Nothing brings family and miscellaneous friends together like a ’90s sitcom could. Sitcoms basically had magical powers. We could all be busy doing something important — like homework, making dinner, playing outside, trying to beat the final level in Super Mario Bros. for the 800th time — and as soon as we heard the first beat of our favorite sitcom’s theme song, we bolted into the living room for a some primetime TV action.

So these days, when someone creates something almost as magical and nostalgic as a ’90s TV shows and their theme songs, we pay attention. Because nostalgia is a force we just can’t fight.

In their latest episode of “Trailer Mix,” Mashable created the most perfect scenario — E.T. as a ’90s sitcom set to the Perfect Strangers theme song. Yes times a million.

The fake E.T. trailer has a much lighter and happier tone than the original movie. And it’s genius.

Check out the show we soooo wish was real: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=
