Capitalizing on the hype of Disney’s relaunch of 80’s sci-fi classic Tron, Break just launched its own original parody video starring adult film star Ron Jeremy, entitled Tron: Jeremy.
The video is reminiscent of Jack Black’s parody of Lord of the Rings for the MTV Movie Awards. The spoof seamlessly inserts Jeremy into the real trailer for Tron: Legacy, the highly anticipated remake of the 1983 classic which comes out in theaters today.
Jeremy certainly has a sense of humor about himself. The vid is chock full gags alluding to Jeremy’s career as a porn star. The preview culminates in Jeremy meeting his younger self—a scene which splices actual video of Jeremy from decades ago onto a character’s body from the real trailer.
Online movie parodies, which play up on the marketing and search traffic of movie releases, have become a tradition for online producers, like Key of Awesome and theStream.tv, so much that the studios themselves are developing trailers and teaser videos.
