Full version of previous promo, 1:30 long.

It's pretty cool but I'm not sure what to think about that. personally I don't want to see ANY fanservices in the show (except Derpy). It will kill it, imo.

Anyway, they named Vinyl Scratch as DJ-PON3. I sense a flamewar!

Mind you, this's Pinkie Pie we're talking about here...she's got a bit of a track record of breaking the fourth wall. Maybe they're planning on using brony shout-outs as a breaking-the-fourth-wall sort of deal, but I doubt we'll be hearing it from, say, Twilight anytime soon.

And, when you think about it, it kinda makes sense...if I was running a young network representing a huge, risky investment from the parent company, and suddenly an obsessive peripheral audience started telling everyone they met about one of my shows, I'd pay attention to them, too.

I'd figured it was supposed to be pronounced "deejay pone-ee" (as in "pony"), but I guess that'd be pretty hard to make unambiguous in the spot. I guess it's supposed to be a visual pun, like a computer tech telling someone they've got the infamous "I-D-ten-T" error.

As far as fanservice goes, there's a right way, and a wrong way of doing things.

The right way doesn't ultimately affect how the show is written. Rather than taking a fan idea and basing something around it, the writers take their idea, and add an element that both the peripheral fans and the regular fans would understand. For instance, in "Feeling Pinkie Keen", it could have been (and was originally) any random pony that dropped all that stuff on Twilight. By instead making it Derpy, they added an extra joke that the bronies would understand, without affecting the regular viewers. Another way to do this properly is to make a reference that makes sense without knowing it's a reference, such as Rarity's wings evaporating; it makes sense regardless of whether or not you know the story of Icarus.

Have a scene that needs a DJ? Use DJ Pon-3
Need a klutz? Use Derpy

The wrong way is to focus on things the bronies would understand, but the regular fans wouldn't. For example: an episode about Rainbow Dash coming out of the closet; shippers would crap themselves, but the kids watching would just go "huh?".

In a nutshell:
Good fanservice: Kids and adults enjoy it. Bronies enjoy it, and go "I see what they did there".
Bad fanservice: Kids and adults go "huh?". Bronies enjoy it and go "I see what they did there".

As far as shout-outs to the brony phenomenon itself, consider this list:
http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/ShoutOut/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic
All of these blend seamlessly into the story, since they're done subtly. If handled correctly, I don't see why more shout-outs to the brony phenomenon couldn't be included.

I would suggest sending the comment to some of the more in-touch-with-the-fanbase creators, but that would be probably insult their intelligence after they've given us such a compliment.

In my opinion, it would have to reach a very noticeably high level of saturation before it starts to become distracting. I am always open to more fan service, personally.

Speaking of fanservice: the parallel between Rarity's wings and the infamously easy-to-break "flutter wings" from G1 ponies is an awesome example of how to do fanservice right! If you don't catch the reference you're still not missing anything.

I don't. The OMG factor was enough to carry this, but lyrically it's not very solid writing. A whole album would go into cringe territory in a hurry. It would be like a ponyfied Kidz Bop album, or those shallow parodies they teach at church camps.

I'm pretty sure they pronounced it like that on purpose to show that they knew about it. If they had just said "DJ pony" people wouldn't get it and would continue to speculate, whereas all they had to do was say "three" and people would instantly catch on.

I have watched this video probably 20 times in the past two days. It got stuck in my head so bad. I fucking love Hasbro.

You are now aware that they are going to do what they can to get us all our pony fix and keep us interested during the off-season. Manly tears of joy have been shed.

To the neighsayers: Have faith guys! They know what they are doing. They are professionals. Why would they change something that works so well? Answer: They wouldn't.

This is... amazing. 8O I love that they've acknowledged our existence.

And concerning the possible amount of fanservice next season, I'd love a few little things, especially if they somehow incorporated Doctor Whooves coming out of a police/phone box or something. Just in the background. And more Derpy moments when the scene calls for a klutz. :D

Slowpoke here, but personally I think this whole thing was just something Hasbo made the voice staff do to make the company appear cool. It certainly is alot less subtle and kid friendly (given that the original song is about how California is full of party-hardy harlots) than the actual show. Not to mention how they directly contacted "us" instead of letting the show's staff mention it. It all seems as if they're trying to use the fanbase as a way to make more business. It echos the late 90s/early 2000s, when companies such as Sprite, MTV, etc. tried appealing directly to teenagers because of their disposable income. Now I'm not saying that the show itself is trying to make money of us. It was Lauren's way of getting a job and accomplishing her goal of making a good girls' show that doesn't annoy people. However, what I am saying is that Hasbro itself might be trying to use the show and the fanbase as tools to sell more products and earn more money. I can already see that they managed to produce a positive response out of us.

Obviously the goal is to sell products. That's what companies DO. That's why it's called a promo! And I'm fine with this, too. If that's the advertising we get, I will buy every single pony I can find.

I think it's an awesome nod to the fans, even though I know that all of the Pony franchise is of course for-profit. I'll support them with my wallet when they license some merchandise that I would be interested in.

And of course even though I despise Katy Perry I've listened to this song/video on repeat for three days. Help!
