A week or so ago, YouTuber Kevin Logan, known for some pretty hilarious takedowns of some of the manosphere’s, er, leading lights, put up the first installment of what was intended to be a 2 1/2 hour long “review” of Jordan Owen’s The Sarkeesian Effect that consisted basically of him making snotty remarks as he watched the terrible, terrible film.
Owen sent a DMCA takedown notice, claiming (and I suppose he was right) that Logan’s video showed a lot more of his movie than “fair use” would allow. Like pretty much the entire first 25 minutes of it. So it was removed from YouTube.
Logan has returned with a couple of new videos that solve that whole “fair use” problem in a novel way.
Instead of talking over Owen’s film, he has instead chosen to do a sort of parodic re-enactment of it, which alternates clips from the film (or at least the footage that Owen “borrowed” for the film and that he doesn’t actually have rights to) with droning fake narration, weird “puppet” shows, and some distinctly unprofessional vocal versions of Owen’s music for the film.
“Davis Aurini” makes intermittent appearances, in the form of an egg with a face drawn on it.
As one of the few people who’s actually seen Owen’s terrible film, I have to say that Logan’s parody is pretty much spot on, and is about a hundred times more entertaining to watch than the plodding original.
Then again, he’s only made it through about a quarter of the film so far.
Without further ado, the first two installments of What Can Only Be Called Kevin Logan’s The Sarkeesian Effect.
It’s crude and deliberately stupid but I enjoyed it.
