Buffy vs. Edward

Buffy vs. Edward. A couple people sent me that link, and it was FANTASTIC. “In this remixed narrative, Edward Cullen from the Twilight Series meets Buffy the Vampire Slayer at Sunnydale High. It’s an example of transformative storytelling serving as a visual critique of Edward’s character and generally creepy behavior. Seen through Buffy’s eyes some of the more patriarchal gender roles and sexist Hollywood tropes embedded in the Twilight saga are exposed in hilarious ways.” I did feel like kind of a nerd to immediately recognize the few shots from Harry Potter.

  1. That was awesome, if only for getting to see the Scoobies together again. And because Twilight couldn’t possibly hold a candle to The Whedon.

  2. True… but some would argue (and I’m with them) that Buffy is partly to blame for why we have such wussy vampires now anyway.

  3. that video is awesome. love it. “what are you 12?”

  4. I laughed so hard in so many places. And I too, recognised the HP scenes and thought.. “Ooh.. clever!”.. hehe.. Go Buffy!

  5. The first thing that went through my head was, I want that kind of free time.

  6. Oh man, that makes me miss Buffy so badly now. Who cares if the vampires are wussy as long as the heroine is KICK @$$? That’s what Twilight got wrong & that’s why I like True Blood so much also (it’s my grownup Buffy substitute).
