Video of the Week: Slash Revolution

Slash Revolution

For those of you who are “Nerd Curious” – slash is a genre of fan fiction that focuses on the depiction of romantic (and often sexual) relationships between two or more male characters. Some of the more popular “couples” include Kirk & Spock, Starsky & Hutch, and Bodie & Doyle (from The Professionals).

This Russian vidder has assembled an array of clips from 26 different films and television programs. There’s nothing explicit, it’s all implied when you understand the context in which the clips are presented. And it’s very funny.

The terrific dance song used is “Sexual Revolution” by Army of Lovers

I can’t name them all (I’m missing six), but some of the fandoms represented are: M*A*S*H*, Master and Commander, Alien Nation: The Series, Quantum Leap, Enterprise, Highlander: The Series, Some Like it Hot, Singing in the Rain, Jeeves and Wooster, House M.D., The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson, The Lord of the Rings, Poirot, Harry Potter, Moulin Rouge, The Pirates of the Caribbean, Star Trek, Star Wars: The Phantom Menace, Meet the Spartans, and The Darjeeling Limited.
