This vid, a celebration of (shall we say) a certain lifestyle with which I am familiar, is just starting to go viral:
What's kind of boggling to me is how good the editing and special effects are for something with little money behind it, and how bland and repulsive the high-end pro video it's parodying seems by comparison:
-- boring people doing boring things. Who *wouldn't* rather fight dragons in their minds?!?
It reminds me of the difference between Jane Austen's Fight Club:
(currently pulled from YouTube for copyright issues, as though "parody, DUH" wasn't a protected use) and the official Fight Club trailer:
Jane Austen's FC: interesting women struggling against a truly oppressive society. FC: whiny white guys struggling against boredom and the fact that they aren't the most successful whiny white guys. Not that Young Brad Pitt's hipbones are *boring* or anything, but if they're going to star they should at least be front & center more often.
eta: Sorry about the variable service as I got all the embed codes to work properly. Let me know if there are still problems.
