Today is going to be the day that you hear the parody you need.
By now, you should have realized that this must involve Joe Hendry.
I don’t believe that anybody knew they needed this…
Joe Hendry made a name for himself with light-hearted parody songs concerning the opponents that he would be stepping in the ring with. Now, he is applying his Weird Al Yankovic-level parody skills to celebrate the reopening of McDonald’s drive-thrus on May 15th.
To celebrate this, Joe Hendry has, of course, chosen the Oasis smash hit, Wonderwall as the song to parody. While the singing is in tune and the lyrics are fun, perhaps the biggest takeaway is that the video also emulates the sibling rivalry of Liam and Noel Gallagher which ultimately led to Oasis meeting its demise.
Hendry’s Wonderwall parody continues to rack up incredible stats on social media platforms, already accounting for 3.8 million hits so far, and climbing.

“When I was doing this Ring Of Honor quiz, I couldn’t believe the level of detail that these fans could go into. They knew every title change, everything, a crazy amount of detail. It just made me realize how awesome the fan base is and I’ve never taken this job for granted.
One thing we did get to talking about was the ROH Pure Championship series. That was going to be—I was so looking forward to that. I’ve only ever wrestled one match, fully in that style, from start to finish. It was me versus Timothy Thatcher and literally, it was a case of ‘see you out there’ and we went out there and did our thing. I’m gutted that I couldn’t take part in this [new] tournament and this all happened before that. I really felt it was a chance to show something completely different that I know I can do. So if you want to check that out, I had a match with Timothy Thatcher that was like a ‘pure style’ match.”
Stay tuned for our full interview with Joe Hendry, where we talk about how he’s staying busy and coming up with new material, going viral with his song parodies, what he misses about working with Dalton Castle and much more.
