Great job, Internet: Indie-rockers get Pilgrim-ized.

Great job, Internet: Indie-rockers get Pilgrim-ized.

In case you haven’t noticed, we here at The A.V. Club are pretty excited about Edgar Wright’s adaptation of Bryan Lee O'Malley's Scott Pilgrim comic books. We’ve been following the evolution of Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World for quite some time now—via Wright’s excellent video blog of the production process—but the buzz has been escalating rapidly since the trailer debuted. The movie hit the next logical step in the Internet hype machine last week with the debut of the Scott Pilgrim Avatar Creator, an online avatar generator that, judging by all the manga-eyed, fluorescently-haired icons in our Twitter feed, many of you have already taken advantage of. Paste utilized the generator in a manner befitting the indie-rock-obsessed series, pumping out Pilgrim-ized images of luminaries like Colin Meloy (“The Spoiled Rich Kid”), Neko Case (“The Drunk Fat Guy”), and Win Butler (“The Total Babe”). (Apparently feeling left out, Eddie Argos made his own damn avatar and tweeted it to Wright.) Check out the full gallery here
