The success of The Muppets marketing campaign is coming to an unfortunate end and after parody trailers for The Green Lantern, The Hangover II, and The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, this final parody takes all of that and combines it with the box office smash Paranormal Activity 3 and new upcoming movies like Puss in Boots, Happy Feet, and of course The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part I. Check it out after the jump.
What makes the trailer so much fun is that not only does it combine all the previous parodies and future trailers, but it also breaks the fourth wall. It acknowledges that the Internet has enjoyed their parodies and that it is finally coming to an end.
Here is the official synopsis for the film,
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 house 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.
