Though the Green Bay Packers may not have made it to the Super Bowl, that doesn't mean they were part of the big game. A new TV spot for Pitch Perfect 2 debuted during the game, and in case you didn't notice them in the first trailer for the a capella sequel, the new TV spot makes sure to point it out again. Yes, the Green Bay Packers are the muscular a capella team singing Destiny Child's "Bootylicious" in this TV spot for the anticipated musical sequel. I'm betting that there's a big chunk of fans who probably weren't aware that the Packers were even part of Pitch Perfect 2, but a short featurette shines a light on them below too. Watch!
Here's the Super Bowl spot for Elizabeth Banks' Pitch Perfect 2 from Universal:
And here's a short behind-the-scenes look at the Packers cameo in the movie:
You can still watch the first trailer for Pitch Perfect 2 right here.
Pitch Perfect 2 is directed by Elizabeth Banks (star of Pitch Perfect, making her feature directorial debut) and written by Kay Cannon (Pitch Perfect, "30 Rock," "New Girl") This time the Barden Bellas (Anna Kendrick, Rebel Wilson, Brittany Snow and more joined by new faces like Hailee Steinfeld) are competing in the World Championships of A Capella, an event that only happens every four years, and no America team has ever won. Skylar Astin, Ben Platt, Adam DeVine and even Anna Camp from the first film are back too, with some new groups taking the stage. Universal Pictures releases the film next year on May 15th, 2015.
I can hear the LOL'ing in the theater now... but sounds like they are legit singers, at least for underground riff-offs.
