Mash It Up

Use this site to re-combine video from ads directed at boys with audio from ads directed at girls (and vice versa) to create provocative fair use mash-ups. Alternately, make your own mashup of media targeted at two different groups. A list of examples of remix videos can be found here. For discussion:

  • How do the original ads characterize boys and girls and what they like?
  • How did the mashup change the original meaning?
  • Do you think there is value in making media “mashups”? Why or why not?
