Only “Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2” Fans Will Get This Joke

"Oh, it's a jolly holiday with Yondu!"

Okay, so this is technically a small spoiler.

Admittedly, not a real plot point one, but like, if you haven't seen Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 then this won't make any sense to you.

But if you HAVE seen the new Guardians film, then you will 110% love this photo that Michael Rooker – aka the weirdly lovable Yondu – just shared:

He included the caption: "She's Mary Poppins y'all... just kidding... #ImMaryPoppinsYall"

If you recall, one of the funniest moments (which is a bold statement, because the movie is pretty much non-stop funny) in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 happens during the big fight finale with Peter Quill's dad, Ego (Kurt Russell).

Peter and Yondu narrowly escape death and ~fly~ back down to the ground...

This is my quick sketch of the scene as best I can remember.

This is my quick sketch of the scene as best I can remember.

...and Yondu happens to be holding his whistle-controlled arrow like an umbrella, which prompts the following conversation:

Peter (giggling): "You look like Mary Poppins."

Yondu: "Is he cool?"

Peter hesitates.

Peter: "Hell yeah, he's cool."

Yondu thinks.

Yondu: "I'M MARY POPPINS, Y'ALL!!!!"

And that's the exact moment everyone fell in love with Yondu.

Can you actually imagine him as Mary Poppins though? Your move, Disney.
