Like every week since the dawn of time, this week has been filled with tragedies and sorrows. There have been arguments, injustices and unspeakable acts of selfishness and violence around the world.
Thanks to social media, we know more and more about everything happening to everyone, giving us some heavy emotional attachments to people and events we might not otherwise have known anything about.
The opening weekend of Avengers: Infinity War even has many fans "literally crying," "in tears," or "shaken" about the outcome of this story's first half. This is why we need to step back and realize this is a completely fictional world meant for fun and escape.
Thankfully, the some of the cast of the Avengers — Robert Downey Jr., Chadwick Boseman, Benedict Cumberbatch, Scarlett Johansson, Anthony Mackie, all the Chrises and one more "surprise" castmember — got together on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon to create their own Brady Bunch Theme parody, "The Marvel Bunch." This proves no matter what your politics are, what is happening in the world, or what you might be experiencing in your own life, it is important to step back and release some energy with the gift of laughter.
Oh, and if you're wondering who everyone's secret favorite "Chris" is, listen to the response when Chris Pratt pops up on screen.
Next week I'm sure will be another filled with trials and triumphs, but for now, Avengers Assemble! ....and make us laugh.
