#AusteninAugustRBR 2015: Austen Fandom Videos

As I’m on vacation this week, here is a roundup of my favorite Austen-related videos.

Regency version of  Nelly’s “Hot in Herre” from Austenland (2013). This played over the end credits to the movie adaptation of Shannon Hale’s book. (Read my review of the book!)

“Jane Austen’s Fight Club.” I understand this and think it’s funny even though I’ve never read or watched Fight Club.

“Mr Bingley’s Post (Pride and Prejudice parody).” The jokes remind me of Monty Python or Fry and Laurie sketches, which should be expected from a comedy group called Pineapple-Shaped Lamps.

“The Real Housewives of Jane Austen.” A reality TV version of Austen’s heroines. “It is a truth universally acknowledged that I’m drunk” is the best joke in this one, I think.

Bonus: Pride and Prejudice and Zombies panel from Comic Con 2015 with the cast and Seth Graeme-Smith, author of the book. I’m excited to see Matt Smith (from Doctor Who) as Mr. Collins, zombie or not! It comes out February 5, 2016.
