Hello everyone, welcome to Halo Spotlight. The place where Halo community creations are put in the spotlight and shown off to the world.
This Video Highlight piece is showing off a music video parody. Music video parodies and music parodies as a whole aren’t anything new to Halo, easily going back 10+ years, but this feature is a little different.
Now, before we go any further, be warned, the ‘NSFW’ in the title is for a very good reason. This is certainly a parody with adult themes and jokes added in, so please only watch if you’re 18+.
Well, now that that’s out of the way, we can enjoy the content. The animation is absolutely great in this parody, and fits the song perfectly. It’s funny, and hits on a lot of topics that are close to home with Halo fans, such as REQ packs. We won’t spoil anything though. You can find the video below.
As always, an amazing video has to come from a cool group of people, and this one is no different. The video was created by FOTUS, a community based group that’s been around for quite some time. The description from the video details this community, which is as follows:
“We are the first, and only xXx clan, that started in 1998 playing Old Unreal. Some of us, the original members are still playing together today. In 2012 we renamed to “Fist Of The Unicorns”… Giving people the fist since 2552!
We are a community based group, this means that we focus on having fun and we want to make sure this is a safe and fun place for people of all ages. If you are caught doing something against or hurting someone in this group you will be asked to resign. Please keep in mind, we have rules that we all follow and you will have to as well. If you are interested then please message me to join and how you found out about us.
Not too many groups can say they have been around for as long as we have, we may have had a name change, but we are still the same, thank you for the continued support!”
Naturally, with such a cool video, there’s also gotta be some special guests and an animator right? Right. The featured artist for this video was Ay Star, along with special guests Ron Ducats, 임석분, Archangel470 and TehSpearhead. The animator that brought it all together was Juicy Pencil.
A fun fact about ‘Snapshot’ it’s actually a prequel to another video by FOTUS named ‘Halo is For Everyone (Starbomb Parody)’. You can find that video below.
We asked for a bit of backstory on how ‘Snapshot’ came to be. This is what FOTUS had to say about ‘Snapshot’, and it’s relation to ‘Halo is For Everyone’.
“The Intention of the video and song (Snapshot) was to show a character named “Mr. FOTUS” who was a mean character in the beginning of his story, had no friends, and swore a LOT. But he changed and now has friends in the sequel video “Halo is for everyone”.”
We also asked FOTUS about how long ‘Snapshot’ took to create, and this is what they said:
“(It) Took about 3-6 months for the video to complete. Everyone liked the fun ‘Halo is for everyone’ style and suggestions to make a cartoon series. I’d like say, I have plans for it, it will be called “Mr. FOTUS”.”
Well the team here at Halo Spotlight really can’t wait to see more awesome videos in the “Mr. FOTUS” series. If you’d like to see more from FOTUS, you can check out their YouTube Channel and Twitter account.
