When it was announced that beloved Oscar host Billy Crystal would be returning to shepherd the 84th Annual Academy Awards next month (after a brief flirtation with Eddie Murphy that was torpedoed by the overwhelming schmuck-ness of fired producer Brett Ratner), we all knew what was coming: Skillfully-edited movie parodies!
Turns out Crystal is not about to flip the script, as evidenced by this new TV ad for the Oscar telecast. Promoting a fake movie called "Off the Grid," it's a star-studded spoof that, well, does kind of hit you like a warm hot chocolate. Maybe not the edgiest drink in the world, but oddly comforting.
"Starring" Josh Duhamel, Megan Fox, Vinnie Jones, William Fichtner, and Robin Williams, it has us eagerly-awaiting February 26th.
