Notes: Premiered at Vividcon Challenge 2012.

This had an amazing reaction at the show. I was so, so happy that people got what I was trying to do here (or, failing that, found it amusing). I could not have done it without the usual suspects of [personal profile] echan, [ profile] diannelamerc, and [ profile] lizbetann (and brand-new usual suspect [personal profile] anoel).

You can blame this whole vid on my co-workers, who would incessantly play this song until it wormed its way into my head and I thought, you know... you could use this. You could use it to say something about maybe, like, a director or something... And this happened.

This is sheer genius oh my god. I never thought I'd see someone make a vid to this song but you did it and it's amazing and hilarious, I can't even.

O. M. G.




I can't even describe . . . what you have done and how brilliantly you have done it. JUST. OMG.

I was watching the vid and I thought it was all SRS BSNS and then CAPTAIN JACK SPARROW kept interrupting the SRS GANGSTA BSNS and that was funny. And then it just went completely down the crapper in a totally awesome way, because LO, it turned into WILLIAM DEFOE AND JESUS/FORREST GUMP and TAXI DRIVER and WTF IS THIS EVEN OMG.

I just about died laughing. Great fusion and a great way to sort of (gently) take the piss out of Scorcese. Sometimes he needs it . . .

Linked via I'm not sure how.

This is hilarious. I may be the only person who liked Age of Innocence, because the costumes OMG. And I'm a bit squeamish, so it can be a lot of work to appreciate something like Goodfellas.

But yeah, it must sometimes be frustrating to get boxed in by your previous work and have everyone react negatively to something before they've even seen it because it's obviously not your usual thing.

Vid of the con for me - just. Yes.

Okay, so you had me at the "jack sparrow" and "Kiera knightly" inserts and then the Goodfella's reactions, all of that was just expertly done and timed and I appreciated the craftmanship in that.

But then Jesus was Forrest Gump and I just lose it. I start to gain it back and then suddenly this whole towns a pussy just waiting to get fucked and I'm gone again and then and then I think it is safe and nope. Shutter island. Just. Wow.

Totally brilliant. Tho I am glad I subjected various con-going people to the original Lonely Island vid as soon as I saw this on the program, in the hopes that you would make it pay off. And you did. Context is everything, and this made me laugh til I cried. *g*
