‘Ultimate Teaser Trailer’ Parodies Every Movie Trailer Ever
As a way to promote the premiere of the new IFC show ‘Comedy Bang! Bang!’ on June 8th, creator Scott Aukerman has given us what certainly qualifies as the greatest mock trailer ever. It’s entitled, appropriately enough, “Ultimate Teaser Trailer” and it intentionally packs in more well-known stars, cliched plot points and melodrama than you could possibly imagine.
In roughly a minute-and-a-half, the trailer gives us a broken friendship, a single mom vowing to raise her baby alone, a woman who’s removed from life support, a cop with torn loyalties, an assassination and a kidnapping. All it lacks is a mad bomber bent upon destroying a city. Oh wait, that’s in there too.
Jon Hamm, Zach Galifianakis, Michael Cera, Jack Black, Will Arnett, David Cross, Seth Rogen, Topher Grace, Will Forte, Andy Richter, Chris Parnell and Colin Hanks are only a few of the actors who make an appearance in this hilarious teaser.
So, what does it all mean and how does this relate to the upcoming show? Beats us, but you can bet we’ll tune in on June 8th to find out.
