Muppets get all tech-ed up

By  |  0 Comments

Described as a musical/mystery/comedy, the latest in The Muppets movie franchise, Muppets Most Wanted, is doing its darnedest to infect the internet with viral campaigning.

The story, in which our troubled fuzzy puppets get wrapped up in an international crime caper, is summed up in a one-minute trailer that cleverly incorporates mock-blogger reviews, piss-take hashtags, and made-up handles and emoticons.

Hilariously, the trailer stops three-quarters of the way through only to be ‘infected’ by a bunch of annoying pop-up windows, then continues, giving us the hint that there’s going to be a heck of a lot of technological mishaps in the new movie.

Muppets Most Wanted is due for release April 10 and stars Ricky Gervais, Ty Burrell and Tina Fey.
