Mashup: When ‘Winnie the Pooh’ Met ‘Grey’s Anatomy’

I was super excited when I found out they were making a new Winnie the Pooh movie. I bought into their promises- no modernization, no crazy 3-D, just a willy, nilly, silly old bear and memories of juice boxes and nap time. So as the trailer came on, I was ready for the rush of nostalgia. Instead I got Keane. They were playing a hipster-y Grey’s Anatomy montage song while Pooh searched for honey, while Tigger bounced, and the nostalgia was stopped cold. Suddenly I was thinking, oh my god, Pooh’s coding, and what the hell are Rabbit and Eeyore doing in that supply closet?

I’m no match for mood music, so if Grey’s Anatomy is what they want their audience to get out of the latest trip through the hundred acre woods, here’s a handy guide to make the connections a little easier.

Let me know if I forgot any Pooh-Grey’s match-ups!
