Rainbow Dash’s Rousing Song of Heroism by DagaYemar

power_ponies___zapp_by_sakurawolfer-d6zq3ot

Hello readers of PMVToday, NameGoes here with another PMV from DagaYamar.

As with the other PMV of his we showcased here, it’s a simple PMV to suit the relatively simple music. The simple editing style also fits the song as it heralds back to the classic PMV’s with the song,and you don’t need overly complicated visuals to accompany a song like this. It features Rainbow Dash and Spike mostly, but uses other characters where they fit in the song.

With a song like this, it makes you get scenes from many different things, as it talks about different powers and such, so they did a really good job in finding appropriate scenes for each lyric, which once again shows knowledge about the show. The lip sync is also well done, a necessity in a PMV like this, and I definitely appreciate the work that had to be put into it. The mood was also very, jolly you could say, throughout, and he did a good job of keeping that mood and using it well.

All in all, here we have a classic PMV that reminds us of those good old times of simple editing and simple visuals, and simple is nice. Go check it out below!

(EXPLICIT) A Very Special Message For a Very Special Someone by chocalicorn

pouting rarity

Hello, I’m NameGoes, and I am one of the writers here on PMV Today. You probably don’t know who I am, and that’s because I don’t make content for the fandom. Anyways, let’s get to this fun PMV by chocalicorn.

So, this video is obviously pointed at a certain ‘special’ someone, and I’m sure that he/she ‘enjoyed’ it. It features all of the mane six at some time or another (though not so much with Rarity and AJ) and boasts a very catchy song. I would definitely say it has a lighthearted feel through it, but it is rather difficult to categorize aside from saying its fun.

Something I really like about this PMV is the use of character expressions, body language, faces, etc, which definitely shows that chocalicorn knows the show and its scenes well. I also liked the presentation in general, the jolly and rather casual mood throughout really speaks for chocalicorn’s ability to carry a tone, and while the typography was somewhat simple, it was still well done for what it is, and is by no means lacking.

Overall, I really liked this PMV, and I hope you do too, go check it out below!

Spike’s Saga Begins by DagaYemar

friendship_is_the_force_by_johnjoseco-d3coipn

Who doesn’t love a bit of Weird Al? Well today’s PMV features one of his songs, and was edited by DagaYemar.

Now this is a very simple style PMV, and I wouldn’t have it any other way. It’s really enjoyable, and the choice of lyrics is both fitting and comedic. If the editing was more visual heavy, I don’t think it would’ve had the same impact, it wouldn’t have given the right feel.

All good Weird Al PMV’s use this style of editing, with simple edits and clever lip sync. And although the lip sync here isn’t perfect, there was definitely a good attempt made, and the creator has a lot of potential. It’s difficult to fill out a full 5 minutes and thirty seconds of PMV with show clips, without re using too many. DagaYemar has done a good job of avoiding this, which shows they have a good knowledge of all the episodes, and where to find the right clips.

It would be great to see more videos like this from them in the future.

How Applejack Won The War by Corpse Run Comics

AJWAR

Hello strangers! DeLoop’s back again, trudging through the PMV drought to bring you whippersnappers something to sink your teeth into. Don’t forget there’s a little under 2 weeks to submit your entries to our contest, by the way! We’re excited to see more entries from you guys.

Today I thought I’d feature an animation based on a song from the classic parody series “Friendship Is Witchcraft”. And man, it sure is hilariously dark. The animation certainly brings a whimsical charm to the original song, based on Applejack being a ruthless soldier and leading a war. There’s just something distinctly hilarious about the combination of lighthearted MLP and serious dark undertones. I guess that’s part of the reason I love FiW’s songs so much.

The art style and animation is great. It has a cartoon nature about it that works well. It’s not perfect and I’m not blown away by it, but it’s pretty good nonetheless. I especially enjoyed the musical elements that the animation played to, even incorporating some PMV elements throughout. It’s a fun little musical parody, one that we don’t get nearly enough of. I’d love to see more original animations in this style.

Ruminate on your crimes below.

Still Alive by Daga Yemar

Portal 2 was one of those games where you could get stuck on a level for hours and not care because there were BOXES involved.  Fun!

We haven’t had a genuinely funny PMV in a good while, so here’s a new one from Daga Yemar whose name is impossible to spell without auto correct butting in. -_-

Moving on, the video is a little rough at first being that you have to know Portal to really get all of the jokes and references.  But by the end, the jokes are obvious and still entertaining enough to make you smile even if you’re not a huge fan of the game or if you rage quit after level four.  Tons of literal interpretations of the lyrics and fantastic lip syncing also make this a great thing to watch.

So click the video below to start your adventure to space! SPACE!!!

The Ballad of Stephanie – Albuquerque by Mr Pilkington

30353__safe_twilight-sparkle_animated_derp_sonic-rainboom_eye-rolling

Hello ladies and gentlemen. Today, we’re going to go on a philosophical journey through the mind of Twilight Sparkle. 11 minutes and 25 seconds of pure Weird Al craziness in PMV form. Are you ready? I don’t think you’re ready.

Considering this came out in 2012 and goes on for over 10 minutes, this is some seriously impressive editing. Fantastic lip-sync, creative selection work with the lyrics, great pacing – I’m finding it hard to fault. It’s funny, inventive and well up there in my playlist of favourite PMV’s. Weird Al’s style works so well with MLP.

Have some classic Monday silliness below!

Spike Can’t Say Goodbye by DagaYemar

Spike_leaving_home_S1E24

Poor Spike. Little guy can’t even catch a break.

Today we’ve got a fun little video based on Spike’s desperation to be with Rarity despite her turning him down. As the song implies, he just can’t say goodbye to her and keeps coming up with excuses.

I actually saw [another PMV] to this song based on the Mane 6 a while ago. While I preferred the editing and variation in that one, I do like how this one focuses primarily on Spike’s feelings. A highlight for me had to be the fun scene selection showing potential tragedies for Rarity. Perhaps the video would’ve benefited from putting in more effort with the lipsync. As it stands, it’s partially synced which is a hit or miss situation throughout the video.

It was amusing to see the reactions of the other ponies. Daga really nailed down the characterization in the video. Spike rocking back and forth with a pillow especially. Looks like you’ve been completely and utterly friendzoned, buddy.

Check out the video below!

Hello folks, we have a treat for you tonight. I hope you like bright light induced seizures because this will certainly give you them.

This is what happens when you give 10 PMV editors too much time and let them go wild. I don’t think I have much else to say much on this… I’ll let it explain itself.

Giddy Up! by Limey Pie

I don’t know what in the world this song is from, but I gotta say it’s pretty relevant to horses. This video has a lot going on in a delightfully crazy way, with plenty of scenes appearing on top of each other and a myriad of interesting transitions. This is a great example of someone just having fun with editing, and I had a ton of fun watching!

Celestia Loves You by Terriccota Pie

832400__safe_princess+luna_princess+celestia_meme_animated_upvotes+galore_image+macro_stool_spinning_artist-colon-anticularpony

So let me be honest- I have no idea what is going on in this video or what Terricotta Pie had going through his head when he made it. I do however know that it is wonderfully silly.

I really don’t even know what to else write about this other than Celestia loves you, Twilight has a very Russian accent, and Pinkie is silly.

Just watch it.
