The Guardians of the Galaxy released a perfectly cheeky and campy music video
In a cinematic universe as (relatively) fun and light as the Marvel Cinematic Universe, the Guardians of the Galaxy films have established itself as *the* campiest and most fun films of all. In addition to being known as the fun, quirky cousin to the Avengers — whom they’ll be teaming up with in the upcoming Avengers: Infinity War film — GotG is also known for it’s love of music from the ’70s and ’80s.
Seeing how Guardians Vol. 2 is being released on digital (August 8th!!) and DVD and Blu-Ray (August 22nd!!), director James Gunn and the cast celebrated in the most on-brand and extra way possible: A hilarious retro music video for “Guardians Inferno,” which plays during the end credits of the hit film.
It may be the most ridiculous (but spectacular) thing you’ll see all day:
Featuring cameos from basically all the film’s stars — including Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Karen Gillan, Dave Bautista, Michael Rooker, Sean Gunn, Pom Klementieff, and David Hasselhoff, who is featured on the song — alongside Jimmy Kimmel Live!’s Guillermo, Gunn himself and Marvel legend Stan Lee, the David Yarovesky-directed music video is full of the weirdness that makes us love GotG so much.
While the ’70s-style music video didn’t give us any insight into what to expect from GotG Vol. 3 — which Gunn is returning to write and direct — or Infinity War, which will see the Guardians team up with all our other favorite Marvel characters, it will certainly hold us over for at least a little bit.
The only thing it’s missing is a Groot cameo, otherwise it would have been perfect.
