The Wizard of Oz alphabetical cut reorders the scenes

Posted on

The Wizard of Oz in alphabetical order? Preposterous? Maybe. Genius? Also likely. You decide when you watch this video of the entire film recut so that all the words spoken play in alphabetical order. 

It begins much like Rihanna’s “Disturbia” (with loud screams of “aaiee”), and continues through “aunt” and “auntie” (there are a lot of those), and finishes with “zipper.” 

You have Vimeo user Matt Bucy to thank for this. “Warning,” he wrote in the caption, “This film contains extremely fast editing, flashes of light, abrupt changes in image and sound.”
