I don’t want to alarm anyone, but this might be the best mashup video of all time. The opening title card sets the scene: "There is a place or fictional characters meet. Outside of time, outside of all logic. This place is known as Hell’s Club." Watch the mashup below.
Antonio Maria Da Silva of YouTube has created some dynamite mashups in the past, including his "Bruce Lee vs. Bruce Lee," "Terminator vs. RoboCop," and "Fight of the Universe," the latter of which inserts Neo from The Matrix, Batman from Christopher Nolan's films, Spider-Man from Sam Raimi’s films, and the like into one epic movie battle. This time around, Silva has smooshed together some of our favorite movie characters so that they all interact in a mystical dance club called Hell’s Club.
It’s all strategically centered around the futuristic alien bar from Star Wars: Episode II - Attack of the Clones. Obi-Wan Kenobi and Anakin head into the space-age discotheque to weed out a pesky bounty hunter. Little do they know that this bar — which, again, exists outside of time and logic — is one trippy mamma jamma.
Among the characters that Silva so seamlessly inserts into this world are Wesley Snipes’ Blade, Peter Weller’s RoboCop, Cameron Diaz’s Natalie from Charlie’s Angels, and Al Pacino’s Carlito from Carlito’s Way. However, the club turns into a mind warp as Ewan McGregor’s Mark Renton from Trainspotting looks across the dance floor to see himself as Obi-Wan. Carlito has the same reaction when he sees himself as Tony Montana from Scarface, and Tom Cruise’s Vincent from Collateral encounters himself as Brian Flanagan from Cocktail.
We told you it was a mind warp!
The action escalates, though, after the two Jedi knights cart away the bounty hunter, which all of the characters pause for a moment to watch. They soon get back to business as John Travolta’s Tony Manero from Saturday Night Fever starts boogie oogie-ing to the music. But, again, things go awry when Arnold Schwarzenegger’s Terminator shows up to pop some caps in Montana’s head. A gun fight ensues, forcing the likes of Keanu Reeve’s John Wick and Neo ("Whoa!") to emerge from the shadows. Of course, Blade gets the hell out of there, while Doug Bradley’s Pinhead stands off to the side laughing over the chaos.
The nearly 10-minute-long video is definitely worth a watch if you have the time to spare. Even the music, which Silva remixed for certain moments, is spot on; and the inclusion of various characters, including Gary Oldman’s dreadlocked Drexl Spivey from True Romance and Mike Myers’ Austin Powers, appeared effortless.
