Okay. We’ve had Australia’s The Vines, Nottingham’s Swound and an extraordinary Ludacris mash up from San Francisco’s Mike Relm.
But now, all the way from Florida, here is another music video that not only riffs on ‘Scott Pilgrim’ but pretty much recreates beat for beat the sonic battle between The Katayanagi Twins and Sex Bob-Omb.
Not only that, the makers ripped the ‘Amp Versus Amp’ flyer straight from the movie and tinkered with the TIBB acronym so it now reads ‘Tallahassee International Battle Of The Bands’.
The poster still needs more exclamation marks though.
Either way, am amused and flattered by this Pilgrim riff, even if it lacks snow dragons and a sonic yeti.

Ironically, unlike The Vines and Swound, I was already aware that this video might happen as my VFX supervisor was approached to do the effects. As you can see below…

Had an email from the Florida film house asking for “effects like scott pilgrim” for a music video:
Chris Brown vs T-Pain amp to amp like the Katanyagi fight!.
I’ll show you the treatment at some point, basically a bunch of screen grabs from the katanyagi fight!
Obviously, Frazer did not do the finished video. But sweet of them to ask.
My final thought? Who was the guy that won the battle?
