All good things must come to an end, we suppose and so it’s with heavy heart and light kidneys we announce that the Muppet gang has decided that they’re done with parody trailers for the new film. Well, after this latest, mega-meta-mash up, which you can see below!
Yes, after the likes of the Hangover spoof, the Green Lantern nod, and the epic Pig With The Froggy Tattoo, now comes one that not only acknowledges that Team Muppets have been doing these for a while now, but also manages to spoof their own parody-driven tendencies. Oh, and still finds time for quick winks at Paranormal Activity, Happy Feet, Puss In Boots and Breaking Dawn.
One of the best trailer campaigns to happen along in yonks, this has made us all the more excited to see the pic. Which, in case you forgot, finds dedicated Muppet fan Walter, big brother Gary (Jason “The” Segel) and his girlfriend Mary (Amy Adams) rounding up the fuzzy gang with Kermit’s help so they can put on a telethon to save their old theatre from demolition at the hands of nasty oil baron Tex Richman (Chris Cooper).
While lucky American types get to see the final product over Thanksgiving (the release date is November 23, to be exact), we have to wait until February 10, 2012. Which, as we think you’ll agree, is simply Not Fair.
