Want to have the first comment?There's a pony for that, too.
"Actual shows are longer."good lord, I lol'd.
Awesome! Seriously, I lol'd.
Awesome. Lol'd at the NMM "IT WON'T EXIT!" part XD
I love everything so much right now.
Do my eyes deceive me, or does one of the apps at 0:19 say "Equestria Daily"? If only it were higher res...
I love The Hub.
That... was AWESOME!!
Oh god, Rarity's Secret.
http://dl.dropbox.com/u/3794151/ponies/eqd%20app.pngOh my Gosh, there is TOTALLY an Equestria Daily app!
my day is made....that is all
If the Hub wasn't winning before, they are now.
@Captain BritishOH MY GOD DID THE HUB REFERENCE THIS BLOGOH MY GOD
@CalnosI was about to point that out! Awesome shout-out!But yeah, higher res would be great. There's a lot of cool details. They obviously worked really hard on this.
Holy shit, we're on TV.Holy. Shit.
@Captain British@CalnosHoly crap!! You're right!
0:11 - Spike: Woo hoo! Love yer cupcakes
That was awesome... It's spelled "iPhone" not "Iphone"
@CalnosIt does say "Equestria Daily". You can see it clearly at O:18, just before the hoof covers it up.I'm not really surprised. Hub/Hasbro has taken note of us and has already given us a bunch of praise. so it's not surprising they'd put something subtle like that in this vid.
EPIC lol that was hilarious
I think we can add this to the list of reasons why The Hub are awesome.
another excellent video by the hub, lol at angry mare.(2reason2)
I want the high def version! I can read most of those apps, like Equestria Daily and Yahoof! But the first two pages are too pixilated.
Someone needs to upload a higher quality version of this to youtube so that we can analyze every little detail better.Also, The Hub wins.
THEY PUT US IN AN APP! The Hub comfirmed for continually more awesome.
I totally lol'd. The Hub is so cool. Also, I want Angry Mare on my phone.
*chuckles* They're getting better. This IS awesome. ^^
That's actually amazing. hehe
Page 1 is almost completely impossible because the shot is almost instantly blocked by Twilight's hoof.However I can see a Wordpress icon, a Pon-3 icon, a Google icon, and a Twilight icon.Page 2:YahoofGroupony4HoofMLPPonyBookEquWeatheriGallopPinkie SweetsFeeditHappy FlowerEquestrian Cantar (?)Page 3:PviteeNayPNNFlutter SHutterAngry MareHoofTubePonywhotoss (?)CMr RainbowEquestria DailyPetMinderCan't ReadCan't Read
Oh wow, I knew they were announcing the iPhone 5 soon...
The commercial on the whole is great, but the fact that they actually referenced Equestria Daily is FRIGGIN'AMAZING
They misspelled "Pinkie" as "Pinky" in "Pinky's Party."Not that it matters, since the ad is fantastic, but yeah.
Oh, Hub, if only there were a pony for bridging the time to season 2.
@Alan SolivanI think Hub and Seth are BFFs ever since they gave him the exclusive on the Equestria Girls video!
So is Equestria Daily canon now?
Now if only Hasbro would log in here and realize that NO ONE LIKES PINK CELESTIA. I wonder how much money I can make repainting Celestia figures. Bet it would look 120% cooler with pearl metal flecked white automobile paint. MUST TRY!
Wow, way to go, Hub! This really is one of the best fanbases and community ^^
(Rainbow Dash Voice): So Awsome! /)^ɛ^(\
Holy hay that was awesome!! XD
@Anonymous...I hope it's on a newspaper in season 2...
0:08 has "DJ Pon3 in da house" at the top
The Hub is epic.
Is this going on TV as a commercial?
This is just way too awesome to describe. The bit at the end saying "Actual shows are longer" kind of ruins it a bit, but it is still a really awesome ad. See executives, a little creativity can go a long way with fans.
Also, in the list of parties, there was "DJ Pon3 in da house".
Anyone have a direct link to the video? The mobile site doesn't show it :(
Gehhh, they spelled Pinkie with a Y. How dare theyyyyy!Neh, kidding. Peace and tolerance!
