The Great Pinkie

A mashup between The Great Gatsby and My Little Pony. In this mashup I've added a few references from the novel into the video, so if you read the book, be o...

 

 

_________

A few days ago I scooped the movie trailer for the new Leonardo DiCaprio version of The Great Gatsby. In that scoop I mentioned the controversy over film adaptations of great works of literature. I mentioned that I happened to like the radicalized version of DiCaprio's Romeo and Juliet, yet I had reservations about the TNT version of Animal Farm. In the first case, I found the quite unusual adaptation quite appealing, yet in the second, I was truly annoyed by the straying from the original.

 

So, when I stumbled across this re-visioning of The Great Gatsby, I must say I wasn't quite certain whether there was something quite appealing or something quite repulsive about it. And, perhaps the truth is that both appeal and repulsion can co-exist in these sort of situations.

 

I'd certainly show it to students if I were teaching Gatsby. In fact, at one surface level, I quite like the comparison of say, Daisy's "princess" lifestyle with the whole My Little Pony emphasis upon bling and prettiness and such.

 

But, though I am not attracted to Daisy's lifestyle, it's difficult not to have compassion for her when she reveals her awareness that she has chosen to live a fraudulent life believing, "The best thing a girl can be in this world, a beautiful little fool."

 

It's almost too sadly confessional. I don't recall a similar recognition by the princesses in My Little Pony stories. Though, I must admit that my familiarity with the academic analysis relating to the thematic content of My Little Pony is thin at best.

 

In any case, there is sufficient evidence in the media and elsewhere that there are forces still at play guiding little girls to aspire to being nothing more than "beautiful little fools."

 

And of course, it should be noted that there are also still forces at play guiding little boys to believe that they have a gender-based privilege that makes aspiring to become a Tom Buchanan appear to be a worthy ambition.

 

We still have much work to do, don't we?
