Batman V. Superman: Dawn of Justice meets It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia in mash-up video

The upcoming superhero brawl in Batman V. Superman: Dawn in Justice may very well be the most angsty crossover in comic-book movie history, so anything that adds a little levity to the impending contest to determine which DC Comics superhero can be more emo is appreciated.

Cue “DayMan V NightMan: Dawn of Troll Toll,” a video mash-up of the weird, wonderful rock opera “The Nightman Cometh” from It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia and the trailer for Batman V. Superman: Dawn of Justice.

Uploaded by YouTube user Albert Lopez, the video layers the musical stylings of the It’s Always Sunny crew and their rock opera about a boy’s battle against a supervillain who visits him in the middle of the night to take his innocence over the Batman V. Superman footage that debuted during Comic-Con International in San Diego earlier this month. And in a bit of surprising synchronicity, the lyrics match up pretty well with what’s happening in the footage.

For those who might not be It’s Always Sunny fans, the episode featuring the rock opera unfolds during the fourth season of the popular — and wildly irreverent — comedy series, and involves the eternally naive Charlie Kelly (Charlie Day) attempting to stage a play based on his bizarre stories about the imaginary entities “Nightman” and “Dayman” in order to impress a girl he met. (The lyrics and dialogue from the entire production are available at the It’s Always Sunny wiki.)

After reminding you how seriously the characters take themselves in the early part of the trailer mash-up, “The Nightman Cometh” parody kicks in around the :26 mark in the video, with Charlie singing about Nightman over scenes of Ben Affleck as Batman.

They took you, Nightman
And you don’t belong to them
They left me in a world of darkness
Without your sexy hands
And I miss you, Nightman
So bad…

The rest of the mash-up video features some ridiculously well-timed lyrics, including a scene from Man Of Steel in which (Spoiler Alert) Superman snaps the neck of General Zod as the song describes Dayman as “a Master of Karate … and Friendship For Everyone.”

Batman V. Superman: Dawn of Justice hits theaters March 25, 2016 — but you’re probably not alone if you’d like to see a big-screen version of DayMan V NightMan: Dawn of Troll Toll just as much as Zack Snyder’s dark superhero melee movie.
