If the new Muppets movie, opening Thanksgiving, is anywhere close to the viral marketing campaign that Disney has been putting out for the movie, we’re in for a fantastic holiday. Earlier we mentioned the Muppets clash with OK Go, a fun music video that served as marketing for both brands. Now, The Muppets have released a parody trailer of The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo. The David Fincher remake arrives around Christmas, and it has one of the coolest trailers of the year, complete with a cover of Led Zeppelin’s “Immigrant Song,” produced by Trent Reznor and The Yeah Yeah Yeah’s Karen O.
Here’s The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo trailer:
And here’s The Muppets version:
This is classic Muppets. They cut the trailer exactly beat-for-beat, with their own style thrown in. They even got a good song to ape the “Immigrant Song” cover. I can’t wait until the movie. This should be fun.
