MacGruber Viral Video Is Plain Old Weird
If this video didn’t reek of Saturday Night Live skit failure and include a very quick movie plug, I would have never known “Hotties with Bodies” had anything to do with MacGruber. Director Jorma Taccone’s introduction and the background drone is a little on the disturbing side and not very funny.
This only reinforces my concern that MacGruber could be downright stupid. The trailer is amusing, but just as in a number of the SNL skits, some of the jokes fall flat. If this is what the film’s viral marketing campaign is going to be like, my expectations are going to need some major re-wiring.
