...What do you mean?   It says right in the title/gif captions who it's by...  and the same Hillywood Show video posted above!!

Speaking of....   ha, Lily, you beat me to it.  Knowing all summer they were working on a freaking Sherlock one (and even went to London for it!!!), and waiting for them to finish, then I find out first thanks to Sue tweeting compliments about it!!  Pretty much did a happy dance and sound of surprised excitement in my chair, lol.   The Hillywood sisters are amazing!  Putting it all together, writing, editing, filming, looking so great as the characters.... now we have musical parodies of pretty much all the major ones - Potter, Supernatural, LOTR/Hobbit, Doctor Who, Hunger Games, Walking Dead, and Sherlock!  Yay!

(as an aside, I'm wondering if I'm the only one, not to be a downer or anything, who was a little 'eh' at the song style at first... just didn't feel as easy/catchy as their other songs, not always crazy about rap-ish style.... but watched it several times and growing on me!)

You don't have to point it out that way. (!!) I'm not stupid.
I am at work, same yesterday, and I can't watch any video in the office. So I'm not able to check. I don't know the Hillywood Show and if they maybe did more than one parody.

Re: Fan Videos

I must be the only person who didn't like it.  The production itself is extremely good: the film quality is superb and the fact that much of it was shot in the proper locations and even on the actual 221B set is praiseworthy. They’ve also done a really good job of finding locations/making sets that match the originals where they couldn’t film in situ.

However, the music – especially at the beginning of the video when it was so loud and irritating that I almost turned off – is annoying. The chorus is repeated far too frequently and became grating after a while.

And – I checked the transcripts – Sherlock has said the word “bloody” just once in all ten episodes, and that was when he was talking about John’s blog entry entitled “The Bloody Guardsman.” Using that word as the ‘punchline’ of each chorus smacks of giggling schoolgirls daring to use a very slightly rude word. Neither – unsurprisingly – has Sherlock ever said, “awesome.” Not even John has said, “awesome,” in the series! Surely the purpose of clever parody is to stay as close as possible to the personality and vocal style of the person you’re parodying.

Despite me only watching it a few times, the damned tune is determined to become an earworm in my head. I am equally determined not to let it, and have been humming anything else to keep it out!

All in all, after all the hype and despite its great production, I found the video disappointing and childish.

Re: Fan Videos

What impressed me the most about this video was how uncannily alike they were to Sherlock and John in their mannerisms. Without close-ups, they could've fooled me (I've seen gifs taken from the video that I thougth where from the actual show before I had a second look). The level of work they've put into replicating the movments is astounding!

I'm so sorry, I really didn't mean it that way, gently!!  Yeah, I guess I come across that way sometimes, even IRL... just was curiously surprised, even if didn't get a chance to see video yet, that saw someone post a 'Hillywood' thing, and the gifs are captioned the same.  But yes, sometimes we're checking from our phones or work and don't see.  So, sorry.

And Ariane -- yes!  Despite my praise for them in my last post and love of the creative coolness (and fun) of the quality level of parodies they put out, I was the same way about the song!  I went from being 'omg, yaaay, their Sherlock one is out, omg!' to '....wait... what?  this song is kinda grating!  this is what we get for the Sherlock one? (sadface)'  but unfortunately the song is a bit of an earworm, yes, and grew on me a little.  So, I don't know...   Even the blatant earworm of their Supernatural one was easier to enjoy having in head.

I'm also sorry. Maybe I overreacted. Overreacted? Hmm.. reminds me of... http://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons/wink.png

I wondered if you were familiar or not!  You got it almost right, but the tags need to be [video], not [url].  And on some videos, they've even given me a little trouble unless I change https (secure) to http.

This vid is so impressive and underlines the gravity of Sherlock's fight back into life. I know it might not be fair to say so, but for me, the whole shallow "redemption" scene with Mary destroys the epic statement of this one.

Re: Fan Videos

The vid SusiGo posted really is heartbreaking http://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons/depressed.png
but here's sommething lighter.

Ok, so you probably all know these, but I just discovered them so I though I'd share at least one of them just in case. The person who made that one made several others and they're all hilarious. One of them is with the lyrics of an Ozzy Osbourne song in French, with some silly accent.

Re: Fan Videos

A comparison between the Hillywood parody and the real show. I think some of the similarities are quite stunning.
