Like me, right now you’re probably saying to yourself, “Of course!  Haha!  This totally makes sense!”  This movie trailer mashup is exactly why I am incredibly thankful for living in the web culture age where a lot of people have a lot of time on their hands.  Just think about it.  Both of these movies have similar plot points so this mashup is just a natural, pop cultural progression.  I love Albert Brooks’ character, Marlin, in ‘Finding Nemo’, but what if the film’s father character was replaced by Liam Neeson’s character from ‘Taken’?!

Lastly, this movie mashup obviously leaves me wondering how this can be done with other films…
