Brilliant mashup turns teen comedies into faux Gotham High trailer

Ah, the teen comedy! Is there nothing more temporary, more fleeting and more of its time? Unless, of course, you repurpose footage from those films and turn them into a trailer for what would be the coolest series/film in history—Gotham High.

Some people see 10 Things I Hate About You and only think of the Shakespeare play on which it's based. Others realize that Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Heath Ledger are in it and see potential. BATMAN potential.

In point of fact, basically all of the lead actors from Christopher Nolan's Batman films have been in teen comedies or something similar in their careers, which is exactly how Gotham High was able to come into existence. The faux trailer, as created by the folks from Movie Clips Trailers is so well made that many of the commenters on YouTube were convinced it was a real thing. That's pretty impressive, considering they used clips from Powder to create a Mister Freeze character for their teen flick.

Oh, and make sure you stick around until the end, when the narrator is revealed, because it's absolutely hysterical.
