‘My Little Pony’ Trailer Mashups Pony Up with ‘Scott Pilgrim’ and ‘V For Vendetta’
Remember last summer, when there was a metric ton of videos floating around mashing up the trailer for Scott Pilgrim vs. the World with pretty much everything? Well, it's happening again, this time with the Internet's favorite show about rainbows and unicorns, My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic, and this week the two finally collided with Spike Pilgrim vs. The World.
As seen on Topless Robot, Spike Pilgrim mashes up the story of Scott Pilgrim's troubles wooing his beloved Ramona Flowers with the unrequited cross-species crush of a baby dragon on a fashion designing unicorn pony, but that's not the only comic-themed MLP mashup floating around either. In P For Pinketta, the perkily pleasant party pony Pinkie Pie becomes a stand in for for the masked anarchist hero of Alan Moore's V For Vendetta. Check out both trailers after the jump!
The great thing about both of these trailers are the little touches added into the editing process, like the blink-and-you'll-miss it punnery of Spike Pilgrim being brought to you by the director of Trot Fuzz and Unicorn of the Dead. I've always wondered if Equus Wright did any other films. Also, there's the lineup of Rarity's Evil Exes, which flips the script on Ramona's League by including the show's only major male character in a lineup of ladies, and the genius of Chris Evans as Fluttershy. That is a movie I would pay good money to see.
As for Pinketta, the subtle inclusion of the stern, fan-made Equestria Election poster of Princess Celestia was a pretty nice touch, even if I don't get the tendency to cast her as an iron-fisted -- er, iron-hoofed dictator. I mean, really, just because she locked her own sister away in the moon for a thousand years. Have you ever had a sister? It's a totally viable option.
Either way, it's a great time for the Motion Picture Association of Equestria.
