As campy and disastrous as some remakes can be…others rise to the occasion, usually by not taking themselves too seriously. Case in point: The Muppets are back in theaters this Thanksgiving, but rather than just updating them with like tight jeans, an adderal dependency, and a Kardashian…The Muppets made a spoof of that much hyped Girl With a Dragon Tattoo trailer: The Pig With The Froggy Tattoo
It ain’t easy being green….especially with faux David Fincher tense edits and Trent Reznor speedpunk beats, lol!
I love the first youtube comment: “Based on the famous Swedish novel, ‘Bork bork bork bork’”
And what’s even more genius? The limited edition Muppets x Opening Ceremony fashion collaboration! You can buy the pieces at their stores, and get more details on their blog…. here’s a close-up of the awesome “Animal”-print button-down that my sister copped. Totally subtle and hilarious!
Compare The Muppets‘ spoof with the real Girl With The Dragon Tattoo trailer…

After the jump
Obviously, I’m totally amped for this movie too. I thought the original Swedish version did a fantastic job of visualizing the book. But the lead actress Rooney Mara has some monstrous Doc Martens to fill in matching the original’s Noomi Rapace. Speaking of movies…I gotta write up some thoughts on the screening of Drive which I saw at BAM last night. Along with the fantastic Q&A with director Nicholas Winding Refn. So good.
Come on….this is cutest thing ever!
