The Lyrics

Ever notice that almost every advertisement for an upcoming movie uses "What I Like About You" ? Well, it's about time it had some lyrics that reflected this purpose...
Shh!
Don't talk!
Shh!
Don't talk!

Man, this trailer looks cool
It stars Vince Vaughn
It's another lame quest he
And the Wilson brothers are on
Yeah!

Keep on spending ten bucks a show
Even though the real movie will blow
We fool you
Because the trailer looks cool

Man, this trailer looks cool
A remake of "Flashdance"
With Jessica Alba, Busta Rhymes,
And Ron Howard's father, Rance
Yeah!

Don't wait for it on DVD
Even though there's better stuff on TV
We fool you
Because the trailer looks cool
Because the trailer looks cool
Because the trailer looks cool

Wow!

Shh!

Man, this trailer looks cool
It makes you wanna see
"Harry Potter Meets Spy Kids"
Or "Weekend at Bernie's Part III"
Yeah!

Keep increasing box office gains
Even though these films can damage your brain
We fool you
Because the trailer looks cool
Because the trailer looks cool
Because the trailer looks cool
Shh!

(Whispered)
Because the trailer looks cool
Because the trailer looks cool
Because the trailer looks cool
Because the trailer looks cool

Shh!
Don't talk!
Shh! Shh! Shh!
Shh!
Don't talk!
Shh!
Don't talk!
Shh!

So true... and now you've eloquently illuminated the derivation of the term "trailer trash"!

excellent - very funny gets with the movie titles, although I'm not so sure about the "Ron Howard's father's name is Rance" line, although just putting it in was funny in itself - lol - and a great point you make, Porkbeard - 555

Thank you, everyone! I had originally hesitated posting this one, but I am glad that you thought it was funny. Also, I put the "Ron Howard's father, Rance" line in there because he always pops up in movies in small roles, usually as a preacher (look up Rance Howard at www.imdb.com). His part as a bit character would, in my mind, constitute another piece of modern Hollywood tripe. No wonder movie execs are upset that people download their "masterpieces" for free.
