Birth of a new meme?

Via Andrew Sullivan, video from Ferris Bueller's Day Off + music from Requiem for a Dream = Requiem for a Day Off:


I could see this being done with a lot of other films. The one problem is the length: four and a half minutes is an eternity to sustain what is essentially a one-note joke.

Update: Turns out it's only new to me. (Thanks, ironymaiden!)

Pretty amazing what that soundtrack does for the tone of the film. I half-expected to see Broderick getting his gangrenous arm cut off with a surgical saw.

that is beautiful.
this was the first one i saw (it was part of an editing competition in 2005).
here's a website that collects and rates them.

and here's the latest from AICE. i think my favorite so far is the one that turns the Incredibles into a ghost story.

Also, this re-worked version of Mary Poppins.

Though when you think about it the movie is basically about two rich British children who are put in the care of a witch, so that trailer isn't such a stretch.
