Web Video: The Bunny Perspective
All my friends are dead and they don't like me anymore. The Bunny Perspective
They moved along, they've changed, and now they find me quite a bore.
Way back then, it was okay to be a little weird.
But all my friends are dead and some have even grown a beard.
is a review show starring Phil Buni, a Jim Henson
-inspired bunny puppet with a love for pot and a quick wit, played by Michael Bennett. Phil usually focuses on good movies, although occasionally he will delve into the terrible.
This show provides examples of:
- Accentuate the Negative: Inverted with most of his reviews, the exceptions being Gigli, Dreamcatcher, The Condemned, Jeff Dunham's Christmas special, Repo Men, Allen Gregory, The Sorcerer's Apprentice, and any of the Glee episodes.
- Acting for Two: Mike Bennett not only plays Phil, but also Barnabus the Dead Guy and High Flier, his persona on Livestream.
- Actually Pretty Funny: Ben Affleck's Internet-related insult in Gigli was the one funny line in the movie.
- April Fools' Day: For 2012, what was advertised as a Bunny Perspective episode on the movie Time Crimes ended up being the first episode of the long delayed "Goregasm" show... which was about Sex and the City 2.
- Angrish: Pretty much anytime he reviews Glee, especially the Christmas episode.
- Berserk Button: In every negative review.
- Expy: A slightly less homicidally insane Max + Beer + Pot + A leather jacket.
- The Cameo:
- Christmas Episode: His review of The Muppet Christmas Carol.
- Cluster F-Bomb: The Glee Christmas episode review.
- Crossover: With JewWario for the Sexy Famicom Moments video.
- Funny Background Event: In his review of "Michael", there is an ever-growing assortment of toys and figurines appearing behind him whenever he cuts back from a voiceover. He doesn't notice until the end of the video.
: What the -
Where'd these toys come from? They weren't here before!
- Fun with Acronyms: Mike's Stoned V-Logs feature a character called Creepy Uncle Monkey.
- Misaimed Fandom: His main problem with the Rocky Horror Picture Show episode of Glee is that the show simply doesn't get the message of the movie or of the individual songs.
- Political Correctness Gone Mad: Inverted: He criticizes Jeff Dunham for utilizing racism, sexism, homophobia, religious intolerance and what he calls "drug fear" while pretending to take a stand against PC. An example is in Dunham's Christmas special where he is greeted with thunderous applause after letting one of his puppets defend saying "Merry Christmas" instead of "Happy Holidays". Phil Buni says that "Happy Holidays" encompasses both Christmas and New Year, and has nothing to do with PC, but also that showing respect to other religions should be self-evident.
- Seasonal Rot: In-Universe. His opinion of Glee is that season 1 was decent and then everything went downhill from there.
- Surreal Horror: His review of The Signal...
- Surreal Theme Tune: Mike's brother wrote his theme song, which seems to be emulating the style of They Might Be Giants.
