There’s possibly just a slight overlap between the fandoms of Twin Peaks and The Golden Girls, but that doesn’t mean this intro mashup can’t be enjoyed by both.

This video is the third Golden Girls mashup by creative duo Stay Golden, following an Orange Is The New Black version and, arguably an even odder combo, a True Detective remix. Watch all three below, but let’s start with the most relevant one. After all, wasn’t Shady Pines a gateway to the Black Lodge?
