How to Kill a Mockingbird is a flash animation parody of Harper Lee’s classic novel, To Kill a Mockingbird. The short film is presented as a child’s book report on the novel, but quickly diverts from the actual plot, into a battle between Pirates vs. Ninjas , making it obvious the child never finished the book. It is one of the web’s earliest viral videos.
“How to Kill a Mockingbird” was created by two Stanford undergraduates, Anthony Scodary and Nico Benitez. The video was originally posted to Scodary’s now defunct Stanford student page on November 13th, 2014.The following day, Scodary and Benitez registered their own website, AwesomeFunny.com, where they linked back to the Stanford page.
The video was uploaded to AlbinoBlackSheep on February 12th, 2009, and on Vimeo on October 6th, 2009. On June 15th, 2009, TVTropes added an entry for “How to Kill a Mocking Bird,” describing it as:
“a 12 minute-long Flash movie made by Anthony Scodary and Nico Benitez. It centers on a book report of To Kill a Mockingbird made by a little boy who didn’t read the entire book, leading to Crazy Awesome results.”
The video was first uploaded to YouTube by YouTuber mockingbirdv on November 7th, 2010. As of July 2014, the video has gained over 61,000 views.
Searches for “how to kill a mockingbird” follow a cyclical pattern, with peaks during the American school year and lows during the summer. However, it is clear that there is a huge spike in searches for the video in late 2004 and early 2005, when the animation was released.
