Earlier this week, Sony made the debut of the full theatrical trailer for The Amazing Spider-Man damn near as ostentatious as a trailer premiere can be, dropping it at midnight after a global sizzle reel event earlier in the day. The response to the 3D reboot for Marvel's beloved webslinger has been positive, and seemingly everyone has had something to say, including the observation, made by many fans of NBC's Parks and Recreation, "Hey, the new Peter Parker kind of looks a little like Jean-Ralphio."
Luckily, in this meme-tastic modern age, it took no time for some charitable souls to create an exceedingly funny mashup that replaces Andrew Garfield's new Peter Parker with Jean-Ralphio Saperstein, the recurring character played by Ben Schwartz. Jean-Ralphio is one of my very favorite things on a show that overflows with favorite things, and the notion of Entertainment 720 co-founder wielding great power just makes me irrationally happy.
The aforementioned charitable souls are over at College Humor, so a big thanks to them for making our collective day that much brighter.
Schwartz himself, who also stars on Showtime's House of Lies, commented on this trailer via his Twitter (@rejectedjokes), too.
The Amazing Spider-Man arrives in theaters on July 3rd. Until then, while away the hours in the backseat of Jean Ralphio's pre-owned Acura Legend. Thanks to the unstoppably Tumblr Fuck Yes Jean-Ralphio.
