Hannah (Alice Cullen in the parodies) and Hilly (Bella Swan) are the official hosts of the Twilight Conventions.
The girls decided to continue on with “The Hillywood Show,” and 15 webisodes and several film parodies later, the show is an online hit.About a year and a half ago, their Twilight parody was released; and the show’s ratings skyrocketed.The nine minute Twilight music video parody has over 4.275 million hits.In 2006, 16-year-old Hilly Hindi entered an AOL contest for teens to create their own web series.Her submission, a pop-culture parody called The Hillywood Show, came in third, but it set Hilly (along with her older sister, Hannah) on the path to Internet stardom.
The single episode generated enough interest for Hilly to enlist Hannah to help her create more videos for the recently launched You Tube.
Their first big hit was a 2009 musical parody of Twilight, which currently has more than 10 million views, while a later parody of Breaking Dawn is the sisters’ most-watched video ever, with more than 25 million views.
Videos like that, along with celebrity shout-outs from the likes of Lady Gaga and Breaking Dawn director Bill Condon, brought the sisters to the attention of Chris Hardwick’s geek-focused online network Nerdist.
With Nerdist’s backing, the sisters have turned making online videos into their full-time occupation—so far they’ve released two videos (one each on The Walking Dead and The Lord of the Rings) under the new partnership.
“Now we can put all hours of the day into everything that we’re doing for the show,” Hannah says, promising a new video every other month, making 2015 by far the biggest Hillywood year yet.
Jack Sparrow, Alice Cullen, Bella Swan, Joan Jett, Cherie Currie, The Joker, Harley Quinn, Sweeney Todd and William Turner — Hannah Hindi, 24, and Hillary Hindi, 20, of “The Hillywood Show” online have played them all and more in their online parodies that have arrested the humor of millions.
