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, 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.)

  1. The whole movie has already leaked. Watch it here:
    It’s actually kind of funny

  2. I love Internet memes as much as the next person, but this kind-of makes me lose faith in humanity.

  3. BNPG? BNPG!

  4. This probably takes place in the world of Make-Believe-Internet-Land that some kid (of the Ben Savage type) gets sucked into by his YouTube account after running upstairs into his room because he had a huge fight with his dumb parents about homework.

    • I think you mean Fred Savage. Ben Savage was less interested in flights of fancy, and more interested in getting some of that sweet Topanga ass.

      • You are correct. I was a little too young to know about Fred’s crazy antics, but knew that Boy Meets World was on at 8:30 on Friday night.

  5. I bet Aaron Seltzer is crying into his script for “YouTube Video” right now.

  6. No. No no no no no. I hate (but really LOVE to hate) PR copy bullshit. “Command an audience”? REALLY? “Yeah, let’s not get actual actors who a paid to act and make actorial decisions, let’s go get the real people who have some major entitlement issues and hope to cling to fleeting fame as long as humanly possible. Yeah, I want to harbor that in society.”

  7. Glad to see Freakout Kid freak out on Barbarians (?) rather than his remote control.

  8. What I want to know is whether there will be any finger biting by anyone named Charlie.

  9. True story: my acting troupe did a short play on the internet culture last year, opening with a live meme montage. I have fluffy wild blonde hair and I played Christian the lion. That’s what this movie needs.

  10. “(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?)”

  11. I’m now actively hoping that Double Rainbow is right about that whole “world coming to an end” thing.

  12. Some days I want to plunk down $25 for tickets, glasses, and concessions to watch 2.5 hours of a highly polished Hollywood turd in the dark with strangers. Some days I would rather see something like this.

  13. I have watched it and I must say that is really a worth seeing movie.
