Fondly Fake

A friend of mine recently sent me a link to a trailer for Green Lantern. The trailer starred Nathan Fillion. Now, I knew that Ryan Reynolds is in fact cast as Hal Jordan, but I watched anyway. It was an enjoyable fake, comprised of doctored scenes from Star Trek and several television episodes starring Fillion.

This got me wondering what other fake trailers might be out there. It also had me considering why someone would spend such time putting one together.

Ultimately, these fakes are a fond expression of a fan’s desire, either attempting to spark interest in a property, or to produce something relating to the property to feel part of the creative or marketing experience.

They’re harmless. They’re fun. Below are several such trailers. All fake. All created with love. Some will have you asking yourself, “What if?”
