If you paid any attention to this site around May 15, you know that we were nuts for Mad Max: Fury Road. But the Mad Mad Mad Mad Max Fury Road trailer is approximately 438% better than the movie.

The trailer is the creation of Ezequiel Lopez, and it combines the narration and sound from the Mad Max: Fury Road trailer, with scenes from the frenetic automotive classic from director Stanley Kramer, It’s A Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World.Mad Mad Max Fury Road Jump Ford
The trailer puts Spencer Tracy — in his next-to-last film role — in the role of Max, and it is exactly perfect.

If you’ve never seen It’s A Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World, it’s one of those automotive films in the same realm as Smokey and the Bandit, Bullitt and Duel.

The cameos in the movie are endless, featuring everyone from a four-second clip of Jerry Lewis to a barely seen slice of film with silent film madman Buster Keaton.

The car chases? EPIC.

What you never would’ve realized was that the frenetic pace of Stanley Kramer’s 1963 masterpiece would pair up perfectly with George Miller’s Mad Max: Fury Road.

The narration in the trailer meshes like a Swiss watch, and the car chase scenes go from madcap to sinister with nothing other than a change of soundtrack.

Spencer Tracy is Max, Sid Caeser is Immortan Joe, and Ethel Merman is Furiosa. Really, do you need any more convincing?

Ok then, the “What a lovely day!” scene alone is worth waiting the entire trailer for.

    San Francisco’s Cycleside Bike Rodeo made this “tribute” to Road Warrior a few years back. It’s pretty brilliant. All done on bikes.
