Video Gallery: The Best of 'My Little Pony' Pop-Culture Mash-Ups

Once upon a time, I saw one of the funniest mash-ups in the history of funny mash-ups: The “Madonna” speech from Reservoir Dogs laid over a scene from a My Little Pony cartoon. Alas, this piece of hilarity seems to have vanished, for I can no longer find it, which means that sadly, I cannot share it with you, Gentle Readers. However, in its stead, I offer these other mash-ups, in the hopes that they may provide you with much jollity and good feeling. Lord of the Rings? Got it. Scott Pilgrim? Got that, too.

1000 Awesome Things: Celebrity Edition

Life is in the details– especially when those details are awesome. Neil Pasricha began his blog 1000 Awesome Things in 2008 when his life was far from awesome.

The movie also coined the term for what has become a beloved gesture made by fans: “Sweding”, or remaking an entire film in a single edit. CollegeHumor’s new sketch (written by my friend Ben Joseph) has special guest stars Simon Pegg and Nick Frost, of the upcoming alien adventure-comedy Paul, decide to swede Star Wars: A New Hope. The problem is, they can only make it through one scene. More »
