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 has over 176,000 subscribers as of July 2017.
'''"Mentally Advanced Series Redirect Animation"''' (Actual title is unknown) is a 2-minute, 44-second animation of which at least 11 copies was posted to YouTube by Dawn Somewhere on January 27, 2013.<ref>[https://web.archive.org/web/20140424093209/http://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL6109C69F1D59ACD9 The 11 deleted episodes of the series on a YouTube playlist (archived).] Retrieved 11 Feb '17</ref> The purpose of these videos was to redirect users to Dawn's official website, 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.
According to the ''My Little Pony'' Fan Labor Wiki, each of the redirect videos featured an identical animation by Rainbow Dash Presents, artist Petirep. 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 Dawn Somewhere's ''Coal-Powered 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."
Though at least one of the videos may have still been accessible as recently as September 24th, 2014,<ref>[http://twitter.com/Brandie_100/statuses/514957502895517696 Brandle_100's tweet mentioning one of the videos.] Retrieved 11 Feb '17</ref> 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 Somewhere's YouTube channel (the other being the ''Coal-Power 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.
On September 15th, 2019 YouTuber chubby checker found the animation and uploaded it onto their YouTube channel.