I laughed when I saw "4hoof."
Theyre trying to hint that you need an app for this website.
As someone with an iPhone, I approve of this.
PonyBook! maaaaaaaan I want to add Twilight to mah Friendlist!! XD hahaha I lol'ed so hard when I saw that :P Now that I own an iPhone... I want ALL THOSE APPS IN MAH PHONE RAIT NAO!!! ¬¬ xDWay to go The HUB! =)
@Luna EponaLauren Faust has already explained this.If the major toy chains tell Hasbro they won't purchase as many WHITE toys as they would PINK toys, then that's that. Since the toy chains are where Hasbro's money is, they have incentive to produce what's most profitable. It's sad, but hopefully Hasbro will be able to negotiate something better soon.
So about that app...
So I herd on PNN that Cutie Marks are all the rage this season.
Words cannot capture how right The Hub is doing this. I look forward to going through the HQ version with a fine-tooth comb.
It's feasible they'll release a white Celestia, maybe in a pony pack or something. Pink and obnoxious things attract little girls' attention. The talking Celestia was pretty painful, but it'd sell more to their target audience than a show accurate one.Some quotes from Pinklestia: "I'm a princess--are you a princess, too?" "You're so beautiful!" "I love making friends." "I will light the way to the castle!"
Okay. That was hilarious.Hasbro knows how to treat their fanbase AND promote their stuff. Keep up the good work!
Oh man, that was so unbelievably awesome. Really well-put-together and funny, a shout-out to Equestria Daily...I'd really love to see an HD copy on Youtube.
@FirleycatThe "sequences shortened" thing is playing off of text on the regular iPhone commercials.This is insanely awesome!
LOL. We've officially done it. We've hit just about all avenues of society. Ponies are officially the in-thing of this generation. If you're not into MLP, then you just blow. Go back to being an e-peen on WoW or CoD. XD
This is a thing of beauty. They really seem to have made an effort with it too. I really like all the little touches we only see for split-seconds.
Hooves do not work that way!Srssly tho, brilliant ad.
Oh Celestia I love the Hub. It'd be hilarious if in Season 2 there's a newspaper in the background with "Equestria Daily" as the name.
Do you want to have a reason to smile as soon as you get out of bed? There's a pony for that.Seriously though... is it REALLY because of the brony following that all these parodies and tributes can hit official airwaves? If so, how far can this be taken? I think half the fun is finding out... >:3
On a meta-side note, am I the only one amused that the commercial is followed by a Doctor Who video?
I can't believe it...this is a thing of beauty. HUB/Hasbro must be getting bored waiting for Season2 too. :PYOU ROCK HUB!
@CalnosNo, you are not the only one.
okay, @ :02 of the video: 4hoof. upper right hand corner.full of win. also, is that derpy on the email icon? I can't get a good enough look to confirm.
someone had better get an HD version of this when it airsI want to see what some of those unreadable buttons are
Page 2:"4hoof"?Any one else thinkin what I am thinking?
Pinkcess Celestia should be a villain in Season 2, sort of like a risen or created doppleganger that challenges or replaces Princess Celestia. She will be vain with phrases that priase her own wings, but underneath her Pink exterior will be evil, and only the real Celestia can battle and destroy her.
Made my day!
Equestria Daily showing up on the app list is amazing.If I were Seth, I'd be absolutely useless for the next week, I'd be fangasming so hard.
And that, fillies and gentlecolts, is how you advertise a television show.It's amazing what's possible when writers, animators, and marketers all work together to create something anyone can watch.
@:: Scarcity ::Can't I be into both? D:
Having your day become full of happiness and awesome, before lunch?There's a pony for that!Also, grats to the blog ponies for getting a shout out like that. Celestia knows you guys deserve it and then some!
Ahh that is great xDLet's continue to ponify the whole world !
That was a MUCH-needed laugh. I loved that video.Then I read the accompanying article. Gee, thanks all to pieces for the snarky attitude there, writer. Watched the video again to recover. ^_^On an unrelated note, I despise typos. Especially my own.
