"The Greatest Showman:" it's a film that won the hearts of movie-goers everywhere. But if you're in the minority that actually doesn't enjoy watching mediocre acrobatic routines get ruined by a singing Zac Efron, you just might find this list a tad funny! Finally, "The Greatest Showman" is getting the RiffTrax treatment! Which one of these captioned movie stills is your favorite?

Thanks again!  So, which Hugh/Zac pic was you favorite?  The Cheers reference or the cameraman?  Or the head in the game?

Don't suppose you realize that Rifftrax is a trademarked media company.  Unless you actually work for them (or have some kind of insider information), I'm not sure you can (or should) make the above claim:
"Finally, "The Greatest Showman" is getting the RiffTrax treatment!"

Care to elaborate on your claim?

Someone has suggested The Greatest Showman to the site's idea section.  No official notice it has been chosen as a possible published project.

Thank you, Stephen for your concern.  I would edit my suggestion now, but can't because people have responded.  I wasn't trying to pass it off like RiffTrax had actually riffed the film.  I will try to find a way to change that wording.  Again, thank you!

Oh, thank you!  I don't think I'd get in trouble for the RiffTrax statement, but I will try to change it if I can.  Again, thank you for your help!

So, I went into my actual IMDB list, and changed the wording to
"Finally, 'The Greatest Showman' is getting (my) RiffTrax treatment!"
Hopefully if this gets turned into a poll, that wording will stay.

Hi NarniaisAwesome,

The title of your list is still:
The Greatest Showman... RiffTrax Style!

I suspect you made the edit, but did not save the edit. When you make an edit to a list you need to click the blue Check Mark, then click the blue Done button.

We may still have to work on the wording of the title of your poll.

I'm an admin. I can update the title of this thread. When you update the title of your list, I will update the title of this thread.

He changed the intro text, not the title. The intro is also what Stephen commented on. I don't see why he would have to change the title.

Thank you, Dan.  Yes, I did just fix the text inside.  I don't think I'd need to fix the title - it merely says, "RiffTrax Style," implying that it is only in the tradition of RiffTrax's work.  There is another poll with images of Scrat from "Ice Age" with humorous captions.  It is called "Scrat Ige Age - Mystery Science Theater Style."  (Of course, MST3k is from the same people as RiffTrax.)  I don't think there will be any problems. Thank you all very much for your concern!

NarniaisAwesome,

Thank you for adding the discussion link. I really like the humorous captions you added

I misread Stephen's comments. I no longer see a problem.

Hi NarniaisAwesome,

You can make the correction to the list and ask to have your poll re-pushed. Make certain you do not delete any choice or change the order of the list. This thread is available to ask to re-push a poll. The first post in the thread provides additional details.

FAQ: Poll Authors - Re-Push Requests

In the future you would your request at the end of the re-push request thread.

I'm assuming you wish to update this poll, since this is the only poll that has gone live:
Live Poll: The Greatest Showman... RiffTrax Style!

In this case, you would post:
Title:
The Greatest Showman... RiffTrax Style!
List: https://www.imdb.com/list/ls045994417/
Poll: https://www.imdb.com/poll/HDRenTL0xLg/
Reason: Corrected a typo.

I'm posting the same information in this thread:
