You may have seen a “movie trailer” going around yesterday featuring Antoine Dodson, Double Rainbow Guy, Numa Numa guy, and others (although hey, guess what, it turns out there are not a ton of female viral video sensations. Get on it ladies! What, are your faces too precious to fall on?) called The Chronicles of Rick Roll. Obviously, this “movie trailer” was destined (and determined) to get spread around the Internet, but also it turns out that it is a real movie trailer. Kind of! From Business Insider:
We just got off the phone with the producer of the film, Andrew Fischer of Nurv.com, and he assured us “the movie is not a prank” and that it’s not just one elaborate “rick roll.” He’s been planning this film for over six months now, and he’s aiming for a theatrical release. “Instead of going to Hollywood for expensive A-list actors, why not sign people on with a name who command an audience?” Fischer told us.
Fischer went on to say that the movie will be an “epic comedy,” and that a longer trailer will be released soon to reveal more details of the film. “A lot of people will be very surprised by the plot,” said Fischer.
Haha. Theatrical release. Sure! What’s the tagline? I bet it’s “Hide your numa booma goes the what does it mean?” Get it? Mashups! Sandra Bullock IS The Net! Anyway, good luck to everyone involved. Genuinely. I wish you all the best and I hope that you get invited to the Vanity Fair Oscar Party in 2012. It’s supposed to be a very nice party. Watch the trailer for The Chronicles of Rick Roll after the jump.
All joking aside, I hope that Leroy Jenkins plays the narrator and constantly goes off script, and if that is not the case, then whoever made this movie, Nerf or whoever, you guys did it wrong. (Thanks to many people for sending me the video, but thank you to Melissa for the Business Insider article link.)
