Centuries by xindit

Hmm, this song sounds strangely similar…

Never mind that, it’s time for a new rendition of the hit by Fall Out Boy, and this time a little simpler with an entirely different theme.  I just love how people can take the same song, same available content, and turn it all into something entirely new without necessarily having to use effects to exaggerate that difference.  And in this new piece, we also see some fan content thrown in!

“How is it different?” you ask?  Well my friends, it’s quite simple.  In the traditional thought of many in the fandom, Centuries’ message and lyrics could apply boldly and only to T. Sparklez and the crew.  They would be remembered positively for their victories over the villains.  However, in this video, we see some spotlight shed on Sunset Shimmer, who the editor seems to imply, will be remembered for centuries because she kind of turned into a demon in the previous movie and that ain’t something that really just slips your mind.

The PMV does focus on other villains though, and it seems to be a theme that can apply to a wide variety of characters.  xindit’s take is one of a kind, so you should check it out below!

Centuries by rainbowdashzx And Friends

These horses look like they are %120 ready to listen to some Fall Out Boy save Equestria and be forever recognized for it in a stained glass window somewhere!

That’s pretty much their job description, right?  Anyway, the collab scene in the world of PMVs had slowed down for a good bit before we hit this wonderful piece of editing.  And now that rainbowdashzx and the crew have brought it back together I’m just anxious to see some more great editing like this!

My favorite part is probably the effects and continuity, which are hard to achieve when not everybody uses the same program nor has the same capabilities.  Even in this video, we’ll find that some of the editors used that fancy shmancy AE CC 2014, and others were caught with free (although flexible) video stringers.  With this in mind, it seems like everybody worked extra hard to continue a flow that should be almost impossible to keep.  The only part that didn’t seem necessary was the almost excessive use of typography in place of ponies, but what can you do when #Season5 doesn’t even have a release date yet?  We’re running out of scenes, yo!

Regardless, check out this exceptional video that you could watch on repeat for centuries! Or until Season 5, whichever comes first.
