- Social media users have compared the baseball scenes in “Twilight” and “Succession” for years.
- On Wednesday, a “Succession” fan edited the HBO scene to feature audio from the 2008 movie.
- Watch the social media user’s compilation below.
On the surface, “Twilight” and “Succession” don’t have much in common.
“Twilight” is a movie centered around an over-the-top supernatural romance, while “Succession” is an Emmy-winning HBO series about an ultra-wealthy family’s battle for control of a media conglomerate.
But set aside the differences in genres, plotlines, and characters, and you’ll land on one uncanny parallel: They both feature scenes in which the ensemble cast partakes in America’s favorite pastime.
On Wednesday, a social media user, @kendilfroy on Twitter, went so far as to share an edited compilation of the two scenes, demonstrating just how in sync they really are.
In the video, the “Succession” baseball scene from the series’ 2018 premiere is set to the “Twilight” audio (of course, Muse’s “Supermassive Black Hole” plays in the background) and overlain with the movie’s signature blue-tinted filter.
As a result, the corporate executives bear a striking resemblance to the on-screen vampires featured in the 2008 scene.
The user called the clip, “twilight (2008) extended baseball scene.”
Fellow fans rejoiced at the unexpected crossover on Twitter, with one applauding the video as a “masterpiece.” At the time of this article’s publication, the video has amassed over 1,000 retweets and 5,000 likes on the platform.

Some pointed to the similarities in setting, since both scenes take place on secluded grounds. Others remarked that baseball games are long-standing traditions for both of the large, powerful families.

It’s been years since both scenes first premiered to audiences. However, the cult-favorite film and the critically-acclaimed series are at the top of fans’ minds as “Twilight” recently became available on Netflix, while “Succession” is in the midst of its highly anticipated third season.
