Using just the lyrics, man turns Smash Mouth’s ‘All Star’ into an action movie

If every medium of artistry was assigned a meme, Smash Mouth’s “All Star” would be undoubtedly considered music’s meme. The song has far outlasted its Mystery Men soundtrack. Viral artists like Jon Sudano have shown the world that “All Star” juxtaposed with anything equals something seriously amazing.

Sudano’s videos that mashup songs across the meme spectrum with one of Smash Mouth’s biggest singles has inspired yet another wild pairing: “All Star” and an action film.

Matt Bray was laid up with a foot injury when he turned the lyrics of “All Star” into the trailer of what looks like the Blockbuster event of the season.

The cop film includes danger, mystery, and a series of murders with victims who all share one attribute: Their finger and their thumb in the shape of an L. And it’s even got the band’s seal of approval.

Hey Matt, you’re an all star.
