‘Muppets Most Wanted’ Viral Ad is Totes Da Bomb

'Muppets Most Wanted' PosterWalt Disney Studios has just released this new viral ad on its YouTube page promoting Muppets Most Wanted, most likely the first of many parody ads if 2011’s The Muppetsmarketing is any indication.

Instead of taking shots at other films, however, this particular ad pokes fun at the burgeoning marketing method of using the tweets of ‘ordinary folk,’ not actually reviewing the film, but instead just simply voicing the intent of seeing the film. All of the tweets/accounts named in the ad do actually exist (see embedded below), but they are obviously not genuine and were all generated for the sake of making the ad, embedded below.

Amazon ‘Confirms’ ‘Frozen’ Blu-ray March 18 Release Date While Walmart Redacts

Disney 'Frozen' on Blu-rayDisney’s Frozen has been garnering accolades and attention for all sorts of reasons, most of which have been for quite positive ones, while others have been — well, confusing.

Take the case of the hotly anticipated home video release of Frozen. Amazon was first to begin accepting pre-orders — even while the film was just debuting in theaters — but this, in essence, has become the norm for Amazon. It’s a given that the product will be released on Blu-ray eventually, so why not accept pre-orders? Only Amazon had also been taking pre-orders for a 3D version of the Blu-ray, one it had to subsequently remove and unceremoniously cancel all orders.

‘Muppets Most Wanted’ to Feature Brand New Muppet? Plus Character Descriptions (Tiny Spoilers)

'Muppets Most Wanted' PosterWhen Disney produced The Muppets in 2011, it introduced a brand new character, Walter. Given Walter’s wide acceptance into the already established Muppet family — by both fans and Muppets alike, it only makes sense that the opportunity is seized in the sequel to introduce another new Muppet to the world (at least one, anyway).

The news comes to us by way of production notes for Muppets Most Wanted provided to us by Walt Disney Studios, who mentions her by name (or at all) just once and in a very manner-of-fact manner. Referring to sets that had to be built that would take all Muppet sizes into consideration, production designer Eve Stewart notes that Muppet sizes range from the seven-foot tall Sweetums to the two-foot tall Carmen. So there you have it, Carmen is two feet tall.

Disney’s Muppets Most Wanted takes the entire Muppets gang on a global tour, selling our grand theaters in some of Europe’s most exciting destinations, including Berlin, Madrid, Dublin 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, portrayed by Ricky Gervais. The film stars Tina Fey as Nadya, a feisty prison guard and Ty Burrell as Interpol agent Jean Pierre Napoleon.
