After releasing a web video trailer for mock movie Green With Envy, a cheesy romcom that gets interrupted by the muppets, Disney is at it again.
This time around, it's whipping up interest in upcoming The Muppets Movie by parodying The Hangover 2 movie trailers. The new fake movie is called The Fuzzy Pack, a reference to "The Wolf Pack" of The Hangover 2 trailer.
It's shot in the same way as The Hangover 2 trailer, using slow motion, and having "the pack" stroll through the streets, and what appears to be the aftermath of some disaster.
Are there more fake trailers to come? We hope so. A series of fake trailers, especially ones that parody other trailers, is a rather new and original idea. Good job Disney.
