Let this ultra-90s throwback trailer overtake you with the sweet sensation of analog tape insertion…
Far be it for Marvel to ignore any potential channel of monetized distribution, a trailer has just arrived heralding perhaps the finest entry in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (that’d be Captain America: Winter Soldier for you Guardians-lovin’ philistines) making its long-awaited debut on the wonderful format of analog tape. Pop this in your VCRs and smoke it!
Okay, if it’s not abundantly clear, this is but a parody of those old ass action trailers that used to run before VHS tapes you’d rent from place with names like “Blockbuster” and “Hollywood Video.” Saying I could watch a theatrical length version of the reference material is easy, considering 90% of the footage is derived from Winter Soldier and Robocop, but the send-up is pretty much a billion percent accurate to those found on anything remotely close to a Golan-Globus production. Don’t know what I’m talking about? Then you damn sure should peep this trailer for an upcoming documentary about the best/failingest production company in the known universe!

Got to love the synthesizer, makes everything “retro-y”.
partially courtesy of excellent band Power Glove. probably most famous for scoring Blood Dragon.
That Cap trailer was mad dope but it was missing one thing; Rody Rod Pipper! I was waiting for one “They Live” clip, but they made up for it with Machete star Jef Fahey. As a child of the 80s they nailed it with this trailer. Reminded me of snap bracelets and Out of this world (show) so mission accomplished.
That was cool cap trailer, and that documentary trailer looks very interesting.
I was smiling the whole way through. whoever cut this together, I’m subscribing. been meaning to check out that Cannon documentary
The use of the Scott Pilgrim line was genius!
This is brilliant. I love it!
This is really damn cool
