There are literally hundreds of Brokeback Mountain trailer parodies online but we think this Harry/Ron slash remix, by 19 year old vidder MissSheenie, is one of the best. The fusion seamlessly re-casts the stars of the Harry Potter films as characters from Brokeback Mountain.
This process of slash fusion, particularly using the Brokeback Mountain trailer as a foundation, allows artists to queer virtually any on screen relationship and is especially important for LGBTQ fans who have so few options of characters to identify with in mass media.
MissSheenie‘s trailer is one of our favorites because it offers us a convincing queer-positive re-interpretation of the heteronormative Harry Potter universe using careful editing and audio manipulation as visual evidence.
Although we would not normally classify remixed trailers as “vids” MissSheenie is an avid vidder so we think its appropriate. She also makes Kirk/Spock slash which you can see on her other YouTube Channel at spirksmistress.
