Status: Lost

The Mentally Advanced Series is an abridged internet series based on the television series My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic, created by FiMFlamFilosophy (a.k.a. Greg Hoffman), whose YouTube channel Dawn Somewhere[1] has over 176,000 subscribers as of July 2017.

"Mentally Advanced Series Redirect Animation" (The actual title is unknown) is a 2 minute, 44-second animation of which at least 11 copies[2] was posted to YouTube by Dawn Somewhere on January 27, 2013. The purpose of these videos was to redirect users to Dawn's official website,[3] in order to watch episodes of the Mentally Advanced Series that had been removed from YouTube due to its Content ID system. Each individual video was named after its corresponding episode ('Mentally Advanced Series Ep1', 'Mentally Advanced Series Ep2', ect.). However, these videos have since disappeared entirely.

Plot

According to the My Little Pony Fan Labor Wikia, each of the redirect videos featured an identical animation by Rainbow Dash Presents,[4] artist Petirep.[5] The plot focused on Fluttershy attempting to get an orangutan dressed as a cop and named 'YouTube' to post her valentine that read 'To All My Friends on YouTube!' on its refrigerator; but instead the orangutan took the valentine to be burned by another orangutan named 'Mr. Moneybags'. 'YouTube' and Mr. Moneybags's then eat a hamburger, an inside joke to FimFlamFilosophy's Coal-Powered Cookie Train Album Release (Animated Video)|Cookie Train Album ad, in which the same orangutan cop accused Dash of being the 'Hamburgerlar' and confiscated her hamburgers. Each of the redirect videos featured a unique line of poetry ending with 'Nothing's perfect in life.'

Availability

Though at least one of the videos may have still been accessible as recently as September 24, 2014,[6] and Patreon creation pages under the name "Gregory Hoffman" still exist for them as well, attempting to access any of the animations now shows that the video is unavailable. The reason for their removal is unknown, since this animation is one of the only two entirely original fan animations that seem to have been removed from Dawn Something's YouTube channel (the other being the Cookie Train Album video). Other removed videos that did not feature original animations (such as the original Mentally Advanced episodes) have been preserved and reuploaded by fans and/or are available on the creator's website, but this does not seem to be the case for these videos. No additional copies of the animation appear to exist, and the only records of its actual visual content that still remain are four screenshots from the animator's DeviantArt page.
