Graham_LRR:

The crew deals with an equine problem.

What was on that screen that made you both blush ? ...Interesting... :)

UPdates! (for whoever needs it)
welcome to the herd
it's the same image as some facebooker posted.

1) spoiler box that Gif, if you may. It's rather large.

For the record, I am, and remain, the sole member of LRR that has more than a passing interest in MLP:FiM. Shame, really.

They have not been welcomed to the "herd". Just so you know.

Edit: Derp, I told you to spoiler the Gif, and I forgot to do it myself.

As well, Matt, I'm reeeealy sorry that I keep quoting you to point out when people are mistaken.

TimeLord:
So wait... Are you all Bronies (and Pegasisters) now? Or are you just trying to raise the hopes of your fan base? Because I seem to remember Graham distancing himself from MLP stuff during Desert Bus ;)

We may never know...

They could have just been watching porn all along you know ;)

hmm, mlp? never heard of it. Sounds like I should check it out tho!

DJShire:
For those of you who don't know, I don't care for MLP:FiM. I gave it a shot, and its a good kids show...that I have no interest in.

I also don't like some of bronies....some. Being fans of something is entirely ok, as long as you CHECK YOURSELF and don't TURN INTO FANATICS ABOUT IT. There is the stereotype of the brony, which is actually the vocal, zealous, crazy minority that I don't like and get infinite lulz from trolling just because its easy and the response is almost always the same: they tell me how wrong I am, they try to convert me....its HILARIOUS.

Just to be clear... REAL bronies won't actively try to recruit new people against their will. We really don't mind if you don't like the show. To each their own.

We try to distance ourselves from the fanatics. Look up "Pizza Hut Bronies" on YouTube and you'll see why.

Great video BTW. That's pretty much what happens. Someone says WTF is this about MLP? Then they decide to watch one episode to see what it's about. Then they watch all the episodes. And then we pull out that "Welcome to the Herd" pic.

yeah pretty much every group of people has a subset that makes the rest look bad and the majority try and distance themselves from. Gamers have homophobic/racist XBL trolls, Christans have insane fundamentalists like the WBC, Furries have well, the crazy sex kind (dunno what they would call them). It's sad but true that those outside will get bad impressions of the people as a whole because of them but there really isn't much that can be done. You can try and educate people I guess, but it seems alot of people don't want to listen (try making a thread that informs people that most furries aren't the sex with fur suits on kind and see where that gets you).

TopazFusion:
And I was just thinking, we haven't had a pony thread in over a month. That has to be a new record for the Escapist.

Oh, come on now. If you're going to post that, you have to post . . .

God damn it.

Got my hopes up too.

Jesus christ I thought 4chan being THAT bad was just a joke! I really didn't know that they were that freaking weird! God, I can't believe a fandom like bronies could have possibly started on that website. None of those videos seemed to show the love and tolerance that they stand by at all!

theres an analysis of the brony subculture http://broniepologist.deviantart.com/gallery/#/d4o2rod

What is this "Pizza Hut Bronies". A quick search on youtube only yields that crappy fast food song from years ago, and a pony version of it. Damn there are pony versions of everything, like ever.

KefkaCultist:
LRR has assimilated into the herd? My life is now complete!

Also, Pony type MTG card:

He could have used changelings too.

Sometimes I wonder where all the funny went, then I remember, LRR has it! :)

Again!? Lol ^^

I think it was taken down a while back because it was so hated. BAsically it is a 20 mins or so video of about 20 'bronies' and I use the term loosley, going to pizza hut. They get there make the staff draw ponies on the box, loudly sing winter wrap up to piss of the guests and generally act like twats playing with pony toys and stuff.

I couldnt sit through the whole thing, it was that brain hurting.

There is a reupload of it, just watched it. Damn they all look like massive douches/twats/pricks who were giving bronies a bad, bad name. There basically trolls, people the actual brony community hates.

Yeah they are basicaly every negative stereotype of a brony put into one. And thats terrible.

It's like they couldn't think of a good script and decided to lurk through the origins of bronies on 4Chan. Lame as hell.

