I figured I'd drop in a little bit of satirical commentary on "Equestria Girls" while it's relevant (that is, before more information comes out and potentially renders the joke here pointless). For those not in the know, "Brad" is the fanon name of the presently unnamed male human character in Equestria Girls who many presume to be the show's token love interest for Twilight Sparkle. He supposedly has the same voice actor as Shining Armor, and the design on his shirt is a shield similar to Shining Armor's cutiemark.

I'd like to think that the writers did this because they are channeling some Sigmund Freud, and some blatant freudian overtones played for comedy would instantly make EQG a lot more bearable. =P

:iconfrank1605: Has a Spanish translation on their page:

AND YES I KNOW HE'S REALLY A ROYAL GUARD NAMED FLASH SENTRY AND HE'S A PEGASUS. Just thought I'd get that out there before the inevitable avalanche of "corrective" comments floods in. Fortunately I haven't really gotten any yet, so we're off to a good start. ;)

The joke is, Flash is enough like Shiny that it's got an incesty vibe.

Oh my gosh, I remember when everyone started calling him brad, and the who he might be, it was so priceless

Well, this is pretty dang funny and I think the most accurate description I can use for this is "professional". The anatomy is all spot-on, the colors are fantastic and the shading goes well with the over all style, seriously you got skills, bro. Kudos~ ^^

Cadence is like Red Forman right now; "Oh my Celestia, there are now a pair of morons in this palace!"

Perhaps it's a meat substitute? P: That...that tastes just as good. ...yes. XD
