New Muppets Parody Trailer Online

New Muppets Parody Trailer Online

We're not sure which Muppet is in charge of marketing (okay, we've checked, it's Dr. Bunsen MSc) but they should take a big bow. The Muppets trailers have been a thing of furry genius. First there was that Hangover parody, then came the Green Lantern spoof and now, freshly in webworld, is this inspired 'Froggy Tattoo' riff on, well, you-know-what.

For newcomers to The Muppets movie, the story picks up with the world's biggest Muppets fan, Walter, uncovering a fiendish plot by oil tycoon Tex Richman (Chris Cooper) to destroy the Muppet Theatre. The furry fanboy begs his idol, Kermit, to help him and his friends Gary (Jason Segel) and Mary (Amy Adams), organise a telethon to raise $10 million and save the venue.



So which movie homage is next on the Muppets fond trailer-thon? Pigs in Space do Prometheus? Statler and Waldorf's Another Year? Or a Martin Scorsese concert doc of Dr. Teeth and The Electric Mayhem? Or all three? Please.


Kermit and the gang will be playing a cinema near you when The Muppets lands here on February 17. If you're in the US, you can see it from November 23. We're assuming there'll be plenty of advance screenings in Greenland. Bork!
