The Key of Awesome parodies Eminem and Rihanna's 'Love the Way You Lie' grade-school style: Watch here

Oh, those crazy Key of Awesome kids! The folks who brought you that “Telephone” parody and that other Ke$ha/Bieber/Gaga parody and a bunch of other such YouTube shenanigans have now turned their sights on Eminem and Rihanna’s “Love the Way You Lie.”

In their hands, the somber domestic-violence lesson becomes a cutesy story about two elementary schoolers. “You stole my heart and you stole my bike,” sings a Rihanna impersonator, “But that’s all right, because I love the way you like.” See what they did there?

Click through to the jump to see the Key of Awesome’s “Love the Way You Lie” parody video. Funny? Lame? You tell us.
