(I’m so sorry if the videos don’t work….try it on desktop or read the updates at the end of the post)
It’s that time of year. Comic Con. And guess what? I’m not there. I don’t have a bucket list per se, but going to SDCC (or any big name con) is something I really want to do.
Luckily, social media helps people like me who are so so so far away from the goodness stay connected. Pictures and videos and panel streams are all at our fingertips, and it makes us feel a bit better.
As my readers should know, I love Marvel’s TV shows. SHIELD is amazing and Agent Carter was fantastic. And what’s more is that the casts for those shows are some of the funniest, coolest, prettiest people ever! I’m hopelessly in love with everyone!
Anyone heard of Dubsmash? It’s this little social media thing where people lip sync to bits of songs/movies. It’s not very popular, but Hayley Atwell, who plays Peggy Carter, uses it well as she goes to various cons and hangs with other actors/friends.
So naturally, SDCC is a great place for a Dubsmash battle to take place! Hayley and her costar James D’Arcy (who plays Jarvis on Agent Carter) against Chloe Bennet (Skye/Daisy on SHIELD) and Clark Gregg (Coulson on SHIELD/Avengers) with help from the SHIELD cast. For the past few days, the people of the internet have been endlessly amused by watching this battle go on. I loved it so much, I needed to share it here! Masterpieces like this deserve to be blogged about! So take a look at this gloriousness:
It started with this from Clark and Chloe:
To which Hayley and James replied with this:
And newbie Luke Mitchell (who plays Lincoln on SHIELD) supplied us with this bonus vid:
So Chloe and Clark retaliated with:
And again Luke gave us a BTS video:
As did Elizabeth (who plays Simmons):
Hayley and James’ next move was:
And Chloe’s own song from when she was a pop singer in China:
And they made Clark film Chloe’s reaction: https://www.facebook.com/video.php?v=866024040100424 (sorry I couldn’t get the video to embed!)
So Chloe and Clark got their show’s cast to help out for this epic Dubsmash complete with Clark dressed as Hayley’s character Peggy:
And maybe Hayley considered that defeat because she responds with:
And we see James look flabbergasted thanks to Brett (who plays Ward on SHIELD):
Lastly are the two sides in the same video, with an appropriate song:
And now SDCC is over, thus ending an amazing battle! Isn’t this just the best? It’s just so fun and silly and it definitely helps with my SDCC blues! Chloe and Clarks’ final group Dubsmash was brilliant, but it was a great move for Hayley and James to use Chloe’s own song! This is just an example of how silly and lovable the casts are, and this post will definitely be something I pull up when I need a pick-me-up!
So now, if you’ll excuse me, I’m going to go look at more SDCC pics and panels and cry about how I’m not there.
That’s all for now!

The SDCC is over but the battle goes on! Hayley and James got some of their own help….
And then they gave us a bonus, which I feel was a hit to Clark, who’s wife starred in Dirty Dancing.
You can bet that if more Dubsmashes come out, I will deffo add them here!

A new Dubsmash has arrived! Chloe (with her cute new Daisy haircut) and Clark (still dressed as Peggy) gave us this video:

Hayley Attwell has deleted her Twitter so the videos linked above no longer work. But this is the internet, and nothing is ever really gone, so here are ALL the Dubsmash videos including the ones they did after SDCC for charity.
