Since we’re weekend warriors now, it only makes sense that we break from the pack and engage in some rampant free-thinking. Pretty soon YouTube and Hollywood should completely merge and we will be seeing our favorite YouTubers starring in our favorite TV shows and movies. Of course, until that point, we can only speculate on what might have been had this merger happened 10, 20 or 500 years ago. So every weekend, we take a pop culture movie and recast it with YouTubers who we think might have worked perfectly in that role.
This week: 50 Shades of Grey
Played in the movie by: Dakota Johnson
Played in our version by: Joey Graceffa
There’s just something beautiful and innocent about Joey Graceffa. Sure some people might have their issues with him, but he seems like an amazingly apt — and bold — choice for the role of Anastasia, a character who learns the majesty of pain and pleasure at the hands of a rich young billionaire.
Played in the movie by: Jamie Dornan
Played in our version by: A Canned Ham
There’s just something beautiful and innocent about Canned Ham. Sure, some people might have their issue with it, but can you think of anything you would rather see as a billionaire teaching Joey Graceffa about pain and pleasure? Yeah, me neither.
