TRAILER PARK: Super Bowl edition [UPDATED]


And now, a special Trailer Park: with the genre-themed commercials from the Super Bowl:

Let’s start with the new spot for The Avengers, which comes out on Star Wars Day:

And you can see an extended spot at the movie’s Facebook page.

This isn’t exactly genre, but it’s got holographic dancing monkeys, an alien in a body bag, and someone in a flying suit:

Chevy has two with aliens:


New trailer for G.I. Joe: Retaliation features more of Bruce:

And the aliens that run Hulu have a new base inside the Hollywood sign:

This one from MetLife includes He-Man, Marvin the Martian, Atom Ant, The Jetsons, Richie Rich & Daphne in a limo (!), Optimus Prime, Mr. Peabody and his boy Sherman, and tons of other cartoon characters. But… Richie Rich and Daphne??

Disney’s John Carter still doesn’t mention Mars/Barsoom. They’re definitely going for the pulp action adventure instead of the science fiction identity, even though the movie has green aliens and giant white apes with four arms…

Toyota has this one for the Camry, complete with time-traveling baby, and a DMV that’s a complete fantasy:

Spot for Battleship:

UPDATE: And the spot for Transformers: The Ride, which was probably the template for Battleship‘s aesthetic…

Here’s the Volkswagen spot we’ve already seen:

And, of course, this one:

So, which is your favorite?
