Watch: Stanford players recreate Top Gun beach volleyball scene to perfection

To the delight of all Maverick fans in the world, Tom Cruise recently announced that the rumored Top Gun sequel is a real deal, and that he plans to begin filming next year.

So naturally, with the recent news of the Top Gun sequel, Stanford’s beach volleyball team took to the sand to recreate the infamous scene, almost shot for shot — aviator sunglasses and 80s music included. And it is magnificent.

Needless to say, if Top Gun 2 is planning a follow-up to the original’s volleyball scene, these women would be fantastic choices.
