Sometimes, what we need most, is right around the corner

What I like about this is how the choice of music completely affects the mood of the piece - very clever indeed! 
***edit*** - the song below has now become my new (not so) guilty pleasure as a result of the above clip - yeah baby! i dig it the most!

I love the way it exposes how anything can be made to look like anything through the medium of a well-edited trail. Throw on a feelgood bit of music and bob's your uncle.

Wasn't there a story recently about people walking out of Tim Burton's Sweeny Todd because they didn't realise it was an opera? The trailer, after all, hadn't shown any singing...

There are some other brilliant recut trailers on youtube

Must Love Jaws is one of the best

and the zombie version of West Side Story is also good

Also clever. The apple peeling scene takes on a whole new significance....

I love Scary Mary Poppins, but then again, there always was a ruthless self absorbed streak to her.
