Ahhh, I adore mashups.

They’re pulling from a bunch of material, so the editing’s usually better. (When you don’t have a lot to work with, it can be hard to find enough scenes to make things flow. Broadening your scope increases your chance of finding an appropriate clip, which helps with pacing–an action clip is normally ill-suited for a slow song, and vice versa.) And this is MEP (multiple editor project), so–those are usually good too, because everyone’s trying to make things as seamless as possible so that the video will actually come together as a whole.

Normally, I don’t like action-oriented vids too much, because I feel people ignore the message of the song in favor of “OH HEY THEY’RE DOING COOL THINGS THIS WORKS RIGHT”

….I don’t know how to punctuate that last sentence. *stares*

This one, though. This one shows them doing superhero stuff, and the song’s about being a superhero, so hey, it works this time! HOWEVER. I’ve seen a similar Young Justice vid before, and I didn’t like it. It didn’t really fit, I thought. That’s why the editing in this one is so great. It’s not perfect, especially at the beginning, but it’s pretty darn close.
