Anyone wondering what would happen if Archer and Eggsy from Kingsman: The Secret Service were in the same room needn't wonder any longer. Check out the hilarious exchange between the two spies in the new video below and continue reading:
As Eggsy would say, "brilliant." The short did a wonderful job of paying respect to each properties' quirks and characters while at the same time allowing the best parts of each to shine. While Eggsy got the upper hand on FX's American spy, Archer did manage to drink all his booze and find the Kingsman weapon stash on accident. Plus, he managed to not get shot, which seems like a win for Archer compared to other days.
It seems obvious that combining the world's of Kingsman: The Secret Service and Archer would fit together so well now, but why did it take so long for this to happen? At least someone came up with the idea prior to the release of Kingsman: The Golden Circle, otherwise who knows how long it would've been until this wondrous mashup made its way to the web. Could this short video to promote the film mean a larger crossover is in the works for an episode of Archer?
If it were to happen, it needs to be sooner than later. Archer creator Adam Reed indicated a year ago he has no intentions of continuing the show past Season 10, and Season 8 just ended in May. Given the episode count of the past two seasons, that possibly leaves less than 20 episodes for a possible Kingsman crossover episode, should the respective parties want to recreate the magic of this video again.
If they do, the potential episode could likely outshine the Bob's Burgers crossover with Archer that aired not that long ago. If they find a way to work Colin Firth into said theoretical episode, that likely becomes a definite and an event fans of spy comedies would not want to miss. Of course, this is all hypothetical, and there's no indication anyone involved in this amazing mashup will ever collaborate again.
Assuming it doesn't get canceled by FX for some crazy reason, Archer probably has about two seasons left and the hilariously irreverent Kingsman: The Golden Circle is due out in theaters September 22nd. Maybe the film will flip the script and crossover with a live-action Archer in the sequel? That's probably not happening, but if it did Archer's producers already have the perfect actor to play the bumbling spy. Those who may have noticed Netflix popped up a very similar show to Archer, Pacific Heat, will be interested in learning Adam Reed isn't all that miffed about it.
