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!
