Indiana Jones just got a makeover courtesy of Anna Kendrick.
The Pitch Perfect 2 star donned Indy’s iconic dusty fedora and trusty whip for a video that promotes Red Nose Day.
The clip perfectly parodies the classic scene from Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade where Indy finds the knight guarding the Holy Grail. But this time around, the 700-year-old Templar Knight appears to be taken by Kendrick’s Indianna, gives her advice and tells her things like it’s “such a plain cup for such a pretty lady.”
Indianna then makes off with all the relics but also puts the Knight in his place by telling him she’s a professor of archeology and that “times have changed, man!”
The hilarious scene perfectly rips-off the classic movie while giving a sly nod to all-female reboots.
The actress will be joined by other celebrities like Dame Helen Mirren, Jimmy Fallon, Liam Neeson, One Direction and Zac Efron in America’s first ever celebration of Red Nose Day on May 21.

The event will feature comedy and musical performances, Funny or Die videos and short films that cast a light on the plight of those in need.
Fans can also look forward to performances by their favorite Game of Thrones stars. And if the teaser video filmed by Peter Dinklage is anything to go by, it will be a show stopper.
Red Nose Day is a very famous event in the United Kingdom that’s dedicated to raising money for children and young people who’re living in poverty. The day has raised more than $1 billion over the last 30 years and has now reached America’s shores.
People are encouraged to have fun while raising money for the worthy cause. Participants can organize their own fun fundraising activities or they can help by buying red noses from Walgreens and Duane Reade stores. They can also watch and donate during the 3-hour special NBC telecast.
