If there’s one rule of the Internet, it’s that the year’s most massively viral hit single will yield an innumerable number of geek parodies. For 2015, that song is undoubtedly “Uptown Funk.” Naturally, we’ve already witnessed plenty of riffs, including the Family Guy cover and the Voldemort Funk.

Now, Screen Team, the YouTube duo who brought you “Gandalf Style” and an Avengers edition of One Direction‘s “What Makes You Beautiful” have pulled out stops for what is, in retrospect, clearly the parody we were waiting for all along. 

That’s right. Hang on to your helmets—it’s Ultron Funk.

The creators of this catchy parody are real-life engaged couple, Angie Griffin and Chad Nikolaus. Incredibly, the pair created the entire video at home in their living room, using a green screen to get that Asgard/Los Angeles/New York City feel.

In all honesty, given how unwieldy many fans have found the actual Age of Ultron to be, we’d rather Joss Whedon had written a two-hour ensemble dance musical with some occasional breaks for superhero fights.
