Parody trailer reimagines “Call Me By Your Name” as an ’80s teen rom-com

The ’80s was a decade known for its campy teen rom-coms. Fast Times At Ridgemont High, The Breakfast Club, Sixteen Candles, Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, to name a few.

Well, now we can throw Call Me By Your Name into that mix. A new parody trailer reimagines the 2017 indy sleeper hit as an ’80s teen blockbuster produced by Tri Star Pictures.

The trailer is the work of Malcolm Edits, who explains: “Call Me By Your Name was probably my favorite movie this year, and as a gay guy, I kept thinking about how much I wish we’d had a movie like it when I was growing up. But then I realized that it’s probably better that it wasn’t made back then.”
