Videos: House of Cards Yellow and Blue Formula Exposed; Linguists Examine Kevin Spacey’s Southern Accent
Posted on Thursday, March 5th, 2015 by Peter Sciretta
If you’re like me, you’re busy binging your way through House of Cards season 3 (please, no spoilers) and are currently invested in the drama. I thought today would be a good time to highlight two new House of Cards videos which have been making their way across the interwebs.
The first is a House of Cards yellow and blue conspiracy theory video essay which attempts to prove that the show’s sophisticated look is actually just composed using a simple color formula. You might remember the orange/blue movie poster formula we highlighted almost six years ago — you weren’t able to look at movie posters the same afterwards, will you be able to watch House of Cards without noticing this simple composition breakdown?
The second video, linguists examine the history behind Frank Underwood’s accent and specifically why Kevin Spacey‘s accent in House of Cards sounds off. Watch the House of Cards yellow and blue video and the Frank Underwood accent video after the jump.

Way back around 2008 or so, David O. Russell shot most of a political satire called Nailed. The reason we’ve never seen it is that he eventually abandoned it in 2010, after many stops and starts and financial struggles. But every so often, we get word that someone, somewhere might still try to put it out. And as today, a real release seems closer than ever.
U.K. distributor Arrow Films has scooped up Nailed, now called Politics of Love, with intentions of releasing it in 2015. Does that mean it might eventually make its way to our shores as well? Hit the jump for more details on the Nailed release, including the first official synopsis.
