Creed wears its emotions on its sleeve — or better yet, its boxing shorts — and a reimagining of the film as a VHS release in the 1990s makes no subtle attempts to hide the movie’s message.
Mashable Watercooler remixed last year’s Creed to give the seventh film in the Rocky franchise a home-release trailer fitting of the ’90s. Complete with a VHS film filter and cheesy announcer hitting home every possible pun (Saved by the Bell reference? Naturally. And of course you can expect to hear that “it’s a real knockout”), the trailer reimagines what Creed‘s home media release would have looked like two decades ago. (Only one Rocky film actually came out in the ’90s, 1990’s Rocky V.)

Creed already received its home release — not on VHS, but on Blu-ray and DVD on March 1 after a digital release on Feb. 16 — and for a glimpse at what’s available as part of that release, check out a deleted scene from the film. A Creed sequel is eyed for 2017. Watch the remixed trailer above in all its bright, fuzzy glory above.
