The Viral Assault on Aaron Sorkin Continues

in Filmmaking
on Jul 8, 2012

First there was the “Look here, internet girl” phenomenon and now there’s Kevin Porter‘s Supercut of recycled Aaron Sorkin dialogue, which is over 500,000 views so far on YouTube. The guy who wrote The Social Network is getting massively disrupted by viral internet commentary.

From Porter:

This video is a tribute to the work of Aaron Sorkin: the recycled dialogue, recurring phrases, and familiar plot lines. This is not intended as a critique but rather a playful excursion through Sorkin’s wonderful world of words.

Sorkin is a smart guy. When will he use the internet for his own witty riposte? (And, re the video collage itself, what do you think? Fair or foul?)
