    The Brony Hunters Extraordinaire Expo Vids

    I love these guys! Nothing like a bit of good hearted fun, right?

    Greetings, Equestria Daily! You might remember us from a previous posting, but we are the Brony Hunters Extraordinaire! We have ventured far and wide to combat the spread of the herd attending many expos in Britain, and so far... Well... It's not going incredibly well. Everywhere we turn, friendship, magic, love and tolerance are there. We have found ourselves surrounded by Bronies and Pegasisters, and yet, we persevere. We just wanted to send out a warning to you all... We're coming for you!

    On a slightly less "in-character" note, hi! We're the Brony Hunters, and we actually just want to have a bit of fun. We're just 2 guys and a butler who had an idea. We saw the sheer prevalence of the pony fandom, and thought to ourselves, "We could have some fun with these people at expos and cons". Be sure to check out our 'Meet the Brony Hunters' video below to get a better understanding about who we are...

    When we first started, we were a little worried it wouldn't go well. However, as you can probably see from the videos, especially the MCM Massacre, we've been welcomed with open arms, and people seem to really enjoy what we're doing. So, these videos are up here for two reasons. One, so you can hopefully enjoy watching them as much as we enjoyed making them, and two, as a thank you to the community, for letting a few weird guys have this much fun.

    You can find us on facebook with photos of our trips and information about which events will be attending; https://www.facebook.com/BronyHuntersExtraordinaire


    Title says it all really.

    North Dakota Brony Survey

    My name is Samuel Miller from the University of North Dakota's Communication Department. I am conducting a Brony survey for my research about fandoms. The research focuses on masculinity and irony and what the Brony fandom could mean for both. The purpose of this survey is to gather information about three things: demographic information, fan activity, and whether they agree or disagree with selected media representations made about them. The survey takes about 20 minutes to complete. There is an incentive to participate. All participants are eligible to enter into a drawing for a free plushie from Xsjado78 on Deviantart. His page is here: http://xsjado78.deviantart.com/ Thank you for your participation. Your contribution is invaluable to my research. Here is the link to the survey: https://und.qualtrics.com/SE/?SID=SV_3NIc74JLpTqyfGZ
