Friendship Games short numero dos was officially released yesterday. I say "officially" because it was leaked online a few days ago in Spanish, which further proves to me that there's not a lot of coordination between DHX and its international departments (*cough*Perfect Day for Fun*cough*).
No matter. I hadn't watched the new short before yesterday anyway -- though I'm sure a number of people have. Anywho, let's talk about "Pinkie Spy".
I have always thought Rainbow Dash and Pinkie Pie played off each other well in solo stories, like in Griffon the Brush Off, Pinkie on the One, and more recently, The Lost Treasure of Griffonstone. More often than not, it's either Rainbow or Twilight who play the "straight man" to Pinkie's antics, and some would argue that Pinkie is even sillier here than usual.
Unlike the first short, this one acknowledges the Friendship Games to a certain degree, though I'm a little bummed that we didn't get to see any of the Shadowbolts in action.
Rainbow and Pinkie have some pretty amusing interaction throughout, and Pinkie's different disguises make for some funny visual gags. Admittedly, not a lot happens -- the focus is more on these two than any possibility of gathering information about the competition.
