I've been meaning to put this up for a few weeks, but I dunno. While I'm absurdly proud of it, I'm still a little embarrassed to admit that I've sunk back into a fandom again (even though I'm not completely mired in it yet).
The following video is a collaboration of many artists in the "Brony" community. They took a song--the most awesome song in the whole series so far, by my own opinion--and created a We-Are-The-World type version featuring some of the most prolific music makers who are fans of My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic.
Here is the original song, sung by Pinkie Pie, the carefree, crazy, and slightly bipolar optimist in the series:
This song has become rather special to me. Not only are the lyrics cheerful and uplifting, but the music is particularly peppy and catchy (at least for me, since I like that poppy stuff). I sing the song so much that The Wiggler is now familiar with it, and we dance along in the kitchen while I change the lyrics to include his name.
The new video, dubbed the "Massive Smile Project," is below:
Now, I know it won't make much sense to most people, and yeah, it's kinda weird if you don't know anyone in the community, but, you do know someone in the video. I made it as one of the chorus members. <^m^> I'm listed in the credits under the name Lady Grey.
You can catch a glimpse of my pony self at the 3:28 mark.
The best thing about this song is that it's been included in a charity album entitled, "Seeds of Kindness." They've already reached and exceeded their first goal, which was staffing a clinic in Uganda. Now, they have their sights set on building a self-sufficient village in Burundi for civil war orphans.
More information on the fundraiser and these projects can be found at Seeds of Kindness, Bronies for Good, and themassivesmileproject.com.
Keep on smiling, everyone!
