For those who, like me, have not read the Twilight series, nor seen the movie, you can now feel completely justified. This jewel of a video located in an article at io9 about why vamps have become heartthrobs is too funny to miss. The video is the first vid, right under the photo of Angel and Spike at the top of the article. But fair warning, don’t watch it on your laptop in the middle of a staff meeting. I was doing all I could to keep from howling with laughter at my desk. If the rest of the writing in Twilight is as dreadful as the few lines we hear from Edward in these clips, it astonishes me that millions of teenage girls have not clawed their own eyes out. I think I literally cringed.
I also never saw one episode of BTVS, I’m starting to think that was a mistake:
“I’m the Slayer. S L A Y E R. The Chosen One. Look it up.”
As always be sure to read the comments accompanying the article, that’s often the best part.
