Fans in splits after 'The Boys' Season 3 Episode 6 takes a dig at Gal Gadot's 'Imagine'
Celebrities sang 'Imagine' amid the coronavirus crisis, and the show pretty much made it a parody much to the fans' delight
Gal Gadot's response is perhaps what social media awaits after 'The Boys' Season 3 Episode 6 'Herogasm' parodied John Lennon's 'Imagine' with a slew of celebrities. Kumail Nanjiani was one of the faces featured much to the delight of the show's fans. The 'Wonder Woman' star's Imagine video was originally supposed to be done as a mark of solidarity, but the pandemic Instagram video came under harsh criticism. Despite racking up more than 10.5 million views, the clip was labeled 'cringe.' However, the Amazon Prime show now decided to bring back some memories that people would love to forget.
The episode opened up with The Deep (Chace Crawford) starting off with the classic cover and a string of celebs joining in. This set the tone for 'Herogasm', an episode that gave the fans a superhero orgy, a showdown between Soldier Boy (Jensen Ackles) and Homelander (Antony Starr), and some character deaths and departures among other things.
"Not the #TheBoys starting with the parody of Gal Gadot's Imagine video. I was howling #Herogasm," one of the fans wrote. "Oh noooo, not that Imagine crap from the beginning of the Rona! Of course The Deep starts it. Have we really been in this long enough to start referencing the cringe already? #Herogasm #TheBoys #TheBoysTV," a tweet read. "#theboys #herogasm spoilers . . . . . THAT VIDEO OF DEEP AND THE OTHERS SINGING IMAGINE HAS ME ON THE FLOOR IM WHEEZINGD DKEKSND," a comment said.
"The fact that they made fun of the cringe "Imagine" compilation in episode 6 had me rolling lmfao #TheBoys #Herogasm," a fan tweeted. "OK I was told that #Herogasm was going to be disturbing but truly, recreating the Imagine sing-along is more horrifying than I ever could've imagined," another seconded. "not the boys making fun of the gal gadot imagine video they are so unserious #theboys #herogasm," a comment said.
