Buffy vs Edward Nominated for Webby Award

I’m excited to announce that my Buffy vs Edward: Twilight Remixed video has just been nominated for a 2010 Webby Award in the Best Remix/Mashup category! Hailed as the “Internet’s highest honor” by the New York Times, The Webby Awards is one of the leading international awards honoring excellence on the Internets.

 

Since its online debut last summer “Buffy vs Edward” has been viewed nearly 3 million times and has been translated into 30 different languages by fans (including Japanese, Bahasa Indonesia, Haitian Creole and Tagalog). The remix was created by methodically re-editing and re-combining clips from the Twilight movie with scenes from 36 different television episodes of Buffy the Vampire Slayer.

And just for fun I thought I’d share the most recent video response to “Buffy vs Edward” on YouTube. It’s a music video by Armoured Bearcub called “In Which Buffy Slays Edward”. My favorite line from their song – “Only when Edward calls Bella his drug is she any sort of heroine!”
