(500) Days of Sid and Nancy

Our friends over at GeekTyrant posted this pretty amusing video yesterday, which was directed by Marc Webb as both a promotion for his new film (500) Days of Summer, as well as the first video in a new series by MSN called Cinemash, which takes actors and has them portray scenes from famous movies.

This first video takes the stars of (500) Days of Summer, Zooey Deschanel and Joesph Gordon-Levitt, and puts them in the roles of Sid Vicious and Nancy Spungen, as seen in the 1986 film Sid and Nancy, which originally starred Gary Oldman and Chloe Webb. Presumably on purpose, (500) Days of Summer makes a reference to Sid and Nancy, the clip of which can also be found at GeekTyrant.

I initially had no intention of seeing (500) Days of Summer, even though I do like Zooey Deschanel as both an actress and a musician, but this clip has me rethinking my stand on the film. Obviously the Sid and Nancy clip won't be in it, but regardless, the chemistry between the two actors seems interesting enough.

Its like you read my mind! You seem to know so much about this, like you wrote the book in it or something. I think that you could do with some pics to drive the message home a bit, but other than that, this is great blog. A great read. Agen Bola
