Parting Shot: IRL ‘Avengers’ Chase Loki, Boogie Down, Obey Traffic Laws [Video]
The Avengers was a box office hit for showcasing some entertaining battles between Captain America, Iron Man, Thor, the Hulk and Loki, but if their assorted paths of destruction had occurred in the real world, people would probably totally hate everyone involved for trashing their neighborhoods. The Avengers In Real Life! switches up this scenario by replacing fisticuffs with casual jogging, dancing and traffic law obedience – you know, stuff that doesn’t involve a city getting destroyed by aliens. Created by a YouTube team who call themselves 2 Asian Dudes, the comedic short sees Halloween-costumed stand-ins of the core male members of The Avengers movie team pursue (a very creepy-looking) Loki around an outdoor shopping center, among other locations, in Melbourne, Australia. The lighthearted chase is sprinkled with boogie-down breaks and other sight gags, which seem to delight onlooking adults and children. It’s just a shame Black Widow, Hawkeye, Nick Fury, Maria Hill and…*sob*… Agent Coulson couldn’t join them. You can check out the adventure after the cut.