@Captain GamerHow could it not be? I haven't seen advertisements of this nature for any other shows ostensibly marketed to young girls.
Now i wish i have an iPony!
"So, say you're watching My Little Pony Friendship is Magic. Mmm did somebody say cupcakes? And the closest would be? Ah."
I'm just waiting on a newspaper in season 2 to be titled "Equestria Daily".It'll happen, I just know it.
Need a boost for your day? There's a pony for that.I really needed that, I wonder how The Hub will top this...
After browsing through the comments, looks like Mindy beat me to the newspaper being named Equestria Daily in season 2 thing.
Confound these ponies, etc.
If only there were such an app...
I can't wait for the HD version so I can read what the program that has Vinyl Scratch as an icon is.
HOLY SHITTHE HUB RULES
Luna just ousted Celestia as ruler of Equestria! - FourHoof
@ The Dread Pirate Roberts:What did you think was so snarky about the article? The reference to our "geeky little hands?" I don't think it comes across as especially malevolent.
Oh you're going to make this one difficult to download eh Wired…[challenge_accepted.png]
This is awesome.
"...PONIES PONIES PONIES PONIES (SWAG)omigish omigosh omigosh omigosh (SWAG)..."
Did.. did they just reference 4chan AND Equestria Daily AND a buncha memes all in the span of a few seconds? Wow.Whomever is doing the marketing over at the Hub deserves a raise, a promotion, and a helluva big hug. Fan recognition is so damn rare these days from major studios and corporations, so to see something like this is just.. jaw-droppingly amazing.
Hasbro should have an online store, that sells toys that you can only get at the online store IE. a White Celestia toy w/o a talking feature, plushes, and bigger plastic toys w/o the girly hair, just like some pony action figures!!!!! Also they should sell merchandise such as shoes for adults, and what not. Hasbro really has a nice fanbase for this show, and they can benefit from it much more if they take advantage of it!
LMAO 0:12Rarity's SecretDerriere!
Not as cool as Equestria Girls but still cool
Best company ever?Yes.
Officially the best fandom I've ever been in.
Hmmm... what is a nine character phrase describing this commercial?"F-U-C-K-(space)-Y-E-A-H."Eeyup, that fits.
Best Ad ever. The Hub wins +100 Internets.
RARITY'S SECRETHoovesManeEvening WearDerriereBridles
This is full of win.Is this actually going to be airing on the TV?
You can tell they're really trying to put in a solid effort for the second season. I appreciate that.
Oh my god. The Hub, Hasbro, take all of my money. I don't need it anymore.
@Hirolooks like kloudmutt was right?
So is the Equestria Daily icon changing to that of the EqD App? IMO, the current one is 20% cooler.
fun to watch. lol'd at spikes "I love your cupcakes" though that could be taken the wrong way...
120 comments in about an hour. Knew I should've grabbed first when I could've.
THEY KNOW ABOUT US.
Ahaha *Dash-Face* So Awesome!
The Hub: Taking "ascended meme" to new heights!
This joke is a bit stale at this point, but this ad is still appreciated
"dj-pon3 in da house!" In the restaurant app. MFW
@Anonymousand make sure to have an Android version!
Modders make all those apps become real in 3.. 2..
If Braeburn has been shown in this and Equestria Girls, I demand him in Season 2 or I will burn The Hub to the ground! Do not tease me when it comes to Braeburn!
Why wouldn't they upload this to their new Youtube channel?
Someone make a youtube version.
Nice! Good advertisement and a good shoutout! >inb4 season 2 newspapers with Equestria Daily on them
That. Was pretty great :)
I want EqD on my iPhone!!!
The camera app is called Flutter Shutter. Amazing.This definitely put some sunshine back in my day. :)
...>4Hoof......I guess "PonyChan" was taken, huh...
WHA-HA-HA!Also, I'd like to point out that the animation of Twilight's hoof clearly demonstrates a deep collaboration between the animators and PR of the show. If we could only get them to share notes with the Hasbro toy marketing team, we might have a shot at better products.Which makes me think...do they have some contractual obligation to use the Twilight-duck-face vectors on all their packaging, and can't use actual graphics from the show for some reason?
