Is this the best possible “Archer” promo video of all time? “Archer,” FX’s incredibly bawdy, surprisingly esoteric and always funny spy comedy, will begin its fifth season in January.
To commemorate the impending return of Adam Reed’s creation, FX has released the video below, which is basically a beat-by-beat remake of the Tony Scott-directed video for Kenny Loggins’ “Danger Zone,” with all the “Archer” characters. Archer is, naturally, Maverick — here, with call sign “Duchess” — while Lana is Charlie, Cyril is Goose, Krieger is… well, let’s not spoil it. It’s terrific.
