Stuntman Danny Bortfeld recreates Mortal Kombat 11's character select animations using any item he could find around the house

Danny Bortfeld has been making his case as to why he's perfect to portray Johnny Cage in the Mortal Kombat movie sequel for quite a while now, and he definitely knows how to improvise and get creative.

The stuntman and actor recently decided to recreate a variety of Mortal Kombat 11's character select animations with costumes he seemingly put together with anything he could find around the house, which managed to earn props from series co-creator Ed Boon.

Bortfeld of course already has a Johnny Cage cosplay prepped and ready when needed, but he had to use his imagination to put together more of the rest of the cast.

Instead of ice axes and razor-sharp blades, he busts out some fuzzy pens and a butter knife for Sub-Zero, Sonya has a mop for hair and Kano looks ready to cook you a nice meal with his wooden spoon.

We weren't prepared for his interpretation of Kitana, however, considering Bortfeld appears to have borrowed some of his wife's clothes while flipping a broken umbrella around.

You can't deny his form and commitment to the bit though, so maybe he is the closest thing to a real world Johnny Cage around.
