Today's Top Story: 'Game of Ponies'

By 04.05.12

This video, made by YouTube user adecoy95, is delightful. It takes the “Game of Thrones” intro and mashes it up with “My Little Pony,” because, well … I dunno why, so let’s just leave it at “because the Internet is great.” I’ve watched it like ten times since yesterday, and it has cracked me up each time — partially because the concept of one of the more violent and mature shows in television history getting crossed with cutesy little horsies is a fun juxtaposition, and partially because one time a horse got decapitated on the show and that made me think about all the “My Little Pony” characters getting brutally murdered. It’s the little things, people.

A little background: Dustin originally had this video attached to the bottom of yesterday’s What’s On Tonight post, as a fun little addition to the listings. When I saw the video, about 20 minutes before the post was about to go live, I immediately zipped off a breathless email begging him to let me use it for a standalone post. I even offered to send him a fruit basket. The reason I was so excited about it was not just because I think it’s neat and fun and something something pageviews, but also because it gives me an excuse to re-post my single favorite thing of all time: the video of the “My Little Pony” characters rapping along to Wu-Tang (NSFW audio). It takes all I have not to tack it onto EVERY post regardless of context, so when I have a legitimate excuse, I will jump all over it. You are all quite welcome.
