As the countdown for Avengers: Infinity War winds down, fans are not only getting increasingly stir-crazy but also more creative with their fan-made content.
To pass the time before the Avengers film hits theaters, a group of young fans decided to recreate the first trailer on their own. The video, posted on Twitter, quickly became viral. It currently sits with over 60,000 likes and 37,000 retweets.

It's not that the homemade production is such a high-quality video that made it go viral but the dedication in recreating every scene in the trailer painstakingly and the commitment of every actor in the hilarious bit.
The students used every day household items as props such as plates for the sorcerers' shields and clothespins for the infinity stones — a ridiculous sight especially next to the big-budget original. Flying scenes were accomplished by carrying each other, and the actors simply wore similarly colored clothes as their Marvel counterparts.
The video was reportedly created as a project for English class.
While the fan-made video was inspired by the trailer released during the Super Bowl, an updated trailer was also released last Friday, March 16. The film, dropping on the year that marks a decade of Marvel Studios, is set to bring together a massive number of superheroes all together in one film.
'Avengers: Infinity War' Cast On Their Own Music Video
The third Avengers movie, with the supervillain Thanos at its center, could potentially feature a heartbreaking ending for a number of characters Marvel fans know and love. Of course, this hasn't stopped the cast from having fun on the set.
Apparently, it's not just students who want to put together a viral video ahead of Infinity War.
Inspired by the Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 cast who put together an epic music video titled "Inferno" last year, some of the actors and actresses of Infinity War attempted to do the same for the upcoming film. Unfortunately, it didn't work out quite as well, a report from Digital Spy said.
"We had this idea of making a music video, of this song," Anthony Mackie, who plays Falcon, recounted during the MCM London Comic-Con. "And we shot half of it, and then people realized how bad they were at dancing, and we couldn't get anyone else to dance."
"Mark Ruffalo, with polka dots and a skintight suit on, dancing," he continues. "Awful."
Avengers: Infinity War hits theaters on April 27.
