Team Unicorn: Sexy and Geeky Girls, They Do Exist!
The tagline on the Team Unicorn Facebook page pretty much sums it up: 'Geek Girls: Like unicorns, we're not supposed to exist.'
Rileah Vanderbilt, Clare Grant, Milynn Sarley and Michele Boyd are beautiful and talented women who are also proud to be nerds! Their first video, "G33K and G4M3R GIRLS", a parody of Katy Perry's "California Gurls" rocked the geek online community, with guest stars like Seth Green, Stan Lee and Katee Sackhoff. If you haven't seen it, watch it now before you read our interview below.
Vanderbilt explains that she met all three girls at different times on her various jobs all over Los Angeles. She decided to unite all four of them together to bond under their common, geek interests. Although, Grant reveals the real story behind Team Unicorn.
What is the super hero origin story of Team Unicorn?
Clare Grant: Full disclosure, we haven't a 100% sealed in these details. Rileah grew up alone and without parents. She had a super hard life and had to overcome all the obstacles to become awesome [like Batman]. Then this person died and in their will they left Rileah everything! Super billions-millions! She goes to live in her new castle/fortress. She realized she didn't just inherit all these stuff but she also inherited a team of super people. We all have super powers and Rileah becomes the leader of our super hero gang.
Milynn Sarley: We're still working out powers and the rest of the origin story...
A question inspired by SuperHarmony, which super hero or super villain would each of you want to go on a date with? What would be your ideal date night with them?
Michele & Clare Grant: Gambit! [laughter]
Rileah Vanderbilt: He'll probably be a really bad date, but Batman, just because I have fantasies revolving around him. [laughs] There's something about a moody guy. The date would probably suck. It would be all about, "My family died." I don't know what we would do, maybe we would go somewhere fun... maybe a comedy club.
CG: I'd want to see the romantic side of Gambit. I want him to take me to a nice restaurant that I know he can't afford but he's doing it just because he thinks he can get me into bed. I want him to speak French to me! I would say, "Oh my coffee went cold because we were having such a great conversation!" Then he'd say, "I got that." Then he'd warm it up with his powers and I'd say, "Oh, Gambit!"
