on their YouTube channel, but my absolute FAVORITE, even more than the “Make It So!” Star Trek one, is this brilliant Star Wars parody music video, “TIE After TIE.” You’re NOT going to regret this:

Have you seen the latest one by Pogo? Very catchy, plus he’s quite good with the Picard and Data mannerisms.
Absolutely fantastic, Starius. Based on your recommendation, I went to this guy’s website and lost about two hours of my life watching many of this other 50+ music videos. LOTS of Disney stuff (some of it done professionally FOR Disney, apparently). All of it sheer genius.
Glad you liked it too!
I’ve always been impressed with how he can edit samples from so many different sources as he does and yet still retain his own distinct musical style. I think it does take a rather brilliant mind.
