A distinct shift is occurring with late night talk shows. Some of the funnier viral videos we see come straight from talk show segments that seem tailor made to see popular attention. After the Academy Awards Jimmy Kimmel hosted an awards special and created a bunch of fake movie trailers based on past viral videos. Incredibly, these videos star some very recognizable names including Tom Hanks, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Kevin Spacey, Gary Oldman and Chris Hemsworth. Hit the jump to see the videos.
Bitman Begins – a Christopher Nolan-esque send-up of Charlie bit my finger.
Sweet Brown: Ain’t Nobody Got Time For That – a movie featuring Queen Latifah as Sweet Brown from her famous interview.
I wouldn’t expect any of these fake trailers to become movies, but you really never know. Which one was your favourite?
