Hot Topic's Hot Minute interview series includes multiple Hub videos promoting My Little Pony Friendship is Magic. Each video's interview is one minute long. Hot Topic's YouTube channel has a playlist of the videos, "HOT MINUTE: My Little Pony's Mane 6".
Hot Minute with Fluttershy, released under the title "Hot Minute: My Little Pony's Fluttershy", is the first My Little Pony video in the series. It was published by Hot Topic's YouTube channel on November 9, 2012, and was promoted by The Hub's Facebook page and Twitter account on November 13, 2012. In the video, Fluttershy is interviewed inside her cottage. At the beginning of the video, the title sequence very briefly displays "GO-TO MAIN STYLING TIP" during the transition to the interview. As in the show, Fluttershy is voiced by Andrea Libman.
Mane styling tip
"Hedgehogs are great at brushing. Ooh, and I know three robins that perform a perfect aerial braid."
What's your biggest fear
"Aaaaah! ...I'm sorry. That question startled me."
Any good luck charms
"Angel Bunny has always brought good things my way. He says it's all in the paw."
Ever had stage fright
"Yes... Right now..."
What's your dream pet
"Animals are individuals. I don't like to treat them as pets."
Any special talents
"Rainbow Dash says I'm great at cheering. Yay."
"Oh, I just love the color of a baby chick in spring."
Who's your best friend
"Maybe Pinkie Pie? Oh, no, wait. Rainbow Dash. Oh! And-and Twilight too! Rarity? Applejack?! Ohhh, I can't decide! ...Angel?"
Hot Minute with Rainbow Dash, released under the title "Hot Minute: My Little Pony's Rainbow Dash", is the second My Little Pony video in the series. It was published by Hot Topic's YouTube channel on November 16, 2012, and was promoted by The Hub's Facebook page and Twitter account on November 19, 2012. In the video, Rainbow Dash is interviewed at the track. At the beginning of the video, the title sequence very briefly displays "GO-TO MAIN STYLING TIP" during the transition to the interview, and at the end of the video, the pair of Hub animations repeats once with a banner at the top of the screen displaying "Marker 1" and subsequently "Marker 2".
"I've got an awesome one that I'm working on, but it needs to be 20% cooler before I let that bad boy out."
"Well, with a talented friend like Rarity, everything fits perfectly."
Any sweet flying tricks
"Not unless you count falling on my face 'sweet'. I dunno how Rainbow Dash makes everything look so...easy."
Any wing-care tips
"Fluttershy told me to mimic hummingbirds' gentle wing-care habits for longevity. But Rainbow Dash told me if I do two hundred wing-ups a day, I'll be a champion and a princess in no time. I think I'll just have to find a balance between the two."
Hot Minute with Pinkie Pie, released under the title "Hot Minute: My Little Pony's Pinkie Pie", is the fourth My Little Pony video in the series. It was published by Hot Topic's YouTube channel on May 3, 2013, and was promoted by The Hub's Facebook page and Twitter account at the end of the following week in the same month. In the video, Pinkie Pie is interviewed in Ponyville.
Hot Minute with Applejack, released under the title "Hot Minute: My Little Pony's Applejack", is the fifth My Little Pony video in the series. It was published by Hot Topic's YouTube channel on September 24, 2013, and was promoted by The Hub's Twitter account and Facebook page later in the same week. In the video, Applejack is interviewed at Sweet Apple Acres.
Hot Minute with Rarity, released under the title "Hot Minute: My Little Pony's Rarity", is the sixth My Little Pony video in the series. It was uploaded by Hot Topic's YouTube channel on October 10, 2013, which was the third anniversary of the show's debut. In the video, Rarity is interviewed at Canterlot Castle with Spike. During the interview, multiple short clips are shown, including a shot of Twilight in the opening sequence with wings.
Tips for a shiny mane
Rarity: "Brush, brush, brush, darling! Thirty strokes per strand of hair makes manes look great without a care! Well, it works for me anyway." Spike: "I'll say it does!"
Any tips for bad mane days
"I don't have any personal experience, of course. But I think the best course of action is to wear a dazzling hat. Anything short of dazzling won't do."
"An outfit must match the occasion, darling, and I have a favorite outfit for every occasion!"
Your sister embarrass you
Rarity: "Oh, I could never be embarrassed by Sweetie Belle. She might be a bit enthusiastic for my tastes sometimes, but I love her more than anything in the world." Spike: "Rats!"
Ever want wings again
Rarity: "Oh, no, darling! Those things are more trouble than they're worth for me. Just a nightmare to accessorize. But they do look ravishing on Twilight Sparkle, Rainbow Dash, and my dear Fluttershy." Spike: "What about me?" Rarity: Oh, yes, Spikey-poo! You have ravishing wings too!"[note 1]
