'Iron Can' Is A Parody Trailer Where Iron Man Is An Actual Iron

Superheroes don't get more practical than Iron Can, which takes the ironing man jokes that everyone loves to make and takes them to their logical conclusion with a fully-realised mock trailer.

It's been put together by Anders Wotzke and Mike Nixon of Moviedex who you can tell have spent a lot of time making it. Two years in fact, where they discovered, "It turns out making a household iron fly and blow stuff up is really, really hard when you have no idea what the hell you’re doing."

But they persevered, all for a well-worn but very funny joke about a man called Tony Starch removing bad guys from the earth and creases from people's garments.

From the YouTube page:

From the moronic mind of BATFAN comes the motion picture event of the afternoon: IRON CAN, the incredible true story of the founding member of the legendary Appliance Alliance™.

Ultra Downy Jr. (now with floral scent!) stars as Tony Starch: Genius. Billionaire. Philanthropist. Can of fabric softener.

After being pressured into revealing his secret identity, Starch attracts the attention of the nefarious Fabrice Crimp, leader of a cult of creased cottons who believes that since the world isn’t flat, nothing should be.

Only Iron Can has the power-setting to flatten Fabrice and put an end to his ruffled reign of terror. No one straight is safe. Everyone bent is probably ok for once. The fate of looking presentable in a button-up rests on the nozzle of one can.

But even the greatest of heroes eventually run out of steam…
