Hot off the release of their “Being Green” teaser (a sort of fictional faux rom-com), the marketing team for The Muppets has just released a new teaser, focusing more on the actual muppets. This one’s called “The Fuzzy Pack,” presumably a play on The Hangover‘s “Wolf Pack” campaign. Once again, the producers have done a brilliant job combining things that I love, in this case, namely, muppets and Danny Trejo. Chingón, guey, it must be my lucky day. Although this role might be a stretch for Trejo. He’s a solid actor, I’m just not sure he has the versatility to pull off “convict.”
“Mira, Frog, ju theenk you’re the only one who’s had a feest up hees culo? Welcome to prison ése.”
And here’s the Being Green teaser from the other day:
On vacation in Los Angeles, Walter, the world’s biggest Muppet fan, and his friends Gary (Jason Segel) and Mary (Amy Adams) from Smalltown, USA, discover the nefarious plan of oilman Tex Richman (Chris Cooper) to raze the Muppet Theater and drill for the oil recently discovered beneath the Muppets’ former stomping grounds. To stage The Greatest Muppet Telethon Ever and raise the $10 million needed to save the theater, Walter, Mary and Gary help Kermit reunite the Muppets, who have all gone their separate ways: Fozzie now performs with a Reno casino tribute band called the Moopets, Miss Piggy is a plus-size fashion editor at Vogue Paris, Animal is in a Santa Barbara clinic for anger management, and Gonzo is a high-powered plumbing magnate. Opens Thanksgiving. [official synopsis]
I have nothing else to add, other than Squealing Tom Brady.
