The Honest Trailer for Black Panther Is Here, and Now I Have That Toto Song Stuck in My Head

We knew it was coming, and we’re so happy it did. Honest Trailers finally tackled one of our favorite movies of the year: Black Panther.

This is one of those movies that the folks at Honest Trailers seem to have had a hard time making fun of, because it was just a well-made, well-acted film. But, as they point out …” it’s a Marvel movie,” so there’s still plenty to poke fun at.

Like, for example, the fact that T’Challa/Black Panther is, like, the one hero in the MCU who refuses to crack wise. Like, there is zero banter. Even when everyone else is bantering around him:

If this were a DC movie, I’d be like “Why so serious?” But I guess they just let you do you in the MCU.

Then there’s the fact that Wakanda sat out dictators, world wars, and alien invasions only to finally join the world community … to get involved in Bay Area real estate:

And then there’s having Michael B. Jordan’s Killmonger being one of the best villains in the MCU in large part because he gets T’Challa to see that Wakanda cannot ignore the world around it. You know, the same point Nakia was making to him from the beginning of the movie without killing a bunch of people:

But sure, when a dude says it…

And as always, the video ends with the film’s fake cast, and I died laughing at this (you must be this talland this oldto get this joke):

Winston Duke as M'Baku in Marvel's 'Black Panther'

And then there’s this:

And now I have that Toto song stuck in my head. Thanks, Honest Trailers. Thanks a lot.
