In an adorable homage to the totally badass elevator scene from Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Community did a paintballirific take on the moment. In their latest episode of the Yahoo! Screen iteration of the series, Dean Pelton did his best Steve Rodgers — of course.
No, he may not have jumped out of the elevator by smashing its glass (logistically such nonsense is impossible at Greendale on a structural level), but he did get himself into quite the kerfuffle with a bunch of baddies while in the midst of a paintball challenge. A recurring bit for the series, paintball episodes of Community are a true joy for any and everyone who loves the meta-reality and quipping referential madness it does so well.
Besides, who wouldn’t want to go full-Rambo with a bunch of paintball guns at their old college, running around with wild abandon and total glee, making witty, hilariously meta quips all the while?
For reference we’re including the Cap version below:
UUUUUGH what we wouldn’t give for a little Dean-on-Steve action.
Which action sequence would you like to see Community paintballify next? Let us hear it in the comments.
