'The Avengers' trailer (on the cheap)!

The first trailer for one of this summer's most anticipated movies, "Marvel's The Avengers" has been viewed well over three million times on one YouTube account alone.

Having already made its mark on the geek world (not to mention pop culture as a whole), it was bound to get analyzed all over the Web, and indeed, it got the ultimate tribute in a "Sweded" version (inspired by the movie "Be Kind Rewind") by Bryan Harley and Roque Rodriguez (better known as "Dumb Drum") from Fresno, California.

Well on its way to 400,000 page views and beyond, this loving parody/shot-for-shot remake went viral last week (endorsements by "Avengers'" own "Loki," Tom Hiddleston, and "Iron Man" director Jon Favreau didn't hurt), so CNN Geek Out got in touch with Harley and Rodriguez to get the scoop. Check out their video response to our questions (and while you're at it, check out a side by side comparison):
