NOW THIS SHOULD BE THE TRAILER FOR THE EXPENDABLES
We’ll never get the trailer for The Expendables that we deserve — y’know, the one with “War Ensemble” in it — but I’ll definitely settle for one with Andrew W.K.’s “I Get Wet.” (The song selection seems especially appropriate since, as the cover for the album of the same name suggests, the liquid in question is not water.) This isn’t an official trailer (it was made by The Monocular Group, whomever that is), but it is way better than the actual trailers for the film. Sure, it’s pretty misogynistic — Devin Faraci at C.H.U.D. points out that “about 90% of mainstream movies are geared towards men,” so the whole conceit of this thing is like “the male moviegoer version of those white middle class people who think the world’s against them.” But it’s still kinda funny.
