When we first saw the new Jurassic World trailers, we were stunned and excited. Then, after it sunk in that the actor that plays doofus Andy Dwyer on NBC’s hilarious Parks and Recreation would be fighting dinosaurs, we sort of imagined a mashup of the two.

Apparently, Thanks Mom Productions had a similar thought, as they’ve taken footage of Chris Pratt from both the movie trailers and the TV show and edited them together for a funny video that’s all kinds of awesome.

Check it out.

“Andy Dwyer — security, sweets, body man… Javelin, if need be,” says the increasingly popular actor in his Parks and Recreation role. After his star-making turn in Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy and his casting in the lead male role in Jurassic World, we’d surely like to see any nods to his earlier television role in the new film.

Chances are that won’t happen, of course, but we can dream a little, right?
