As most of the world knows, Prince William is getting married in a couple of days. While I’m British enough to not care about it politically, I’m still American enough to be enamoured of the z0mgeeyay! factor of the spectacle. Having said that, I must admit that I’m terribly charmed by some of the spoofy/tribute bits out there, and wanted to share a few that I’ve probably bored my poor Twitter friends with already. *grins*
The T-Mobile Royal Wedding
One of my dear-but-distant friends linked this to me this morning. While I am not overly familiar with the video it’s spoofing or the song, I am utterly charmed by how good of matches they got for various people in the video. That definitely speaks of some dedication to getting it right, unlike the made-for-tv movie. That looks like it only made a lick and a promise of trying to actually pick folks that look like the pair… but then, the story is reported to be pretty darn fictionalized as well.
And, of course, my Sims junkie self cannot help but love this:

As said, firstly – it’s the Sims. Secondly, I appreciate the high level of snarkitude. I agree that the press will probably be keeping an eye for Harry to do something wild (maybe we should go downstairs and place a small bet on it? *laughs*). I also approve of the fact that Charles can’t dance, but the Queen has all teh groove. Plus, Generations – I cannot wait, I cannot wait, I cannot wait. Granted, I don’t know what they can do for expansions past that (Seasons, I guess), so I’m guessing that Sims 4 might be sooner rather than later. I try not to speculate on it – I have loved the Sims since their inception, but I’m not sure I’m quite ready for a new new game. Not when Sims 3 is incredibly broken without harsh modding.
Otherwise, we have our few bits of memorial tat in the house. We found a not completely horrid mug (though if someone gets me the hilariously incorrect one, I’ll love them forever), and a pack of playing cards. I don’t know if the husband is going to insist on finding a tea towel… but I don’t think we’re super-worried about it, either.
Anyways, if anyone sees any other lulz, I’d love to take a peeksee. Otherwise, have a nice day.
