ADVERTISE AT BOING BOING!
Click through to Youtube and watch his Star Wars/Airwolf ones, they’re even better.
My god! You aren’t joking, either!
I ain’t getting on no star destroyer Hannibal.
YES! My day has been brightened immensely.
This is a much better A-Team mashup- Star Trek.
//The Star Wars one just didn’t feel like the A-Team intro. This does.
They’re not too bad, but this is hilarious: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=luVjkTEIoJc
Star Trek meets Monty Python….
I personally like the Magnum PI one the best. Here’s a side by side http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZEigvdbzia8
Heh heh. The Star Trek mash was perfect. Scotty as BA Baracus. Of course, even as a child, I wasn’t dumb enough to think BA stood for Bad Attitude.
I wish I could somehow send this back through time to myself in highschool. I had a friend whose two favorite things were Star Wars and The A-Team.
Pure unadulterated ’80s awesomeness. Stuff like this is what the Internet is *really* for.
An A-Team/Battlestar Galactica mashup could have Dirk Benedict interacting with both crews as Faceman and Starbuck.
This brought a big smile to my face, but the only problem is that it it credits “Harrison Ford as Han Solo.” He would only be credited as “Harrison Ford.” The “so and so actor as such and such character” gets tacked on to the end and is reserved for wacky neighbors, B.A. Baracus, Chewbacca, etc. You know, the “special” characters.
Except for the fact that George Peppard is credited as John “Hannibal” Smith in the original A-Team intro. So crediting Harrison Ford as Han Solo is in keeping.
With A-Team memories fresh in the mind, it occurs to me that this seemingly innocuous 80s show may have planted seeds in the minds of thousands of servicemen that it might be cool one day to retire from the rank and file and pursue a career in mercenary work.
Great, so we have The A-Team to blame for Blackwater. Yet another reason why the 80’s sucked.
Marvelous. They’re all first rate! Waiting for the Magnum PI/Star Wars mashup…
I posted the Magnum PI one up a few spots. Here it is again http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZEigvdbzia8
Ha! I think Magnum PI wins.
