Nailed it.
The Pokemon Intro Recreated Using Only Stock Footage

From Matt Highton (of Spice Girls/Dune mashup fame) comes this video of the Pokemon cartoon intro recreated using only stock footage he edited together. The result is pretty impressive in a lot of ways, and pretty desperate in a lot of other ways (I’m looking at you, Blastoise). It kind of reminds me of the knock-off Pokemon toys I bought at the dollar store — Prokemüns I think they’re called. I tried passing them off to my niece and nephew for Christmas last year as the real deal, and they didn’t even bother to write thank-you cards. Those are some ungrateful kids you’re raising, Becky!
