Miss Piggy With a Dragon Tattoo?! Muppets Take a New Spoof

After the first "The Muppets" parody trailer took us by surprise (the "Green With Envy" romantic comedy setup was stupendously executed) and the second made us laugh (sending up"The Hangover 2"), we were anxious to see what our fine felt friends would cook up next.

Unfortunately, all we got was a straight-up trailer which still made us excited for what looks like one of our most-anticipated movies of late 2011.

Fortunately, the folks behind "The Muppets" weren't content to rest on their laurels, especially in the face of such a stylish cut as the near-music video for David Fincher's upcoming "The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo" adaptation. Long story short, that's how we ended up with this newest "The Muppets" trailer, which apes Fincher's style perfectly, albeit with a slightly wackier soundtrack than the industrial "Immigrant Song" cover performed by Karen O and Trent Reznor in the "Dragon Tattoo" clip. But, then again, those guys didn't end with "Wocka wocka wocka," either. Bonus points for the poster, although we're a little disappointed they didn't go all the way and give us a topless Piggy.
