When Buffy Met Edward....

To celebrate the unblocking of YouTube (with provisos) by my employer, here's a video: (This is just wonderful!  - I fell off my chair laughing!)

I've seen it in a number of places, library blogs, book blogs.  It originated from Rebellious Pixels, where it is described thus:
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 pro-feminist visual critique of Edward’s character and generally creepy behavior. Seen through Buffy’s eyes some of the more sexist gender roles and patriarchal Hollywood themes embedded in the Twilight saga are exposed in hilarious ways.

And oh yes, it is funny!

Cheers, Ruth

Hi Ruth. You might also like to let people know about this very interesting blog post with the creator of the mashup - interesting stuff, particularly for teachers interested in using the clip for gender studies!
