Watch: Another Hilarious Twitter-Centric 'Muppets Most Wanted' Spot
Just last week, we highlighted an amusing Muppets Most Wanted spot using faux hype from Twitter (mocking Internet lingo and whatnot) to get people excited for the film. Last night during the Golden Globes (see the winners here, and the video highlights here), a new spot emerged with outrage that the unreleased Disney film was not nominated for 247 awards. Then the spot chronicles an ensuing Twitter argument, complete with spelling errors and taunts, all topped with a hilarious end that will be familiar to anyone who has seen spam in the comments section on any website. This is the kind of clever marketing we like. Watch!
Here's the new TV spot for James Bobin's Muppets Most Wanted from Disney:
Muppets Most Wanted is directed by James Bobin (The Muppets) who co-wrote the script with Nicholas Stoller. This time the entire Muppets gang is on a global tour, selling out grand theaters in some of Europe’s most exciting destinations, including Berlin, Madrid and London. But mayhem follows the Muppets overseas, as they find themselves unwittingly entangled in an international crime caper headed by Constantine—the World’s Number One Criminal and a dead ringer for Kermit—and his dastardly sidekick Dominic, aka Number Two (Ricky Gervais). The film also features Ty Burrell, Tina Fey, Ray Liotta and many more with Walt Disney Pictures releasing the film everywhere on March 21st, 2014 next year. Excited?
