The Hillywood Show goes full SuperWhoLock with Sherlock Parody

Sherlock Watson bus Hillywood Sherlock ParodyThe Hillywood Show is up to their usual hijinks, giving us another entertaining parody video. This time, they’re portraying the immensely popular BBC series Sherlock. Sherlock Parody scenes are played against an adaptation of the song “Thrift Shop” by Mackelmore and Ryan Lewis. The creative Hillywood team even managed to snag a cameo from series creator Steven Moffat and his son Louis. Now that they’ve added Sherlock to their catalog on top of the previous parodies of Doctor Who and Supernatural, the Hindi sisters have proved their #SuperWhoLockian cred.

Hilly Hindi Hillywood Sherlock ParodyHilly Hindi plays the dysfunctional detective Sherlock Holmes, while sister Hannah Hindi portrays straight man Dr. John Watson. Hilly and Hannah were able to capture the mannerisms that Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman bring to their roles as contemporary versions of Holmes and Watson. As well as playing the main roles and doing some impressive dancing, the sisters were responsible for writing, directing, and editing Sherlock Parody. Is there anything they can’t do?

Osric Chau Moriarty Hillywood Sherlock ParodySupernatural alum Osric Chau joined the sisters once again, playing misunderstood villain Jim Moriarty. In Sherlock’s Video Diary Chau tells us that Moriarty is more bored than malicious. He takes it a step further in the Behind the Scenes video, noting, “If you really think about it, Sherlock is the evil one.” Chris Rankin, best known as Percy Weasley in the Harry Potter movies, takes on the role of Mycroft Holmes.

Sherlock Watson Mrs Hudson Hillywood Sherlock ParodySherlock was more of a family affair than their previous videos. The Hindi sisters’ Grandmother,Tina Leaskas, plays Mrs. Hudson. Their grandfather Luis upholstered furniture and valances for the set.

The Sherlock Parody replicated many of the series’ memorable moments and scene sets. Sherlock Watson Hound Tor Hillywood Sherlock ParodyKeeping true to the series, they filmed at some of the same locations such as Hounds Tor, the Bristol South Swimming Pool, and the entrance to 221B Baker Street. Sherlockology helped The Hillywood Show with locations, props, and other Sherlock-related specifics, ensuring they got it right.

Sherlock Parody Lyrics by Hilly and Hannah Hindi

I’m gonna solve a case
Only got John Watson as my partner
I – I – I’m hunting, looking for a come-up
This is bloody awesome

Now walk up to the scene like, “What up? I got a big coat!”
I’m so pumped about murders, I’m Sherlock
Dirt on the ring, she must have been naughty
Lestrade be like,

Lestrade: “Damn! That’s a cold dead body!”

Rollin’ with a suitcase too, solved it like a piece of cake
Dressed in all pink, the killer made a big mistake
Draped in a white sheet, John sittin’ next to me
Probably should’a washed this …

John: “You wearing any pants?”
Sherlock: “No. S****, I didn’t wanna get dressed!”

Typin’ it, bloggin’ it, Watson givin’ me some compliments
Examinin’ those sneakers someone else’s been walkin’ in
Body in the mortuary, I’m whipping’ and floggin’ it
The name is Sherlock Homes, Address 221B Baker Street
I am gonna take the fall, I am gonna take the fall,
No for real—stay where you are—
Goodbye John …

John: “Sherlock!”

Lazy silk robe and no house slippers
9-millimeter handgun that I found diggin’
He had a pair of glasses, I stole his pair of glasses
I stole some eyeliner, then I drew a mustache
Hello, hello, my ace man, my Mello
John ain’t happy ‘bout my resurrection, hell no
I could take some Pro Wings, search them good, Bingo
Moriarty be like,

Moriarty: “Aw, he solved the Velcros …”

 I’m gonna solve a case
Only got John Watson as my partner
I – I – I’m hunting, looking for a come-up
This is bloody awesome

I’m gonna solve a case
Only got John Watson as my partner
I – I – I’m hunting, looking for a come-up
This is bloody awesome

Whatcha know about rockin’ some curls on your noggin?
What you knowin’ about wearin’ a deerstalker?
I’m digging, I’m digging,
I’m searching for pink luggage
One man’s trash, that’s another man’s come-up
There’s the woman who’s seductive
she’s naked and defrocked
Stole her phone, the code was SHERLOCKED

I’m at the flat, you can find me at (Baker Street)
Any, any client, I’m accepting at (Baker Street)

Your hubby, your auntie, your grandpa, your bunny
I took The Bloody Guardsman Case, second-hand, solved it in my Mind Palace
The Hollow Client that was solved in my Mind Palace
Serial Killers, Oh it’s Christmas in my Mind Palace
They be like,

Mycroft: “Oh, my brother’s a psychopath.”

I’m like, “Yo—a high functioning sociopath.”
Limited edition, let’s do some simple deduction
The Van Buren Supernova—that painting is a fake, b****

John: “Damn!”

I call that getting swindled and tricked

John: “Damn!”

I call that the science of deduction
That club was hella dough
But searching for a clue while intoxicated in this room is a hella don’t
Think hard, let’s play a game—a game of murder
Tryin’ to wake me from my drugs and you hella won’t
Man you hella won’t

John: “Sherlock … cluin’ for looks … yeah!”

I’m gonna solve a case
Only got John Watson as my partner
I – I – I’m hunting, looking for a come-up
This is bloody awesome

I’m gonna solve a case
Only got John Watson as my partner
I – I – I’m hunting, looking for a come-up
This is bloody awesome

You know the game is on
I look incredible
I’m in this big-ass coat
From that Flat 221B
You know the game is on

John: “Damn right!”

I look incredible

John: “Ah, come on man!”

I’m in this big-ass coat

John: “Big ass coat!”

From that flat 221B

John: “Let’s go!”

I’m gonna solve a case
Only got John Watson as my partner
I – I – I’m hunting, looking for a come-up
This is bloody awesome

I’m gonna solve a case
Only got John Watson as my partner
I – I – I’m hunting, looking for a come-up
This is bloody awesome

I’m gonna solve a case
Only got John Watson as my partner
I – I – I’m hunting, looking for a come-up
This is bloody awesome

Moriarty: “Miss me?”
