Watch ‘My Little Pony’ Meet ’28 Days Later’ (Yes, You Read That Correctly) (VIDEO)
In your wildest fever dreams, you likely never conjured up something like the clip below. But somewhere in a nondescript writers’ room in the greater Los Angeles area, someone raised their hand and said the following: “Why don’t we combine My Little Pony with 28 Days Later?”
You wouldn’t think that the sweet rainbow-colored horseys you might have played with as a kid would be compatible with the 2002 apocalyptic film, but the writers of the Discovery Family series My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic, have proved you wrong.
Saturday’s episode of the series spoofs the zombie classic in an episode called “28 Pranks Later.” In it, Rainbow Dash pulls a prank on the residents of Ponyville, putting an ingredient in their cookies that colors their mouths like rainbows. Her friends decide to give her a taste of her own pranking medicine by telling her that they also turned everyone into cookie-craving zombies.
You just have to see it to believe it, so watch the exclusive clip from Saturday’s episode below.
