Ready To Be Green With Envy?
The Muppets trailer is here!

Now this is clever, folks. Eschewing the usual flashy trailer and launch announcement, the team behind The Muppets have instead kicked off the promotion on the pic by releasing a stealthy little teaser trailer that at first appears to be for something entirely different – before revealing its true nature. And you can watch it below.

Yes, we’re treated to what looks like a trailer for a none-more bland generic rom-com called Green With Envy. Except it features Jason Segel and Amy Adams, and we all know what they’ve been working on this year. But to keep the ruse up, the Muppet gang A) aren’t introduced until near the end for a random blast (literally, in one case) of fuzzy-fuelled scenes and B) there’s even a poster up for the alleged gentle romance pic.

There’s not a lot to learn about the actual pic itself here, other than the essentials – that Kermit, Miss Piggy and the rest are in it – but it’s certainly a change from the average blockbuster trailer. Plus there’s still plenty of time for more before the movie arrives on February 17…

Check out the teaser and let us know your thoughts. The poster is available at Green With Envy's "official" Facebook page.

grrrrr....
would have been even more clever if you had not mentioned that the trailer was for The Muppets. The whole point of it is you don't know what the trailer is for till Kermit shows up. Silly silly empire. More
