Run, Forrest, run! The parody videos are coming.

Now that the 1995 Academy Award winner for Best Picture is approaching its 20th birthday, YouTube’s Screen Junkies are ready to give Forrest Gump their Honest Trailer treatment. Like Bubba rattling off different kinds of shrimp, this video comedically lists all the questionable plot points to be found in Forrest Gump.

For all that Forrest has done in 40 years of American history, isn’t it strange no one in the movie recognizes him from his past achievements?

Could Jenny be anymore manipulative?

But seriously, what’s with the feathers?

This clip is out to upset Tom Hanks’s box of chocolates and to prove that just saying “Okay!” can get you pretty far in cinematic life.

And that’s all we have to say about that.
