It’s Friday and you know what that means…time for Fan Videos that will help you with ALL your end of the week procrastination. This week we spotlight “It’s Time” by Imagine Dragons. This song is perfect for shows with large ensembles and it allows the vidder to showcase all the possible friendships and romances within one cast. Bonus points if said ensembles enjoy the occasional dance party…they work perfectly with the soaring chorus of the song.
I would also like to PUBLICLY shame the fandom of Parks and Recreation (where ARE you guys btw) for not having a video to this song. Come ON people! This song SCREAMS Leslie Knope and the Pawnee gang. Get it together.
This is probably one of the most definitive Community fan videos and it is ALSO probably one of the best fan vids I have ever seen. Period. Everything is amazing from the way the sound effects are timed to the music to moments from the show matching perfectly with lyrics. Now excuse me whilst I go cry in a corner from being overwhelmed with Study Group OTP feels.
The Mindy Project
Does this video perfectly showcase the arc of The Mindy Project or what? Mindy went from “kiiiiiiiiiiinda disappointing” to “oh hey this isn’t bad!” to “OMG WHEN IS THE NEXT EPISODE?!” in the span of a season and a half and we’re just so proud of it. And forever thankful to Mindy Kaling for bringing Danny Castellano into our lives.
This video expertly uses the one-liners that have made Mindy a true delight and we are definitely looking forward to more and more videos that use Season Two footage.
Guys. I can’t with this one. From the PERFECTLY used opening and closing dialogue to all the montages of our dearly departed gang at Dunder -Mifflin, this makes me want to do a series rewatch RIGHT NOW.
I thought this song would be one to NOT give me feels, but thus far all three make me want to cry happy tears.
How I Met Your Mother
After seeing Neil Patrick Harris KILL IT this week in Hedwig and the Angry Inch, I am trying REALLY HARD to forgive How I Met Your Mother. It’s not going to be easy. It’s going to take some time. But videos like this one make me remember the good times.
Though I did have another video bookmarked for this show, but it heavily featured Tracy and I WAS TOO MAD TO USE IT. So clearly, I am still in the early stages of the healing process.
Like your favorite comfort food, The Central Perk gang will always be there for you. I don’t find NEARLY enough Friends fan videos, and this one is a DELIGHT.
I didn’t even know fan vids that celebrated the Bravermans existed, so I squealed with joy when I stumbled upon this. You wouldn’t think a show as weepy as Parenthood would work with this song, but those Bravermans DO enjoy their dance parties.
We haven’t had some JohnLock in a while, so it’s time to remedy that.
The Tenth Doctor – Doctor Who
Oh, come on. You KNOW we always have to have a Doctor Who video in these posts. It’s not an overtly shippy one though, so there.
And that’s it for this week! Next week we go back to the melancholy with the “it” so melancholic it’s really bad but also good song: “Say Something” by Great Big World. Have a good weekend!
