Call super class method from different method

Bit verbose, but:

self.class.superclass.instance_method(:method_name).bind(self).call

For those times when you want to use super but you’re calling from outside of the actual method on super.

I don’t hate how explicit it is though. It can also be extracted into a helper class to eliminate some of the craziness.
