You’ll notice that this TrailerTown post isn’t coming out on Thursday, and that’s because we’ve been following the information surrounding The Happytime Murders since it was announced a few years ago and we couldn’t wait to talk about it with you. Listen, when we hear that Brian Henson (The Muppet Christmas Carol, Muppet Treasure Island, and Dinosaurs) is directing an adult-based muppet movie starring a lot of the voice actors we’ve come to associate with The Muppets (primarily Bill Barretta), we get excited. Then we saw how raunchy this TrailerTown actually is and we nearly lost our shit. So we had to put this together so we can all share in the debauchery right now.

Don’t watch this at work (trust us), but watch this TrailerTown and then read our Top 5 thoughts about it below:

Top 5 Things About The Happytime Murders Trailer

  1. Here Cum the Muppets – There’s a reason The Happytime Murders Red Band TrailerTown saves its final scene for the end. It packs the greatest punch. Who would’ve thought we’d get nearly 30 seconds of a muppet spraying silly string jizz all over the place, but that’s what we get!
  2. Lyin’ Brian – If you didn’t know what this movie was, the first 23 seconds of the TrailerTown is here to trick you even more. For the first part, this feels like another uplifting movie from the Henson clan (inspirational music and all), but then the trailer takes a hard (he he) left turn into sleaze and lives there the rest of the trailer. We love it.
  3. Supporting Hands – The Muppets are enough to get us into a theater, but you add Joel McHale, Maya Rudolph, Leslie David Baker (Stanley, from The Office), and Jimmy O. Yang (Jian Yang, from Silicon Valley), and you have sold yourself a guaranteed two tickets.
  4. Who Framed Feebles the Muppet – Have you seen Meet the Feebles? Probably not, but if you have, you’ll know that The Happytime Murders looks like a mashup of Who Framed Roger Rabbit? and Meet the Feebles. You may not know how great that is for the world, but trust us, it’s a good, good thing.
  5. “Rotten Cotton” – Around the 0:50 mark, a muppet hooker uses the phrase “Looking for some rotten cotton?” If we weren’t already sold on this movie, that phrase alone would get us to buy a pre-sale ticket.

At this point, August can’t get here fast enough. We want to wade in the sleaze of The Muppets when kids aren’t around. What about you? What did you think of this Red Band TrailerTown? Let us know in the comments!
