Jane Austen & Kylie Minogue
Perhaps somebody can enlighten me: when did the trend of making music videos for TV shows and movies and posting them on YouTube start?
This practice came to my attention after I started watching ITV's Jane Austen Season on YouTube. I first heard about the new adaptations of Persuasion, Mansfield Park, and Northanger Abbey here, and immediately set about watching them. I watched "Persuasion" first, and it was awesome. I basically wanted to watch it over again as soon as I finished.
Then I noticed that the same gal who uploaded all the videos onto YouTube had created a few music videos to go along with them. She took scenes from the movie and added an appropriate pop song to go with it.
And she's not the only one. If you do a little searching, these things are all over the place. There's even one that combines all three movies and puts it to "Can't Get You Out of My Head."
They're kind of fun to watch, especially when you've already watched all three movies and are just trying to kill time until they come out with Sense & Sensibility in a few months.
