Good, bad or something in between? It’s hard to say exactly where this shot-for-shot “homemade” remake of a recent “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2” trailer falls, but it’s awesome nonetheless.

The video, from CineFix (the “8-Bit Cinema” guys), is exactly what it sounds like — one of the recent “Guardians” trailers remade on the cheap. It’s a lot like “Sweding” from Michel Gondry’s “Be Kind, Rewind,” except it has actual, professional editing. I have to say, I laughed out loud, literally, when the John Travolta action figure flew up at the screen.

Somehow, a stuffed raccoon is almost identically adorable to the CGI Rocket Raccoon from the actual “Guardians” films.

Skeptical about the shot for shot claim? Check out the video below and judge for yourself.

“Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2” hits theaters on May 5.
