Yeah, you read that right. YouTuber Tana Mongeau may not have stayed a superhero, but she certainly did her time as one. The blonde beauty, believe it or not, stepped into the role of Pink Power Ranger in a cute viral video back in 2016 — and if you haven’t seen it yet, set aside about six minutes of your day to watch the 21-year-old kick some ass.
The now-famous vlogger appeared on an episode of Minute Match-Ups entitled “VOLTRON vs MEGAZORD,” alongside influencers Austin Creed, Mari Takahashi, Danny Shepherd and Tim Gettys. According to the video’s description, the creators “pit the resurgent Mighty Morphin’ Power Rangers against the crew of Voltron in a long-awaited fight to the death. Voltron and Power Rangers are two enormous franchises with fanbases too large to ignore.” In fact, they even called it a “battle of a generation.”
The clip in question was created by Ismahawk, a “battle arena web series that takes everyone’s beloved pop culture icons from comic books and Sci-Fi genres and pits them together to declare a victor.”
Unsurprisingly, Tana looked totally cute flexing her acting skills as the always-envied Pink Ranger. We mean, who didn’t want to be her every time your (older or younger) brother tried to rope you into play-fighting? Despite the fact that we may have been rooting for Tana in this particular clip, the Power Rangers were, in fact, defeated over the course of the six-minute video.
Plus, Tana also made light of the fun and funny clip back in March, retweeting Elijah Daniel‘s post about her stint as a Ranger. “HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAAHHAHAHAHA PTERODACTYL!” she captioned the post, alluding to her first spoken line in the video.
Truth be told, this actually isn’t the only time the MTV reality star has shown off her acting chops in the past. In fact, she’s been a part of the Escape The Night, a YouTube mini-series about a “surreality competition series,” where “10 guests are invited from the modern world to attend a dinner at the host’s newly acquired mansion estate, which has been locked in the 1920’s.”
The series has been streaming on the platform since 2017, when Tana picked up the role opposite other internet favorites such as Joey Graceffa and Colleen Ballinger. Actress Tana 2020: That’s our wish for this year!
