Mad Max: Fury Road + the Benny Hill Theme = “Yakety Max”

What do you get when you cross Mad Max: Fury Road with Benny Hill? “Yakety Max,” a mashup from 6S Films that pairs the action film’s chase sequences with a heavy metal cover of the Benny Hill Show theme song, “Yakety Sax.” It may seem an improbable, and ultimately rather silly, combination, but the song that accompanied so many Benny Hill chase sequences actually works pretty well when playing over Mad Max’s own chaotic, roundabout dashes, and it wouldn’t be entirely out of place being played on the flamethrower guitar.
