Creed has been praised for breathing contemporary life into the Rocky franchise thanks to the introduction of fresh, fully realized new characters like Michael B. Jordan’s Donnie Johnson and Tessa Thompson’s aspiring musician Bianca.

But Mashable wonders: What would Creed look like if it weren’t contemporary or fresh and, instead, was an early ’90s home video release? Watch the results above.

This deliberately retro trailer remix answers that question, complete with pun-filled voice-over narration (“But to learn what boxing is all a-BOUT…”), a terrible drum machine-dominated soundtrack, and a Creed font that appears to have been ripped directly from the ragged VHS case of a Steven Seagal movie.

Ah, the ’90s. We can’t get ’em back. And that’s probably a good thing.
