Buffy vs. Edward (Twilight Remixed)

September 8, 2009

 

What would Buffy do if the beloved (and powerfully feminist) vampire slayer encountered the Twilight series’ Edward Cullen? Video remix artist Jonathan McIntosh has crafted the answer.

McIntosh calls it:

“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,” he writes. The remix also functions as “a metaphor for the ongoing battle between two opposing visions of gender roles in the 21ist century.”

I just call it awesome!
