First off, I want it made clear that I cannot take full creative credit for how the song was altered. I first heard this song from this video and many of the changes made mimic it. http://www.youtube.com/watc... By the time I started editing this video I hadn't realized how much this version differed from the original song and had planned this video around Corsair's edit. Though I did make a few of my own changes, I just want to make sure this is known.
Secondly, I consider this video unfinished. The deadline for the contest forced me to cut some corners. I wanted it to be longer and I didn't want to use Green Screen Ponies. When I eventually make the full version I will fix this.
Now, about the video itself. I've never done a video like this before. Its title could easily have been "Silk Discovers Rotobrush." But that wouldn't have served what I was trying to communicate. One of the repeated lines in the song is "Nicotine from a Silver Screen" and by replacing Nicotine with Ponies I was illustrating their dangerously addictive nature. That is ultimately what this video is about: The darker side of the experience of being/becoming a brony.
The rules of Iron Chef generally go like this. I and my opponent select 5 video sources that we can edit with, and the coordinator picks one at random and then gives us the song we are going to use. Then, using the selected source and song, we both have X hours (usually two) to make a music video. Whoever makes the better video is the winner.
