How One Joke In A Film Can Lead To Pure Gold

Back when Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 came out, there was a joke about Yondu being the famous Mary Poppins we all know and adore. It was hilarious because he had no idea who Mary Poppins was, let alone that she was a woman.

This simple joke spawned the creation of this beautiful piece of editing magic. Hishe, a YouTube channel known for creating famous “How it should have ended” videos released this mash-up of Yondu in Mary Poppins, to take things a step further as the internet often does. The result is a seamless gag that left me warm inside.

How great is it that people are able to run with a simple joke made in a movie and create more humorous videos and ideas out of it? That’s what I love about the internet.
