Movie Trailer Mashups, Part Two

May 22, 2007 11:46 AM

Remember all those movie trailer mash-ups that were popular a year ago? Like “Brokeback Mountain” meets “Star Wars” with C3PO and R2 in love?

Anyway, new-school Internet production company Black20 is aiming to pioneer a new form of mock movie trailers.

Earlier this month, Black20 released a video that re-imagined the “Spider-man 3” trailer with product placement incorporated into it.

This week, the viral video crew has now woven in Muppets and jump roping and other absurdities into the trailer for “Pirates of the Caribbean.”

What do you think? The next trend in user-generated contributions to movie trailers?
