Just when you thought the internet had squeezed every last drop of enjoyment out of the 'Chris Pratt raps Eminem's Forgot About Dre' video, an inevitable (but very slickly executed) sync with the original comes along that is really quite brilliant.

Kicking off with Eminem looking down at a picture of Parks and Rec's Andy Dwyer in a newspaper in an edited version of the original music video, the clip then cuts to Pratt's impromptu verse on Shade45 radio, and the two blend pretty seamlessly.

The highlight comes at 0:34 with the drop-aspect-ratio-and-revert-to-normal-hue-before-switching-blue-filter-back-on thing.

Pratt has become an A-lister virtually overnight thanks to his lead role in Guardians of the Galaxy, and his stock is only set to get bigger when he appears in one of next summer's biggest blockbusters, Jurassic World.

Aside from showing a nascent talent for rap, the actor also joked about the recent Justin Bieber and Orlando Bloom scuffle during the radio interview, declaring: "How embarrassing to get punched by Orlando Bloom…I'd rather get farted on by David Hasselhoff than punched by Orlando Bloom."
