The Power Rangers Gritty Short Film Has Been Taken Down..
Saban Brands, which owns the rights to the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers, wasn't pleased with the R-rated take on their characters and had the video pulled from Vimeo and now they've successfully had it yanked from YouTube as well. (Via Comicbook.com)
Like that really makes a difference... Once something is online, it's there forever. Heck, someone already put the video back up on YouTube! If fans take a show or a movie and decide to make a short film for it, that's free publicity for your company. Some people still live in the past and have no idea how things work today. The original Power Rangers cast loved it, well almost all of them did... I'm talking about you Jason David Frank. Jason said that Power Rangers stuff should be kid friendly, yet he... *stabbed Scorpion through the head* You're what we call... a sellout.
This whole thing is crazy, everybody needs to chill out and not be so butt hurt about everything. THIS IS WHY WE CAN'T HAVE NICE THINGS.
What do you guys think about all this? Do you agree with them taking down the video or should they have kept it up?
