Silly or serious?

Posted on | August 18, 2009 | 3 Comments |

Vampires are a hugely popular part of today’s culture, but they’ve been part of mythology and folklore for centuries. Both of which mean there’s a large body of work focused on the vampire – some silly and some serious. Guess which I pay more attention to?

So here, for your delectation, are some vampire-y pleasures. Enjoy, and make sure you’ve entered the competition (you’ve only got until Friday!).

I’m not quite sure what The Electric Company and Morgan Freeman were trying to achieve here, other than teaching us how to spell ‘casket’. But bubbles and loofah and Count Dracula? Why not! (Also, I’ve never seen Morgan without classy wrinkles. Goodness!)

And who the heck thought that ‘Ketchup Vampire’ would be a good 80′s kids animation? *blinks* The credit song may be right – ‘there’s no such thing as a ketchup vampire!’

Vampires have been used to advertise a disturbing number of products, too. Not just ketchup, but also cokepoptartspizza,beer and sunglasses. But the one I like the best? It’s for makeup!

Now, most readers know that I am a) a huge fan of Buffy, and b) not a fan at all of Twilight. (Granted, I haven’t read the books, although I have now been lent the first, which I have been informed I must read before I am allowed to declare utter loathing). That said, I adore this remix that pits Buffy against Edward. It’s a re-imagined narrative, and very well done indeed!

So there you have it – I like the silly side of life, biting, and pointy sticks. Hopefully you were amused as well!

    Yes the twilight movie bit the dust. Hopefully, now the new one, with it's bigger budget, will do better. I think casting was a major fail. BUT the books are SO much better. I love em and I'm speeding through the 3rd one.

    You don't actually have to read Twilight to find out how much it sucks. You can feel it by just by holding the book.

    Mina – I shall let you know what I think of the first one once I read it.

    bd – not sure what you actually mean by this. The book radiates suckiness?