If anypony noticed, on the EqD page, it says'HayNinja'as opposed to'FruitNinja'
ponybook?silly hub, that's not how you spell "flankbook" =P
iPony??WANTHoly @$#% this was like the greatest ad ever. Whoever is the creative mind at Hasbro dreaming these up needs a medal.
For anyone capable of using RTMPdump this is the commandline that worked for me. The video is not high quality though alas.rtmpdump -r "rtmp://cp52347.edgefcs.net:1935/ondemand?videoId=1042664148001&lineUpId=958332597001&pubId=1564549380&playerId=958487412001&affiliateId=" -a "ondemand?videoId=1042664148001&lineUpId=958332597001&pubId=1564549380&playerId=958487412001&affiliateId=" -f "WIN 10,3,181,34" -W "http://admin.brightcove.com/viewer/us1.25.05.05.2011-06-28115853/federatedVideoUI/BrightcovePlayer.swf" -p "http://www.wired.com/underwire/2011/07/my-little-pony-iphone-parody/" -y "mp4:streams/1564549380/1564549380_1042705029001_Pony.mp4?videoId=1042664148001&lineUpId=958332597001&pubId=1564549380&playerId=958487412001&affiliateId=" -o 1564549380_1042705029001_Pony.flv
"Sequences shortened. Actual shows are longer."e_e
just want to comment that 4hoof is more likely a parallel of foursquare.
For anyone who's reading this far down the comments for some reason, I'm pretty sure 4hoof is a reference to 4square, not 4chan.I can't even say how awesome this is, anyways. Maybe...this awesome?
♪We're gonna win everywhere, right every single wrooooong (right every wrong!)♫This is what I'm talking about when I say how happy this show and fandom makes me. They've catered to us so much with stuff like this it's almost unbelievable. I love it.What does Twilight's Ponybook profile say? I can't fully make it out. Looks like "It's pony night! Where my fillies at? Time to make some hay!" And Spike's review of "Pinky's Party": "Woo hoo! Love yer cupcakes!" Oh my GOOOOD. And I'm laughing at the "Spike's Place" party listing because I'm picturing him being all "Yeah, party at MY place" and Twilight being all "Um, you mean MY place?" lol.We really gotta go through this with a fine tooth comb, and get a higher quality version if possible. I wanna read Dash's PNN article. :D
Oh seriously? Why can't the text not reset?we need that icon pack.and... I dont blame them for not knowing about flankbook, I've only known of it for 2 days.
Okay, the world is ours. Let the era of friendship begin.
Thank you Hub, we love you too!We need an official EqD app.
I lub dis
Looks like someone got it on YouTube already:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IYFWwOeJCo0
Equestrian News Network Sounds better than Pony News Network
@WingbeatWell, I don't know about that. There's only three hoof vectors used, and the animation is pretty basic. Seems like something any trained animator on the marketing team could do.Not to dig at the ad, of course. It really doesn't NEED anything more than basic animation. It's just a hoof pressing buttons and sliding things. :P
Should I love the HUB now? HELL YEAS! They love us!
I would probably piss myself if they ended up announcing Equestria Daily in season 2.I BET YOU THEY WOULD DO IT IN THE FORM OF A NEWSPAPER!!Everyone look out during season 2, we have a newspaper to find...
"Nightmare Moon"EXITEXITEXITEXITEXITFantastic. Season 2 is going to make the Internet explode. With joy.
...MLP FIM has the best ads ever
The Hub just referenced 4chan and EqD in an official ad they are airing.>mfw>http://i.imgur.com/QeaMX.png
Looking at the app icon for EqD..Ponies + Bacon = Equestria Daily?
@ZMorrisoh yeah? well it's going to make me explode TWICE!
I LOVE this advertisement. The idea is golden, and they do it perfectly.
I couldn't help but giggle at the Nightmare Moon game app xD
WHY WUB WOO, HUB.
@Gozer the EquestrianWell mine'll be louder! /is a totally mature adult...Also, new banner. LOVE.
@ZMorris>With joyI am SO glad you said "joy" there...
