To promote their theatrical release last year The Muppets released a series of hilarious parody trailers in which footage from their movie was recut to resemble some other film. Now The Muppets is coming to DVD, and they’re at it again.
This time they’re targeting The Hunger Games with a trailer in which, well, the Muppets fight each other a lot. Some of this should be familiar to those of you who’ve read the books, but even if it’s not it’s worth watching simply because the Muppets are genius and, no kidding The Muppets was one of the best movies of last year.
Alright it’s not as good as their other parodies but just on their own the clips are genius. I’m particularly fond of the barbershop quartet bit, in which Beaker pops up wielding an axe. Seriously, if you haven’t seen it yet, make sure you pick up a copy of The Muppets when it arrives on Blu-ray later this month.
