Yes, Godzilla: King of the Monstersā€™ Comic-Con trailer was incredibleā€”haunting and epic, and jam-packed with all the spine-tingling usage of ā€œClair de Luneā€ a human could ever possibly need in a giant monster movie. But you canā€™t help but crack a smile at this rendition that turns said trailer into an old-school Toho kaiju epic.

From the opening classic Godzilla skreech to the clipped Japanese narrator, even in the dodgy use of audio clips from classic Godzilla films spliced over English-speaking actorsā€”thereā€™s a hokey charm to giving these modern, 2018 visuals a ā€˜60s Tokusatsu twist. And this fanmade trailer by YouTuber ē‰¹ę”å‰µä½œčÆē›Ÿē‰¹č£½éšŠ has hokey charm in spades.

Charles Dance saying ā€œNani!?ā€ instead of ā€œLong live the Kingā€ is just icing on the cake, really.
