Between the James Brown musical number and Paulie's robotic romance, Rocky IV is already one of the #Rocky franchise's most over-the-top sequels. Somehow, the film seems even more ridiculous once you give it a Mike Tyson's Punch-Out!! makeover.
The YouTube channel Hat-Loving Gamer recently reimagined the '80s #boxing flick using the graphics of the classic NES game, and the results were pretty awesome. Ivan Drago, the iconic character originally played by #Expendables and #Arrow star Dolph Lundgren, gets the feature treatment in this parody video, which includes a humorous recreation of Sylvester Stallone's snowy training montage.
As nice little Easter eggs for gamers and fight fans, Tetris, Mike Tyson, and the heavyweight #Pokemon Snorlax also have cameos in the hilarious video.
If you got a kick out of the Rocky IV Punch Out parody, another YouTube user created a similar video for the possible matchup between Irish #UFC superstar Conor McGregor and retired boxing champion Floyd Mayweather Jr.
