MSN.com’s Obsessed: Harry Potter vs Twilight featuring yours truly!

Dear LTT-ers, and Twilight fans alike,

Last month I was asked to be interviewed as a Twilight “Expert” (ha!) in a web series called Obsessed by comedian Kevin Avery. The series was going to compare the Twilight and Harry Potter fandoms.  I’m sure you can guess that I thought it was going to be a Colbert Report type thing where Twilighters were made fun of they went for the easy jokes instead of really getting to know a bit more about the Twilight fandom. BUUUTTT that was not the case at all, Kevin was awesome and totally got the fun, the crazy and the deep stuff about Twilight. I had a blast letting him in on the inner workings of the Twidom and sharing a little bit of why we love Twilight so much even when it doesn’t make sense! The video also features our good pal AshleyFrag rocking it for all the fans out there against some crazy Harry Potter competition and the gals from the Twilight book club in LA! We both had a ton of fun I don’t know how they edited it all down to only 3 minutes! Let’s start a petition for an outtakes reel!

Enjoy!

Now embedded! They heard our cries! Or  watch HERE

Big thanks to Kevin Avery and Keri and also Will from NMM, EM, BDM. We love you!

    That’s it? They didn’t even let you explain. Also HP fans were given a chance to bash Twilight but not the other way around. I love both, btw.

    And.. um… do all you guys here have that much Twilight stuff in your rooms? ‘Cause if that’s the #normal standard, I’m a really really bad fan.
    I have books (sans BD) and movies. And a fingerprint protected folder on my laptop. That’s it.

    Love your hair, Moon!

    • nocoolname

      The only Twilight stuff I have besides the books and one of the movies (I know, only one…) are a few gag gifts given to me by my family. And I’m not even sure where those things ended up…

    • Moon

      we talked for like a hour, there was tons of stuff we covered: robsten vs nonsten, twimoms, krisbians, the fandom gives back, how giving and awesome twi fans are. but just not enough time! :( too much goodness from everyone to fit into 3 minutes!

      • Nelle

        You looked beautiful Moon. You should have had the whole 3 minutes! Those other folks were not normal!

      I have posters and posters and postes in my room, I always carry around with me my <3 TWILIGHT <3 keychain. I own <3TWILIGHT and <3 NEW MOON on DVD bt sadly not <3 ECLIPSE but I do own them but not on DVD. I have all three soundtracks and only listen to them, nothing else. I own <3 TWILIGHT, <3 NEW MOON and <3 ECLIPSE in two copies, one with the actors and the other is the original copy. I own The Short Second Life Of Bree Tanner in one copy. I don't have <3 BREAKING DAWN because it's still in hardcover, and it hasn't came out with the actors on it. I own so so so so so so much more stuff, I was just thinking of stuff that came to my head which is really little but today is SNOW DAY so why should I work?

    That bit needed more Moon!! Funny, though. Thanks for representing the normal ones!

    • Stacey

      I agree more Moon! Also,I must say that she and Ashley made the fandom seem very normal and dignified. I was very proud of them. You didn’t see them bashing any wizards. Nice job, girls!

  • P.S.

    At first glance I thought they were interviewing Nikki Reed (sorry Moon!) Reed / Pierce – tricked my eyes. Anyway, you were great!

    • Moon

      if thats a compliment i’ll take it

  • Stacey

    I loved that Ashley was dressed like Alice! How fun!

  • Ashley

    Haha…I actually had to put a *few* more autographed photos up on the wall to fill in some space…*some* of that was already there. “That’s normal” right?

    • gizmo

      In comparison to the HP fan and her room, I’d say that’s EXTREMELY normal.

    • Anonymous

      The Alice wig was the winner! Twilight has the best bad wigs, hands-down. No comparison!

  • Anonymous

    Nice video, but I agree it could have even been longer w/ more Moon. Overall, though, I’m happy to see the Twilight and HP fans were represented well and with dignity. (That’s 1 point for the Normal fans, 0 for the crazies!)

    Of course, they left out the fact that tons of HP fans like Twilight and vice-versa, it’s not a mutually exclusive thing! If we start taking score, all things considered I’m probably a bigger HP fan.

