This Fourth of July, I suggest you get your family all huddled in the house (or, let’s face it, studio apartment), draw the curtains, and watch this Captain America trailer on a loop. Over and over and over until you are ready to drop-kick the next German you meet.
Before you argue with me, claiming “the Fourth of July is about being outside” or “I lost my job and can’t afford an Internet connection anymore,” check out the trailer and try to say with a straight face that you don’t love America 6% more than before you watched it.
The theatrical trailer plays up the characteristics (beyond the physique) that make Captain America “Cap’n ‘merica.” Namely, his eagerness to jump on grenades, and not in a metaphorical sense. Balancing out the more emotional qualities here is a catchy little number by Tool, that reminds us that Captain America is a complete and total badass. But if you needed reminding of that, you’re probably a communist.
