Buffy vs Edward: Twilight Remixed

July 16, 2009

I just about fell out of my chair watching this. Proves yet again why Buffy is a way better role model than Bella.

YouTube – Buffy vs Edward: Twilight Remixed — [original version].

Commentary from creator Jonathan Mcintosh at http://www.RebelliousPixels.com:

In this remixed narrative, Edward Cullen from the Twilight Series meets Buffy the Vampire Slayer. 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. Ultimately this remix is about more than a decisive showdown between the slayer and the sparkly vampire. It also doubles as a metaphor for the ongoing battle between two opposing visions of gender roles in the 21st century.
