If you thought the only toy-related fictional property you had to look forward to was Pixar’s Toy Story 4, you aren’t thinking big or bloody enough. For here is the genre-mashing American Horror Toy Story! I’d say it’s NSFW, but that’s only if you work in a plastic office set sold by Playskool.
For anyone who has ever wanted Buzz Lightyear to get his just desserts for being such a dick through the Toy Story movies, this is it. What better two properties to mash together than one of the most successful film franchises in history and one of the most popular shows on cable? None, probably. (I don’t see a Titanic/Black Sails crossover spoof happening.) The vid was put together by animator and pop culture lover Leigh Lahav and writer Oren Mendez, and it’s far from their first slice of excellence. More on that in a bit.
The video starts off with Woody and Buzz discussing the pros and cons of living with new girl Bonnie, as Buzz is having problems with her toy doll Twisty, the misunderstood murderer clown from American Horror Story: Freak Show. Woody doesn’t seem to have a problem with Twisty, and is just delighted by his “antics,” which include raising a bloody knife and having his mask drop down to reveal his ghoulish maw. Woody is kind of an idiot, don’t you think?
Still, I’d like to see the follow-up to this video which has Buzz caged up in a toy school bus and being threatened by giant rubber balls. I wonder if Lahav takes requests. I also wonder if FX recognizes the marketability of selling Twisty dolls in stores. They could make for some very interesting stocking stuffers this holiday season. Can you imagine seeing this face peeking at you on Christmas morning?
So I cheated earlier when I asked about there being a better mash-up video out there, because I already know that Lahav and Mendez did it with their “Twin Peaks Detectives” video. Check it out below, and try to “detect” all the other references sprinkled throughout.
The duo have also put together “Frozen is the New Black,” “Thor-ested Development” and “Mean Elves,” for those of you who just can’t get enough of this animated crossover-ness. Now I’d like to see “American Horror Christmas Story,” “American History X Horror Story,” and “American Neverending Horror Story.”
