This Mash-Up Of ‘The Witcher’ And ‘Toxic’ By Britney Spears Will Give You Life
'The Witcher' + Britney Spears = viral perfection.
In the lead-up to its release, much was made about the similarities between Netflix’s The Witcher and Game of Thrones.
To be honest, that’s not quite right. Game of Thrones was a deliberately dour slog, an over-the-top serve of bleakness and grit that invoked human nature at its most ugly. The Witcher can be bleak occasionally too, but in its balls-to-the wall silliness — in its pure, lighthearted, gleeful sense of mischief — it’s more like a swords and sorcery sitcom from the ’80s.
Think Xena: Warrior Princess, but with Henry Cavill and more songs about tossing coins to your Witcher.
In fact, so undeniably camp is the new show, that it was only a matter of time till someone was going to mash it up with another glittery classic.
And lo and behold, the internet has provided, combining a fight scene from the show’s first episode with Britney Spears’ ‘Toxic’.
Watch the whole delightful serve of silliness here:
Still thinking about that fight from the first episode of #TheWitcher.
Being set to “Toxic” is even better. pic.twitter.com/z0eIkRI63e
