Today's Short: "Joker & Harley Quinn - Circles"

todaysshort

I confess, I've always had the thought that Brittany Murphy as a live-action Harley Quinn would work. I came up with the idea years ago, before I had any inkling of what Heath Ledger would do with Joker. So this music video, pieced together from The Dark Knight and various Brittany Murphy films, shows a really cool visualization of how the two would've worked together onscreen. The song is "Circles" by Natalie Walker.

From the editor's description of the video:

...we see Harley is all locked up at Arkham; the Joker having ditched her on one of their heists, leaving her for the cops. After months, Harley's sanity (whatever little is left) is slowly becoming more damaged as her twisted adoration and loathing of the joker continues until one day, he shows up and breaks her out, manipulating her once again to be by his side. Near the end, the Joker is captured by Bats and put into prison while Harley flees the scene. Looking in the mirror (which btw the face she makes is priceless and fit just the way I wanted; meant to be comical as she's psycho yet serious all the while). She breaks him out of prison and with Harley's final mad smile and Joker's approving gaze, we see things are constantly going in 'circles' for Harley, she'll never stop loving the Joker and will always go running back to him no matter how much he mentally and physically abuses her.
