If you spent any time on Facebook yesterday, and statistics say that you did, you know that yesterday was Friend’s Day. A holiday that you didn’t even know existed until Facebook informed you about it. The site was nice enough to put a video together for each of us to help us remember how awesome our friends are. While a silly little diversion, it was probably a fun little moment for all of us. Well, almost all of us. There’s, at least, one guy for whom Friend’s Day was a rough reminder of the friendships he used to have, Captain America. Check out his Friend's Day video.

You know what’s coming when the video starts but it’s still hilarious, and a little bit painful, to see it go down. It’s actually a pretty entertaining summary of many of the major moments from the MCU as if you were viewing them on Steve Rogers' Facebook page. Also while unintentional, it also seems to mimic the actual Facebook video by picking a few images that seem completely random. Why is there so much emphasis on Thor here? Those two characters are not particularly close, and the character isn’t even going to appear in Captain America: Civil War. Meanwhile, Black Widow, who is much closer with Steve Rogers, only gets a couple of images where she’s either sharing the photo with others or nearly unrecognizable. Of course, she and Captain America are also going to end up on opposite sides in the coming movie, so maybe Steve removed many of his pictures of her from his page.

The movie is called Civil War and as such, it is going to put several of our favorite characters within the MCU on opposite sides. As with the conclusion of the video, the major division is between Cap and Iron Man. The movie will deal with restrictions that governments wish to put on the Avengers and other heroes as a result of the events of Avengers: Age of Ultron. Captain America, being the lover of freedom that he is, does not accept the situation, while Tony Stark believes that being willing to accept this situation is what separates them from those they fight against. It’s a situation where both characters will likely have good points and allegiances will be chosen by most of the characters that we know, as well as a few new faces.

Sides will likely be chosen by fans as well when Captain America: Civil War hits theaters this May. What did you think of Cap’s Friend’s Day video? Was it any better than yours?
