Harrison Ford’s globe-hopping archaeologist encountered any number of completely impossible, frankly ludicrous obstacles over the course of four Indiana Jones films. But apparently, even that fantasy-based series had its logical threshold. When Indy survived a nuclear blast by hiding himself in an ordinary refrigerator in the fourth entry, Indiana Jones And The Kingdom Of The Crystal Skull, that was beyond the pale. For die-hard fans, that moment seemingly shattered the documentary-like realism that had previously been the hallmark of the franchise. Even today, a Crystal Skull fridge joke will score cheap laughs at comic-book and sci-fi conventions, so deeply ingrained is the hatred over that scene. But the Reddit community has decided to take the Indy fridge rage and do something productive with it. Specifically, the r/photoshopbattles subreddit has been digitally adding the crouching Dr. Jones and his notorious refrigerator to all sorts of locales and situations.
User timmy16744, for instance, has transplanted the crouching Ford into the infamous box from the finale of David Fincher’s Se7en.
Meanwhile, Sunbeamdreaming chose to combine two of Ford’s most durable franchises into one delightful GIF, embedding one within the other, Inception-style.
A user named cench decided that what the notorious refrigerator needed was a flux capacitor. As long as the damned thing is capable of surviving a nuclear explosion, it might as well propel Indiana Jones through time as well.
The possibilities here are many, as long as people don’t mind focusing so much of their time and energy on the actual scene from Crystal Skull. So far, that doesn’t seem to be a problem for Reddit.
