"The Muppets: The Pig with the Froggy Tattoo" Teaser Trailer Online

    I mean direct references to events that happened in earlier films. Those are sort of throw back jokes. We have never had movies that referenced events from prior films before that.

    Why the heck every time I go to that certain theater I ALWAYS see the Green with Envy trailer? i'd've killed to see this in front of Lion King 3-D. Didn't give a crap about the 3-D... I just wanted to see it on the big screen again. Plus, I only have the VHS tape and my VCR broke months ago.
  2. Close, but I keep hearing "Company of skills" (like as in a musical/show company). I'm not positive, but I think I'm hearing a "P". I'm also thinking it's definitely ills as you suggest. I hear an "L" where I used to think I heard a "Y".
    Also, I'd like to agree with those who say this is the best trailer spoof so far. It has a lot of original footage and features quite a variety of Muppets. I can't get over all the classic characters that are returning to the big screen! I don't care if they don't have speaking parts, it's still frickin' awesome! To think that they bothered to rebuild Thog! (One of favorite character designs) This particular trailer has so much energy and helps build up the movie as a fun and exciting story. The song is amazing as well!
    By the way, while this may be my first post, I've actually been lurking around here for years. Apparently it took a really exciting movie trailer and a lyrics discussion to get me to officially join. Then again, we've only been waiting 12 years for this movie.

    I wish there was a full length version of the electronic "froggy tattoo" song. DW Mckim mentioned some goosebumps inducing parts of the new trailer...for me its toward the end when the curtain rises, and especially after the "so worth it" part. It's very aggressively unapolagetic about the Muppets being back and edgier than ever.

    Im just getting nervous about the complete lack of awareness outside internet trailers and lack of merchandise. I didnt think the Diz would be playing this so close to the chest.

    Also I keep noticing seriously obscure/background TMS characters with all these new trailers...crazy sauce

    I think Disney needs to release a GOOD full length final trailer, and just go all out Toy Store 3 level of marketing.

    It DOES sound like his writing. I was just thinking the other day that we haven't asked him any questions or sent him any interviews for AGES. I bet he's been heavily involved with all the periferal (sp?) stuff to the movie, even though he wasn't too involved with the film itself.

    I loved this trailer it was definetly the most exotic and exciting one out there. I loved how it had a torn picture of Kermit and Miss Piggy and they were each holding one half. I can't wait for this movie to come!

    Yes it is.

    Nope, it's "Muppet Show" season four guest star and recent Best Supporting Actor Oscar winner (for "Little Miss Sunshine") Alan Arkin.

    Yes! Company sounds better. I was hearing the P, which was why comedy sounded close but not quite there.

    So the new, updated lyrics are like this?

    Whoa Whoa
    Muppets Muppets Muppets Muppets
    So many fixes
    So many years
    I see you vanishing
    Over the hills
    Followed by a cast iron
    Company of skills
    I saw a froggy tattoo that just broke Miss Piggy’s will.

    That sounds right to me. :smirk:
    Thanks for the correction. The glasses and hat threw me off.

    Hi All,
    Here are the correct lyrics - got them from a good source!

    Whoa Whoa
    Muppets Muppets Muppets Muppets

    So many fixes
    So many ills
    I see you vanishing
    Over the hills
    Followed by a cast iron property of skills
    I saw a froggy tattoo that just broke Miss Piggy’s will.

    I really appreciate the first parody trailer too. The bait and witch was perfect, as most people in America assumed the Muppets were retired.

    At the 1:15 mark in the trailer, I noticed that the store front on the right hand side of the screen says "Mack's Butcher Shop" or something like that.

    I wonder if that could be a reference to the character Mack that appeared in the commercials that they did for McGarry's Sausages, Claussen's Beard and the phone companies in the 60's.

    Is it just me or is the person they circled when talking about having to put the guy in the movie actually a girl? (I know they're making it up, but still- it looks like a girl)
