Despite being one of Netflix’s allegedly most popular programs, critics weren’t too fond of Fuller House when it premiered back in February. Sure, maybe Carly Rae Jespen’s cover of the original theme song — Jesse Frederick’s “Everywhere You Look” — ain’t half bad, but the same can’t be said of the show itself. Then again, Jespen’s rendition can never top its predecessor. Listening to its familiar instrumentation will bring a smile to the faces of ’80s kids everywhere, and even calm most tumultuous family gatherings.
Maybe that’s why YouTuber Zach’s decision to recut footage from The Avengers and Avengers: Age of Ultron, and overlay Frederick’s original performance, feels so right. He even posted a second video, offering a side-by-side comparison between his cut and the original Full House intro. It works pretty well, as both Marvel films portrayed the creation and dissolution of their titular superhero team franchise — all of which bears the hallmarks of most classic family sitcoms from the ’80s and ’90s. Except, of course, without all the superpowers, aliens, infinity stones, and whatnot.
Either way it makes for yet another fun mashup between the current onslaught of superhero movies and television. It seems pretty much any Marvel or DC property these days can go hand in hand with shows like Full House (and not Fuller House, obviously), Friends and the like. So if that’s the case, then Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 had better get in touch with its Family Ties.
