I started watching these way back in the mid 90's. Just a novalty thing i had seen at some conventions. The first one that stuck in my head was "Father Of Mine" set to Eva. After that I wanted to see more, sadly that meant wading through way too many DBZ videos. and youtube didn't exist yet.

I used to watch them a lot and make some occasionally. Managed to win an award for one at an anime convention. It's been a couple years since I bothered.
>Did AMV Hell make them obsolete?
Not really. I still see a lot of comedy AMVs that try to imitate that style, but it's also partially because most other comedy that don't do AMV hell style end up trying to force a single joke for too long. Not that all do, but it takes a lot of work to make a comedy AMV that's not "here's a funny song with some kinda fitting scenes from anime in the background." (See, almost any AMV with audio from Avenue Q or Johnathan Coulton)

No. Don't need a constant thread for this shit.

I know what you mean about the "it's just a funny song" ones. a lot of them are reaching. I had mentioned AMV hell because it seemed to fit this formula "Brevity is the soul of wit" like a glove. the jokes, even the bad ones aren't around long enough to grate on you.

I think it can kinda apply to most genres though. Action AMVs are just some rock song with a few fight scenes stuck in, drama AMVs are some somber song with some lel drama scenes, etc. It's just most obvious with a comedy AMV when someone tries to push a bad joke for too long. At least an action AMV that's just random fight scenes with a pumping rock song can be interesting to watch assuming at least some work went into it.

Been tempted to sit down and watch Redline, Just never had the time. and the whole idea of stylized racing show just doesn't appeal.

I realized too that you can tell a lot about a show's fanbase by looking at the AMVs people make for it.

40538 Linkin Park AMV's for the same show... AVOID AT ALL COSTS