    • Moon

      i explained that!! i said it goes both ways (twss!) there are tons ot twi fans who loves HP and some hp who love twi too.

        Ugh, MAJOR fail. This is what happens when I watch things and then respond to them before drinking my 1st cup of coffee. *hangs head in shame*

        Good work Moon :)

        • nocoolname

          I think Moon was saying that she explained that in the interview but it was edited out. I didn’t see it either.

          • Anonymous

            Clearly I need more coffee…

            Ok, we want a director’s cut of this video, then!

  • JustGoWithIt

    MSN Bubble is not working for me. It must be jammed by HP and Twi fans trying to view. I think my Twilight obsession is funny when I think of other books I’ve read, and movies I’ve seen, and how not obsessed I am with them. I am not a person that re-reads, or re-watches. Generally if I’ve seen it or read it I’m done with it. The only exception I can think of right now is being a pre-teen and being obsessed with the movie Sixteen Candles. So thinking about that, it would be pretty funny if I had been in my 30s at the time that movie came out, and was obsessed with it, and read a blog about it daily, and was like in love with Anthony Michael Hall, or Molly Ringwald.

      I do like the idea of Letters to Jake/Letters to Samantha. Or, in a similar 80’s theme, Letters to Lloyd Dobler (Say Anything). If there was a Letters to Lloyd back in the 80’s, you can bet I’d be doing that instead of ironing my Esprit outfits.

      • nocoolname

        YES! YES! Letters to Lloyd Dobler!!!!!
        Big sigh. Loved him.

        “I can’t figure it all out tonight Sir..”

    • nocoolname

      Ohhh, Sixteen Candles, Pretty in Pink, Some Kind of Wonderful, Breakfast Club, Ferris Bueller – that John Hughes knew what he was doing.

    • Sisterpenguin

      I am so with you there. I’ve read my favourite book only four or five times since I was 12 (there’s a lot of water gone under that bridge) but I’ve read the Twilight SERIES over FIVE times in under 12 months. But it feels normal…

    More Moon! More Moon!

    A post on a Tuesday?! I feel so off kilter. ;)

    Ugh. My phone and Disqus may have started making nice for me, but Adobe and my phone are still on not speaking terms. I’ll have to wait to see the vid. (I am keeping a list of demands for my next phone; must play nice with disqus, must pay nice with adobe…) I can’t wait to see the vid!

    Love the video – wonderful job dear!

    Good job representing us Moon and Ashley.

  • Anonymous

    Way to represent! I wish there was more of you Moon, but Ashley was awesome! Totally laid back and chill. Way to go!

  • Goldberrybecca

    Any time Moon is representing the Twi fandom it’s a win for us all! Nicely done.

  • Anonymous

    I have famous friends everywhere I do. Moon, you and Ash looked fab.

  • Anonymous

    Don’t you get to cross that off your list of new year resolutions- have Moon be a “superfan”? Too lazy to actually check, but wasn’t that on there? In that case, one less point for the people who want you to fail!

  • sweetinator88

    haha i <3 Harry Potter too!
    i guess i just like all things with giant fandoms?

    I can’t believe you didn’t show him the RPattz autograph you had tattooed on your butt.

    • Anonymous

      They had to edit out the Moon.

      Apologies. That was so lame. But I couldn’t help myself.

      • JodieO

        Now we know how she got the pseudonym.

  • Anonymous

    Ashley looked so cute with the Alice hair! Wish we had more of you though Moon :-( I thought the HP fan was a little scary to be honest! And I would have totally been on the Letters to Lloyd blog if they existed back then (or any other John Cusack character actually. I love him.)

  • http://twitter.com/Twilight_Site Twilight News Site

    You guys were great. Video needed to be longer(!).

    And apparently, Twilight fans are much prettier
    (especially vs. t-shirt guy)
    (and big wizard high-5 guy)
    (and graduation robes are not particularly flattering)
    (which Bella already pointed out herself, so extra win for Twilight).

    Off Topic but: @Veralu your comments right at the end of the last post were awsomeness. Please write a letter, pleeease.

    Twilight is so much better then Harry Potter because…..
    1. Twilight is a better storyline

    Oh man, they cut me and Kevin’s “How old are you?” scene – it was…um…well it was amazing for me. And we got to keep the sides.
