Congratulations, human race, we’ve survived yet another prophesied doomsday scenario and can continue on with our lives without the fear of fire raining down from the sky. There’s only one way we know how to celebrate such a momentous occasion right: Crack open a can of green beans from the emergency rations stockpile, kick back, and watch a whole bunch of end of the world movies with the smug satisfaction that only comes from making an entire segment of the world’s population look like a bunch of raving crackpots. For the sake of time, YouTube user Critica Daquele Filme has strung together some of the best scenes from these films in one bombastic supercut package, showcasing what could have been, but thankfully wasn’t.
In the event that the apocalypse does indeed occur after this video is posted and wipes out every living life form on Earth, pray that our doom isn’t one that Micheal Bay would have envisioned. Ask yourself, do you really want to cross over into the next plane of existence knowing you died in a gratuitous and cheesy explosion that lacked substantial storytelling? Didn’t think so.
