For those keeping up with NBC’s Community, you’re probably used to a barrage of shout outs and references to classic movies and TV shows. But this week’s episode, teased by IGN, shows a brilliant 8-bit tribute that re-imagines the cast as adorable sprites.

It’s a general NES-style scene, but if you look at Winger’s jump, it sure bears a striking resemblance to a certain blue bomber. Love it! The episode “Digital Estate Planning” airs this week.

This isn’t the first Community post either – remember this Street Fighter fan art ?
