Matthijs Vlot has become the darling of the supercut world. Vlot mashed together a multitude of scenes from other movies to create two of most cheerful mashups that you’ll see on the Internet today (if you haven’t seen them already that is). In Hello, he sources dialogue from a variety of films and syncs it to Lionel Richie’s love song of the same name. And in Ooh Aah, he uses exclamations from other film and cartoon characters to add to Meg Ryan’s fake orgasm scene from “When Harry Met Sally”. See Vlot’s masterful supercuts after the jump.
Back in the day when life was much simpler, cartoons ruled my life. As much as I liked school, I longed for the time it would end each day so that I could rush home to catch the next episode of Voltron. And then there was Dangermouse, Inspector Gadget, Visionaries, Chip n’ Dale: Rescue Rangers, Saber Rider, BraveStarr, She-Ra, Thundersub, …
Artists Jane Lui and Paul Dateh bring back waves of nostalgia in their collaboration, Cartoon Medley, where they play the theme songs from classic cartoons including Inspector Gadget, Duck Takes, and the Animaniacs.

I know more about the Hadron Collider than I do about dubstep. Producer/DJ Dirt Monkey takes Darth Vader’s foreboding entrance theme tune, “The Imperial March” and adds liberal amounts of elements from the dubstep and drum n’ bass genres. Have a listen to his bootleg remix below.
The song is available for download on SoundCloud.
If you liked the Hello Kitty Crossovers from Kiwi illustrator Joseph Senior, you’re sure to love the creations from Andrew Mark Hunter. Under the alias of Yayzus Graphics, Hunter takes the iconic Japanese character Kitty White (born in posh London) and morphs her with characters from popular movies, TV series, and cartoons.
Say hello to Hunter’s cute mashups after the jump.
It’s over 1 million! YouTube views that is. Canadian musician Mike Tompkins has directed and edited a cover of Adele’s Rolling in the Deep where he not only sang the song but manufactured the sounds of the different instruments using only his mouth. Watch Tompkins and his animated facial expressions in his a capella, beatbox version below.

Marvel.com recently put up a special range of covers which shows our popular comic book heroes into a new light, Tron-style. This also highlights that Marvel has begun designs for a Marvel Tron comic, Tron: The Betrayal. It is a miniseries so I’m hoping that it’s full of quality!
Since Disney’s acquisition of Marvel I have been very weary of the future for comics, but it seems that Marvel is keeping its true spirit alive. I just hope it doesn’t go further than this.
Walt Disney Pictures’ 3D adventure, Tron: Legacy is due in theaters on December 17th. So along with this, Marvel comics has produced these variant covers to promote the new film. These characters have been re-imagined to tie in with the Tron universe, and of course, to get us even more hyped up about this highly anticipated film. The artists, Mark Brooks and Brandon Peterson, have truly nailed the crossover.
Tron: Legacy is a sequel to the original 1982 film and promises new material and a great cinematic experience. Tron: Evolution is the tie-in video game, scheduled for release late this year as well. I’m hoping that these Marvel characters can make some guest appearances in there.
So here are some of the Marvels’ Tron variant covers:

We were amazed by Pomplamoose and their great cover of Michael Jackson’s Beat It. There are links to more of their track in the comments of that post. If you liked that, then you may love Asian musician Paul Dateh and his awesome violin skills.
Dateh has taken a couple of songs from the recent iTunes Top 40 list, mashed them together, and played them back on his trusty violin. Check it out below.
The tracks covered in this mashup were:
- Lady Gaga – Telephone
- Ke$ha – Blah Blah Blah
- Rihanna – Rude Boy
- Usher – OMG

Back in 2007, Dateh played a selection of hip hop songs whilst DJ inka one spun the turntables in the background. See that after the jump.
Here’s a Monday morning quickie for you. The Glaswegian graphic designer who brought you superheroes re-imagined as Mr. Men has mashed together seven comic book heroes into one epic mask. The seven corresponding villains have a mask of their own.
Can you name all the characters in the two masks? Hit the jump to see them.
