We’re living in this weird era of pop culture association. One fan looks at a trailer for a film, associates it with some other film or television show and then – boom – a trailer mash-up is born. Take Wonka: Legacy, for instance. I don’t get that one, personally, but I do understand the latest mash-up trailer that was sent our way vying for attention.
It’s sort of amusing, so I thought I’d share.
YouTube user Leedle combined the audio for Guillermo del Toro’s Pacific Rim with the visuals of the Powerpuff Girls cartoon, so you’ve got these cutsey images while Charlie Hunnam growls about a global threat and fighting back. But it works. You’ll see why. Video’s inside.
