Super Smash Bros. Ultimate's new commercial is already a meme: It goes with everything from Queen to Street Fighter 4's 'Indestructible'

What have you done, Nintendo?...

Nintendo recently released a new commercial / trailer for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate that has already reached meme status. Apparently, the new ad goes with every song you can think of.

The trailer sees the big Super Smash Bros. Ultimate banner featuring every character on the launch roster come to life and play out in an exciting clash of fighters. For some reason, Nintendo released the trailer with no music backing up the battle, though it does have sound effects.

This has made it possible for fans and memesters to work their magic. Simply dropping a song over the new commercial adds a different tone and energy to it, and apparently every song works well with it.

There are a ton of these edits floating around on Twitter, but some of our favorites included Queen's "Don't Stop Me Now," the "Indestructible" theme song of Street Fighter 4, Carly Rae Jepsen's "Call Me Maybe," and even music from Dragon Ball Super.

This isn't the first time we've seen people add their own tracks to a big Super Smash Bros. Ultimate cinematic. Nintendo's "World of Light" trailer featured every character on the Smash Bros. Ultimate roster (and more) being turned into spirits in a Thanos-style destructive sequence, and one fan added Led Zeppelin's "Immigrant Song" to the trailer for ultimate hype.

We'll likely be seeing a lot more of these edits hit the internet going forward, but I'm waiting for someone to add the Yu Yu Hakusho theme song to the trailer... Make it happen, people!
