MY LITTLE PONY: Live-Action Trailer (What did you think?)

Secret Sauce sent us this personally on Twitter so I feel obligated to post it even though it’s kinda weak. There are a few cute parts and it definitely had some potential but I was really hoping to laugh out loud and the most I did was smile once. I actually rolled my eyes a few times which is never a good sign. My literal first thought after seeing this was “weak sauce” so perhaps putting sauce in their name was a poor idea on their part.

Rise of the Buttercup Sprinkles? I mean, if you are going to take the time to make a whole video, you can’t just take the time to Google an actual MLP name? Jamie Oliver did! And it was too long. It would have been a cute gag at half the length but after seeing the same Photoshopped colored horse gag several times I felt like we were beating a dead horse. Or pony.

I think it probably meant to be funny to people who have never really heard of My Little Pony before as it is mostly a bunch of spray painted horses which impeded my enjoyment of the video. As a long time horsewoman, this actually totally upset me for some reason because all I could think of was that I hoped they used something that would be safe for the poor horses and whether it would give them a rash. I imagine this hang-up is mine and mine alone because of my years doing horse health care and I am willing to acknowledge that.

But, hey, it is hard to make a video and comedy is never easy and very subjective, I definitely understand that. They obviously put a lot of work into it and it was a good effort and shows some potential for future videos. I am giving them the benefit of the doubt and posting it either way because I think it was a bold idea for them to try even if it wasn’t as good as I wanted it to be.

That said, did you enjoy the trailer? What did you like or not like about it?

Better yet, what would you have put into a Live Action MLP movie trailer? Someone want to make one?

As for me, I still prefer Robot Chicken’s Apocalypse Pony.

Celebrity chef Jamie Oliver names newest daughter after a My Little Pony

This story is a few weeks old but I missed it and I am sure some of you did as well so I figured it would post it anyway.

Jamie Oliver, best known as TV’s The Naked Chef, just named his most recent daughter (born on April 3rd, 2009) Petal Blossom Rainbow Oliver. Never mind how incredibly awesome this name is, the bigger question is why aren’t Poppy Honey and Daisy Boo, the names of his other two daughters, also My Little Pony names?

So my question for the community at large is, if you were going to name your child after a My Little Pony, which one would you name it after?

Secondly, if there were ponies named Poppy Honey and Daisy Boo, what would they look like?

Oh and if you don’t remember what the MLP Petal Blossom looked like in the first place, there were actually two Petal Blossoms, one was a G2 and one was a G3. Both, oddly enough, were purple with pink hair. Look at both Petal Blossom versions here to jog your memory.
