MacGruber Viral Video? Or An Unfunny Wannabe SNL Short?
I've admitted that I actually enjoyed the trailer for MacGruber, Will Forte's SNL skit-turned-movie, even though I'm not a fan of SNL. Maybe I've just got some hope that it could be entertaining or maybe I was just told by the gorgeous cinematography and explosions (probably the latter, to be honest). Collider found this viral video for MacGruber that's a 38-second behind-the-scenes "short" titled Hotties with Bodies. And it sucks. It's just frickin' awful. I think they were trying to create a digital short and somehow the marketing execs at Universal thought it was good. But that's just my opinion. Others may find it funny? Take a look.
Watch the Hotties with Bodies viral video for MacGruber:
A comedy based on Will Forte's bumbling secret agent named MacGruber seen on "Saturday Night Live" whose lack of skill and abundance of personal problems serve as a detriment to him and those around him.
MacGruber is directed by fellow SNL star Jorma Taccone, who hasn't directed any feature films before this, but has directed numerous skits and digital shorts for "Saturday Night Live" over the years. The screenplay was co-written by Will Forte, Jorma Taccone, and John Solomon, another veteran SNL writer. Universal is bringing MacGruber to theaters everywhere starting on April 23rd. Did anyone laugh at this viral video?