Now this makes me wonder if there is they're going to slip in a newspaper called Equestria Daily in season 2
Rarity's Secret, yeah! So much awesome in one little commercial.
That is just awesome. I hope they make more stuff like this. Keep them coming, hasbro!
New banner, by the way.I couldn't help myself.
>pony book>take a note>spikes silhouettei fucking loled
Wow, this is great. Whoever is in charge of marketing MLP has really caught on fast. He/she/they are a genius! This is obviously geared entirely at the internet fanbase and not at all for the target demographic.This is awesome! CANT WAIT FOR SEASON 2
Marvelous, just marvelous, I love the Hub.
@Cereal VelocityNot the stock vectors! They're gonna think we like those things! D:Seriously awesome commercial, though! I love the Hub so much right now. /)^ε^(\ I haven't a single doubt in my mind that season two is going to be amazing.
OK, Rarity's dress on her app @ :13, i don't remember her wearing that in season 1... S2 Clip?
No, anon, it's from Green Isn't Your Color. Right before Fluttershy comes in to the spa and screams.
Very nice! They're really getting tthe hang of it.
Equestria Daily appThis is win
Because if you don't love My Little Pony, well... you don't Love My Little Pony =P
@AnonymousCelestia's gilded crown your right! Quick someone start writing up conspiracies about season 2 based solely off that dress.
Lol`d at the "Neigh U" app
I saw this posted somewhere else too a few ago. Pretty cool. It seems The Hub is really having fun with creating MLPFiM parody stuff. Which is great. I hadn't even noticed that "Equestria Daily" app they stuck in there. Now that is pretty nifty. :D Someone also pointed out the "PonyBook" in there. They must've missed the "FlankBook" site unfortunately. :PI also found the "Angry Mare" part pretty funny. "Exit exit exit exit!"
This is great! Good going on the Hub's part!
Now consider the flip side here: being an ad on the Hub, a channel (with so many other shows) whose demographic remains kid-targeted. Trying to put myself back into my own little Keds and imagining seeing this? I think I'd be thinking: "Wow, the Hub is so cool!"So I think it works wonderfully because of its universal appeal. Kids like feeling hip and "in" too, after all. :) And these days, a lot of kids would catch on to many of the memes flashing by in the ad, I bet!
@Scribejay That dress was Green isn't your color
@Cereal VelocityWhy the stock vectors? Why?!
@:: Scarcity ::[Go back to being an e-peen on WoW or CoD. XD ]Hey! I play WoW and i find that insulting. I was discussing about Equestria Daily on WoW, in a server-wide custom channel, like, two days ago. :(
@ChaosluxAu contraire! Those of us who are WoW-playing bronies have an extraordinary calling: spread Love and Tolerance to the troll-infested, epeen(GS)-worshipping, BG-PUG-flaming cesspit that WoW... can sometimes be. (Of course it's still a great social game most times, at least on my server. :)I think it's especially challenging in the competitive venue of PvP with PUGs because it has become so Anon-macho. :L The spirit of friendship, friendly competition, and good sportsmanship would improve that aspect of the game vastly, IMO (in my oponyon).
On the last page: Derp-Zam! It would always guess the music title wrong, but be adorable in the process so you'd love it anyways :)
OOOHHHH MAAAHH GAAAAWWWWWDTHAT IS AAAAWWEEEESSSSSOOOMMMMEE
There is an updated version at this url (Pinkie Pie misspelling has been corrected): http://knowyourmeme.com/videos/10571-my-little-pony-friendship-is-magic#.TheO2OCxFPF
Needs moar Fluttershy....Besides that...fantastic. World domination nearly coooommplleeeteee
the fact that this exists, along with everything it entails, is just so awesome! :D
I need to download this, and I cant!!!!
i could totally use an Equestria Daily app
I want to post a reply here just to know I'm a part of this post. I mean... wow. I thought Equestria Girls was the most I could possibly expect until Season 2, but this just... I mean, and pretty soon afterward, at that.... I LOVE these guys. It's almost as if they actually understand and want to promote their weird, awesome fanbase or something. I just... I just... <3
