This Top-Gun Themed <i>Archer</i> Trailer is Beautiful

Archer returns to FX for its fifth season this January, but the brains behind the animated comedy just released a little October surprise to whet our appetites. It’s a Top Gun-themed teaser trailer for the new season, and I shouldn’t have to tell you that it’s set to Kenny Loggins’ “Danger Zone,” Archer’s favorite song and a dependable reference when he needs to infuriate Lana. Prepare for 97 glorious seconds (PHRASING!):

My favorite part? When Archer serenades Lana at the bar, he’s not following Tom Cruise’s footsteps and singing the Righteous Brothers’ “You’ve Lost That Lovin’ Feeling.” Nope—his seduction song is still “Danger Zone.”

The first three seasons of Archer can be seen on Netflix Instant.
