Just in time for father’s day, these dad jokes are sure to get you groaning by reminding you of your favorite superheroic dad.
The video opens with Harbour explaining that he plays Red Guardian, a character who is also a father, before launching into the bad dad jokes, while Pugh (who plays Yelena) and Johansson (who is reprising the role of Natasha Romanoff) are forced to listen.
After pulling out an overstuffed notebook that’s labeled “David’s Dad Jokes,” Harbour asks, “Why did the Black Widow wear a disguise?”
Pugh and Johansson are speechless, but Harbour continues anyway, saying, “Because she was a spy-der!” Soon, Harbour admits that he doesn’t even need the book, reciting plenty of awful puns from memory.
Things just continue to get worse from there, and just when you think you’ve groaned your last ughhhh, you’ll get one more! Neither Pugh nor Johansson can keep their composure throughout the video, and we bet you won’t be able to, either.
The video celebrates the release of Black Widow, which will be arriving at your local theater (as well as on Disney+ with premiere access) on July 9th, 2021.
At the end of the video, Harbour forces Pugh to admit that she did like a few of his jokes, which Harbour considers to be a victory. Hey, if that means that he’s exhausted his supply of puns, then we are happy, too!
Did you get a chance to check out the dad joke video? Which one did you groan the hardest about? Will you be watching Black Widow at home or in the theater on July 9th? We’re waiting to hear from you, Marvel Blog True Believers!
