Brilliant Captain America: Winter Soldier 80s VHS Trailer

Everything was better in the 80s. Freddie Mercury was still alive, Eddie Murphy was funny, and all action movies came with an obligatory ridiculously cheesy trailer.

Nowawdays, everything is slick and grandiose, but we miss the old days - and, evidently, so does YouTube user ChiefBrodyRules. He's created this astonishingly brilliant mock VHS-style 80s trailer for Captain America: Winter Soldier, which came out earlier this year. It took five weeks to edit and it's worth every second.

There's tape glitches, amazing 80s synth-funk backings, freeze-frames, a saccharine mid-section and loads of macho posing.

Watch immedately and then dig out your old 80s action movies for another viewing.
