Mash-Up Monday: Bartman’s Casino

Everybody, if you can, do the Bartman!
Shake your body, turn it out, if you can, man!
Move your butt to the side, yes, you can, can!
Everybody in the house, do the Bartman!

“Do the Bartman”, the 1990 song from The Simpsons, with a cover of Casino Night Zone 2P from Sonic the Hedgehog 2 on my Mash-Up Monday? Yes please!

There was originally a version with the actual music video, but it unfortunately got Foxblocked. D’oh!!

Found an interesting combination you would like to see on Mash-Up Monday? Have a mash-up of your own you would want featured on the Stadium? If your answer is yes, then send your wares and findings over to vizardjeffhog@sonicstadium.org!

Sonic to Make Another Appearance on The Simpsons

In their latest episode of GTTV, GameTrailers’ Geoff Keighley got to interview Executive Producer & Writer for The Simpsons Matt Selman and talk about their upcoming video game parody episode. The episode sees Homer, Bart and Lisa go to ‘E4’, which is a take on the biggest annual event in gaming – E3. In the preview clips shown, we see Sonic the Hedgehog will again make an appearance on the show, but in a much less familiar form. Some of the other video game franchises featured include: World of Warcraft, God of War and the pictured combination of Medal of Honor and Call of Duty.

The episode airs in the US November 13th.

SEGA has launched a new sponsorship deal with UK TV network Sky and popular animated comedy The Simpsons to promote Sonic’s big 20th Anniversary game Sonic Generations over the next 3 months. This new marketing push started two days ago and will end December 31st 2011.

The first episodes of The Simpsons featuring the Sonic Generations sponsorship aired yesterday and courtesy of YouTube user poppitzman, we have two video clips of the coinciding Sonic Generations ads. The first video (above) contains some new gameplay footage, including a portion of Modern Sonic’s Rooftop Run stage that sees him running up the clock tower from the original level in Sonic Unleashed.

The second clip (below) just shows Classic Sonic and Modern Sonic posing.
