New-Style 'Gatsby' Music Invades Old 'Gatsby' Trailer


As you may know, there have been 1,784 different movie versions of F. Scott Fitzgerald's classic American novel, "The Great Gatsby," give or take about 1,778 or 1,779. The above is a mashup of two of them, specifically Jack Clayton's 1974 version and Baz Luhrmann's 3D version which debuted in theaters just this past Friday.

Specifically, the bored video editor who made this and put it on the internet in his (or her) spare time took the music from the 2013 trailer and put it over the 1974 trailer, which would have undoubtedly freaked out Clayton and anyone working on the movie at that time. ("What on earth is a 'Jay-Z'? Is it a pastry of some sort?")

The results are nonetheless quite satisfying, especially if you picture Robert Redford breaking character wondering who is doing all that screaming at the end. (It's the band Filter covering "Happy Together," Mr. Redford. Please carry on.)

The real shame is that there is no mashed up trailer for the 2013 version with 1974's music, so we could have seen the fancypants "From director Baz Luhrmann" graphic with Donny Osmond's "Puppy Love" playing over it. Yep. That's a shame, alright.
