Here is cheerful Pinkie Pie to help you recover from last night’s frights. Featuring the Living Tombstone version of the happiest song in the world, the Smile Song! This video uses a really cute felt-like effect for the background and characters, but the main event is the awesome typography throughout the whole video. The text is all very well timed, with lots of different fonts and colors to keep it interesting. Definitely a PMV that keeps me smiling the whole way through!
The author of this video reached back into the ancient times of 1970 in order to ponify this song. Really great use of multiple scenes shown at the same time, with the individual videos synched to the music and even having their own transitions. Also liked how behind each rotate transition there was a different nice piece of artwork as the background.
Here’s a video focusing on a background pony we haven’t had before: Featherweight the photographer. The author of this video does an amazing job of making you feel like you are following the action from behind a camera. Little details like imitating the camera auto-focus and changing the zoom and brightness meters to match what is going on in the video are a great touch. How does Featherweight manage to be everywhere at once anyway, is he a ninja? Or maybe he’s just been taking physics breaking lessons from Pinkie.
Weezer has been inspiring people to be themselves for years, so it’s only natural that it would get crossed with ponies eventually. This particular song is a perfect fit for the scene where Twilight and her friends crash the snobby rich ponies party, and this video uses it very well. The whole video features a nice selection of scenes and I like the use of Scootaloo face→piano.
If you are feeling down, there is no better medicine than a good PMV! This is a video that will make you smile, plain and simple. The scene selection includes many of the most cheerful parts of the show, and they are matched to the song lyrics quite well. More evidence that songs by Owl City, especially this one, are a perfect fit for ponies.
The title of this video in an apt description of what you will experience while watching, and really doing anything pony related. I love how the kinetic typography in this video is interspersed throughout, so we get a good taste of both well edited pony scenes and typography. Not only that, but the song lyrics are also worked into the flow of some of the scenes, which is very cool. Overall a very happy PMV, maybe we need a feel good category?
I love this video, but I have one big problem with it: The title is a logical impossibility, you can’t have too much ponies! The video is short and sweet with a cool use of many different show scenes as the background, and an interesting pony vector scattering effect. Now I just need one more shot of ponies, I can stop any time I want I swear…
This song and video is so cheerful, it had my smiling for a good while after it ended. I am a big fan of including the song lyrics in the video, but sometimes it is hard to place them in a way that isn’t distracting. This video does a really good job of adding the lyrics in a way that only enhances the overall product.
