Another episode of My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic, another completely obscure reference. In this week’s episode “Secret of My Excess”, who’s title is a reference to a 1980s Michael J. Fox movie, we see Spike the Dragon lusting after a delicious looking cupcake encrusted with sapphires. Spike’s dilated pupils may look familiar to some, as he bears a striking resemblance to Stains, also known as the “Dramatic Cupcake Dog”.
Stains gained great Internet fame after being featured on the TV show “It’s Me or the Dog” on Animal Planet. His video was then edited with some special effects with added music from the score of “Requiem for a Dream”, which happens to be used in about 30% of all trailers ever made.
Spike got to eat his cupcake. When will Stains get his?
Here’s the original clip featuring Stains:
