THOR: RAGNAROK Mashed Up with FRAGGLE ROCK is Celestial Silliness

By now, chances are you have witnessed the awesomeness that is the Thor: Ragnarok trailer, right? If not, I suggest you do yourself a favor and watch it immediately, as it is the pure fun antidote to all the negativity going on in the world right now. Director Taika Waititi’s third entry in the adventures of everyone’s favorite buff Norse God of Thunder channels all the right color and energy from the Guardians of the Galaxy movies, and then manages to add the Hulk, Jeff Goldblum, and one super fierce looking Cate Blanchett. What’s not to love??

So how do you make an awesome trailer like this one even more fun? You add some Jim Henson goodness into the mix, that’s how. Nope, I’m not talking about the Muppets or any of the Sesame Street denizens, I’m talking about the Fraggles from Fraggle Rock. This week on  Jimmy Kimmel Live!, the talk show host debuted a mash-up trailer that combines the Nine Realms with the realms of Gorg’s garden. Ladies and gentlemen, I present Thor: Fraggle Rock!

In this version of the epic Marvel Studios adventure, it appears one of the Fraggles is the one who begins the fall of Asgard, accidentally bringing about “death and pestilence” upon Odin’s kingdom. And as the end of all things draws near, we prepare to see Chris Hemsworth’s Thor do battle with….the Incredible Hulk Junior Gorg! Unfortunately, we don’t see if Thor ends up battling the Trash Heap too. Now wouldn’t that be something to see?

Was the inclusion of Fraggles the only thing that could have possibly improved the already awesome Thor: Ragnarok trailer? Let us know what you think down below in the comments.
