In a review of Stacey Abbott’s Celluloid Vampires (U of Texas P, 2007), Kapka Kassabova writes:

This promising motto (“A little less ritual and a little more fun”) comes to courtesy of Spike, the peroxide-blond punk rock vampire in the 1990s American television series Buffy the Vampire Slayer. Spike symbolizes the New-Age vampire in modern cinema: young, American, anti-establishment, ironic, and allergic to boredom.

American, eh?
