I’ll admit, I have a guilty pleasure. I love looking up mashed up trailers that take the style of an already-amazing trailer and cut another film in said style. Some of my favorites include Captain America: Civil War cut like the Mission: Impossible – Fallout trailer and Avengers: Infinity War cut like the Godzilla: King of the Monsters trailer from last year’s San Diego Comic-Con. Now, I have a brand new one I’m excited to share with all of you.

In recent weeks, one of the more exciting trailers to hit came in the form of Todd Phillips’ Joker. The movie was always on my radar as a potentially-unique movie, but the trailer, featuring Jimmy Durante’s cover of the Nat King Cole song “Smile,” which was fittingly used in the classic Charlie Chaplin film Modern Times. Its application to the iconic Batman villain gave the flick an extra air of quality many of us weren’t expecting.

As you can see above, YouTuber Mr. Kresphus opted to apply this to last year’s Avengers: Infinity War, which is mostly told from the perspective of the big bad, Thanos. Like Joker, it shows a great deal of ironic dark imagery that’s at odds with the lighthearted tone of the song. It’s not perfect, and some of the early parts are a bit “blah,” in my opinion, but less than halfway through, it really starts to hit its stride.

Just a few more days, folks until we see this story end in Avengers: Endgame. What do you think of this fan trailer? Let us know down below!
