THE MUPPETS Parody THE GIRL WITH THE DRAGON TATTOO
In an absolutely genius piece of marketing, the upcoming film The Muppets does a stellar job of parodying the equally stellar quick-cut edited trailer for David Fincher's upcoming film adaptation of Stieg Larsson's novel The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo.
"The Pig With the Froggy Tattoo" features several of the actors making cameos in The Muppets, including Sarah Silverman, Neil Patrick Harris, Alan Arkin, Rico Rodriguez and Rashida Jones. It also has a catchy Muppets version of Trent Reznor and Karen O's rendition of "Immigrant Song" from The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo trailer that includes the best-ever use of sound effects from the classic Atari 2600 version of the Pac-Man videogame.
The Muppets is scheduled to arrive in theaters on November 23, 2011. In the meantime, you can check out the trailer goodness below...
