Nintendo may not ever be on the leading edge of gaming, but it writes some bangers. Even the Wii shop song—which is essentially the home console version of hold music—is fertile ground for mashups. Soundcloud’s obsession with the Wii Shop jam also intersected with many of its other memes (“Bonfire,” Smash Mouth/Shrek,
That first big trailer for The Force Awakens was great, and we’ve established that anytime you cut another movie in the same style, the end result is just as great. So what happens when you recut Harry Potter with it? Perfection.
Even if you don’t know the Dire Straits song “Walk of Life” by name you’ll recognize it immediately when you hear it. Fun fact: It’s the perfect song to end any movie.
Oh, what a lovely day.
CSI:Cyber is Gizmodo’s new favorite terrible tech-tinged procedural that may or may not be written by people who have never actually seen a computer. It’s great! This compilation of buzzwords from the fourth and fifth episodes of this season is a nonsense cacophony.
It's the age old question that has seen nerds gesticulate wildly at each other for decades - Enterprise vs. Star Destroyer. Bat'leth vs. Lightsaber. Vader vs. Kirk. But it turns out there are only winners (that's us) when Star Wars and Star Trek go toe-to-toe in this very silly, very fun trailer mashup.
Turns out, people really like mashing Marvel and Star Wars together with other things. Between the countless mashups and parodies for both The Force Awakens and Age of Ultron, there now lies this pretty sublime mix of the two franchises.
The odds of Disney and Warner teaming up to have their live-action superheroes go toe to toe on the big screen actually happening in reality are practically non existent - but that doesn't stop Youtuber Alex Luthor (presumably not related to Lex) from mashing them together in this brilliant fan trailer.
Sadly, the wonderful Legend of Korra doesn't have long for this world - but hey Nickelodeon, any chance you could spin it off into a Power Rangers style series about Benders? As this mashup proves, it could be pretty damn amazing.
Well, I don't think anyone saw this coming. Book of Eli, After Earth (and upcoming Star Wars) scribe Gary Whitta has released a script imagining if the stuffy world of British drama Downton Abbey was part of the Marvel Universe - and how Tony Stark's dad would fit in with Lord Grantham and family.
Another day, another delightful mashup for the Avengers: Age of Ultron trailer - we've got another 6 months of this before the movie's out! However, this one is all the more mournful thanks to it using footage from the dearly missed Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes cartoon. God, I miss EMH.
Nick Acosta is a man of many talents - not only have we featured his gorgeous Star Trek Cinerama pictures on the site before, but it turns out he's got a pretty good eye for rescoring, too, as this genius mashup between Battlestar Galactica and Top Gun proves. Get ready for a lot of Danger Zone.
Don't be surprised if in the future crazy scientists will have tampered with genetics so much that they'll create insane animal hybrid mashups. And not just designer dogs but psycho frigs, horsquirrels, eagluanas and chinchillapotamuses. They'll probably look a lot like these excellent photoshopped animals.
Turns out, the American motion picture and music recording industry loves weed just as much the rest of us do. For more than 60 years, weed's been getting name-dropped in pop culture—from early propaganda videos like Reefer Madness to more recent celebrations of stoner culture like Half Baked. Eclectic method…
It's kind of hard not to like mashups. They're gimmicky after a while, but it's fun to hear songs you know and love mixed with other songs you know and love. When you take two artists you know and love and create a whole mashup album, it's crazy fun.
Another year, another massive mashup. That means it's time for the United States of Pop, mixmaster DJ Earworm's annual amalgam of the top 25 Billboard hits of the year.
If you haven't seen any of Pogo's mesmerizing and melodious film remixes, please please do that now. Once you've been entranced, come back here and watch this video about the man behind the magic.
Mashing up two wonderful things into one ridiculously wonderful thing should be the constant goal of mankind. That's how we got smartphones. And gummy bears infused with alcohols. And designer drugs. One Minute Galactica imagined what would happen if we mashed up Star Wars and Jurassic Park and they came up with…
Emergency radio during a hurricane is undeniably fascinating (and potentially life-saving). But you need to know where to listen. You Are Listening To tracks emergency radio for you, combining it with ambient music for a mesmerizing, if creepy, experience.
