If not that, have you seen a baby crying at colored objects, eggs with textures of cartoon characters on them being carried around a grassy area, or copyrighted characters doing things you'd never expect to see them do, and you know it isn't some fanfiction or fan-made series?
You may have seen an ElsaGate video. These videos seem harmless at first and for parents, they give something for their children to watch. It just looks like their favorite characters are going to be doing (weird) things with a giant library of similar-looking videos with a couple things swapped out each video, but under the surface, bad things await children!
For example, characters having needles with drugs in them inserted into their butts, violence, or potentially hinting on sexual things. Additionally, it's been theorized that the strange gibberish in the comments is a language for people doing bad things with children in real life. If you want to read more about ElsaGate, I recommend Investigating YouTube's website and YouTube channel.
|The perfect dress.|
I began to watch the videos, and as I did, I noticed some odd common behavior and Twilight Sparkle's various outfits. I realized if I wanted a custom plush doll of this girl as she won't have official merchandise for obvious reasons, I should find a good outfit.
ElsaGate videos try to sneak implied sexual content into videos, so I feared there'd be various "sexy" dresses and bathing suits before I would find a dress I liked, but I was proven wrong when I found a video showing her wearing a blue dress. Nothing too sexy but not too plain, perfect.
Before I talk about the problems with this series, let's introduce the main characters of this series!
Twilight Sparkle is a human girl that looks like a certain alicorn but has normal, white skin and a younger-looking face. She wears many outfits, the most recognizable being the one from Equestria Girls, shown above. She is normally nice, but if anyone tries to mess with her through pranks or other things, she will find a way to get revenge, using physical combat if necessary.
A boy who loves Twilight Sparkle, in some scenes seemingly married to her. He likes to do things that usually get him in trouble, such as pulling pranks on Twilight Sparkle or stealing from people. He never gets away with any of it, and even if he's hurt or thrown in jail, he's fine by the next scene.
Adagio is another girl from Equestria Girls that usually messes with Twilight Sparkle and Flash when she's around them. The worst she's done yet is pull off Twilight Sparkle's skirt in front of her class. She has helped Twilight Sparkle get ready for her wedding by applying blush to her face and has shown she can ride a dinosaur in a race.
A recolored, pink-haired troll from the Trolls series. One time, her hair was colored cyan. She rarely pulls pranks and has been shown to own a pizza place which was the target of Flash's thievery once.
|Warning: Whatever you do, do not do anything mean to|
Twilight or you will feel her foot's force!
|Y'know, this should be a type of bubble gum.|
|1, 2, 3, poop in the face! No wonders Twilight Sparkle snaps at Flash quickly!|
- Flash offers bubblegum that forms a heart when blown out for $5 each in class. Twilight buys one from him then eats it. When she blows it out, it's revealed to be a frowning pile of poop instead, which then explodes on her face. (first picture above)
- Flash throws a rock at a house, scaring a bird that's sitting outside the second floor. He quickly runs off-screen carrying something brown and a bucket, hiding the brown pile under the bucket just before Twilight opens the door. At a count of three, Flash lifts the bucket and Twilight dives at what's underneath it, a pile of poop. (second picture above)
- Twilight and Flash are riding on a bicycle. Twilight requests to drive it and Flash gets off, holding it from behind. As the bicycle approaches a tree, Flash lets go. Twilight falls off the bicycle onto a pile of poop on the ground, which she throws at Flash. The poop pile has the same frown on it as #1.
|What a strange family.|
So, what are the problems with the three things talked about today? First, violence being a very common reaction in this bootleg series. That's a problem as it may teach children that if anyone doesn't do what they like, they can feel free to punch them, kick them in-between the legs, or throw whatever they're holding at them. Children's shows never tell kids that as it isn't the right thing to do.
Secondly, poop references are here. They aren't as bad as violence appearing everywhere, but this could make kids think that poop can be a funny thing to play with or that throwing poop at people would do anything good. I would make a paragraph on the differently-aged versions of each main character, but it's obvious how hard it is to tell teenage and adult Twilight Sparkle apart.
