SALT LAKE CITY — “Avengers: Infinity War” released its newest trailer earlier this week, and the hype — that predictable hype — continues to grow for this film. It’s already shattered pre-sale ticket numbers (dethroning “Black Panther” in the process). And some would say that it is the most ambitious crossover event in history.

It still remains unclear how this meme began, but it continues to grow as pop culture fans uncover more crossover examples.
We’ve collected some of the top versions of this meme for you.
There’s this Star Trek crossover when Capt. James Kirk (William Shatner) met Capt. Jean-Luc Picard (Patrick Stewart) in the "Star Trek Generations" film.
Or this literal crossover on Michael Jordan:

Or that time Chandler Bing (Matthew Perry) and Rachel Green (Jennifer Aniston) “Friends” popped up on a Microsoft Windows 95 video guide.
Muppets at a WWE pro wrestling event? Sure.
Or when the Muppets appeared with Star Wars characters:

And then there was the time Predator appeared in the Archie comics.
Marvel character The Punisher also showed up in Archie.
Wait, the Flintstones met the Simpsons?
