This article in Slate features satire on the Manic Pixie Dreamgirl (MPDG for short). Think Zooey Deschanel in anything or Natalie Portman in Garden State (but not Black Swan). Quirky girl full of life that turns stuffy male character’s life upside down.
I love that the video satire features juggling clubs and a uke. I also can’t wait for someone to do a Manic Pixie Zombie.