I think I might have to go get a picture. Wait a sec!

Those people basically fall into the retard category. Sorry the image is so crude, just is the best way to describe these "Bronies".

CrazyGirl17:
...I like My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic... though admittedly, not to the degree that other people do. Seriously, the crazy fans ruin everything for everyone else...

Don't crazy fans ruin everything for everyone else no matter what the object in question?

summerof2010:

MattAn24:
And it's because of its fans being... Insane.

Ok seriously? I am getting sick and fucking tired of people calling us bronies insane just because we like a kid's show. It's a blatant lie spat out by people like you to protect your fragile little sense of masculinity and mat-

...I'll just go stand in the corner and be quiet now.

that be the crazy ones, don't worry every fanbase as them, like say for example the people who love star wars they have the crazy haters who can get their haterd, which has been around for over a decade.

most fans are however sane people, just the crazies get shown more often to inspire haterd for it.

tehweave:
1. Dammit to hell they've gotten LRR.
2. What was with all the ECU's in this episode? We got tons of "just this person's head" in every other shot.
3. I feel like I'm part of a weird minority here. I've watched a couple of episodes and have little interest in seeing the rest. Yes, I actually watched two full episodes. Yes, it was adorable. No, I don't really care.

Also, the scared look Graham has when he says "let's watch MLP" was hilarious.

well the minority ye may be in, at least on this thread, as for the rest of the escapist um shrug.

btw thanks for giving the show a shot.

JagerShots:

hahahahahahahaha, your avatar does not support case lol.

Wow. Two days in and it's already got more comments than most of the most popular ones in previous months... I'd say this was a success at attracting moar fans. Nicely done, LRR.

Yeah, getting caught watching MLP is worse than getting caught watching porn.

I have to admit that I, too, began watching FiM "for science!". I was a fool to believe I would emerge the same as I was.

a new commodore hustle AND pony related?

i bow to you.

**Vomits everywhere** That video literally made me phyically ill. Its just... i can't... why would you.. OH GOD ITS IN THE BOX! OH GOD, THEY'VE DONE THIS BEFORE!!! AAAAAAAAAAARRRRRRGGGGGGGGGG-

PunkRex:

Hitchmeister:
I can't help but feel there's significance to the fact that a major portion of the Pony episode was focused on vomit.

Disclaimer: I've never watched MLP. I'm not saying it's bad. I've just never watched.

But I would watch Kathleen's bear show.

You'd watch bears maul naked girls... was wrong wit chu?

True, at that point I'd be wondering why bears were mauling naked GIRLS. The gender would seem to be wrong in that situation.

As for MLP, Faust is better when she takes a secondary role in the series. PPG was orders of magnitude better. Really, it's like George Lucas without his wife to tell him when he's being batshit crazy or Joss Whedon without someone more conservative(for certain values of conservative, none of which having to do with religion, and in fact having more to do with classical liberal schools of thought), generally Tim Minear, to center him.

So yeah... LRR, if I didn't like you before (and I did, very much so in fact), I don't like you any less now.

Your stuff always makes me smile, or laugh.

<.<

>.>

Also... yay!

Off topic....

I like watching these because they make me feel normal.

The "Pony Thread Simulator" videos are fake, just so you guys know. Everyone who did those posts knew that they were getting screen capped.

I sure hope so. Otherwise, I don't know.

Six pages, minimal hate.

I'm proud of you lot.

Poor Jeremy, Ulysses is a painful experience to read.

At least now he has the wonderful joy of my little pony to comfort him on those long long stream of conciousness nights...

Yeah the video was very meta. Graham said something about "ponies striking a chord with their fanbase" and that they would have to do something. And what they did was make a cH video about them taking an interest in the thing their fans like. Like I said ... very meta.

Now here is the real question: Is the fact that the pony lines sound so scripted a subtle message that they are just going through the motions (as verified by Matt in this thread), or is it just because there isn't genuine interest there?

I like this video.

Great, you invited the fans to post image macros.
