The Wire as Toy Story. The Wire as The Lion King. The Wire as Harry Potter. The Wire as a bunch of movie posters. The Wire as Trailer Park Boys (previously). The Wire as a British appliance store.

Should have mentioned: NSFW in the way The Wire is NSFW.

When you come at a wizard, you best not miss.

Strange but funny mix of stuff.

I've just decided I don't like The Wire any more.

I kept waiting for Proposition Joe to show up (with a toaster or alarm clock he's in the middle of fixing) in that appliance store advert

> I've just decided I don't like The Wire any more.

Yeah, it's best to watch The Wire through once or twice (marathon it if you can), and then leave it to sit and percolate in the subconscious. One needn't take it out and polish it up all the time because it will just get brittle and cracks will form.

I dunno, I feel like this isn't complete without some "My Little Pony".

Nice editing. The lip sync was noticeably off in some places, but it's easy to look past because it's funny.

Here's a truly weird one: The Wire on Nickelodeon's iCarly. Not a "mash up", an actual Wire reference on the show.

The weirdest part is the laugh track. As if there's an entire studio audience laughing their asses off like, "ha ha ha, of course, that's from the Wire!" So bizarre.

Bizarre just begins to cover it, Windbox. Wow.

Yeah, I saw that iCarly clip a few weeks ago (linked on Collegehumor maybe?) and found it really chilling.
