POWER/RANGERS NSFW Version Taken Down By Vimeo; Saban Appears To Hate Fun

This is why we can’t have nice things.

Vimeo, despite making it a staff’s pick, has taken down Adi Shankar produced and Joseph Kahn directed POWER/RANGERS, a gritty reboot of the children’s program as part of Shankar’s continuing “bootleg” series.

It’s a fair assumption to make that Saban Entertainment is the likely culprit. Particularly when you consider director Kahn’s response:

Furthermore, it appears that Kahn’s response to the Vimeo takedown is to point to the YouTube video, presumably under the belief that YouTube may fair better at telling Saban to buzz off. Particularly when one considers that the fan film has made no money, was paid for out of pocket, and the video itself is not monetized.

The YouTube video has so far racked up over 700,000 views in less than 18 hours.

Do you think Saban’s going to back down? Or will they ignore the clamoring of the Internet? Let us know in the comments below.
