Funniest thing I've seen all week

They recently released the official trailer for New Moon (for the bunker-dwellers, that would be the sequel to Twilight) and I saw it online.

My reaction? If I have to pick a team, I am completely back on Jacob's. Or possibly Laurent's, cuz, yeah, hot.

These ladies, though? Their reactions are a bit more entertaining than mine. I think my favorite part though was when you hear the stars introduce the trailer. Robert Pattinson comes on sounding all British and "it's all for you, the fans" and Taylor Lautner is all, "Yeah, I'm pretty much adorable" and then we get Kristin Stewart . . .

(Note: You can quit around 2:40, the rest of it is just more of the same. And at the very end one of them notices that the MTV Movie Awards are still on, says "Who gives a [flip] about this show?" and turns off the TV.)

I think these ladies may be on Team Jacob as well, perhaps. ;-) Seriously, though, did Kristen Stewart not sound like a teenager being forced to participate in a family reunion skit? "There are motorcycles in this movie. Or something. Whatever. Ughh . . . "

I laughed so hard I cried. And since I'm an idiot mother, the kids saw it too and Ethan is for sure on Team Jacob and will probably be talking about wolves all day.

That fan reaction video was awesome! I also love how surprised they looked, especially since they are obviously the kind of fans that have re-read the books multiple times!

hannah said... [reply]

oh my heavens. That is hilarious!

Janssen said... [reply]

I was DYING laughing. That was the best thing I've seen in a while.

And, duh, totally team Jacob.

Or perhaps Team Anti-Kirsten Stewart. Because, man, she is KILLING the movies for me.

La Yen said... [reply]

I can't imagine what they would be like if Oprah ever gave them a car. Or a popsicle.

I much prefer the screenplay I wrote, it turns Bella into the proper idiot that she is. And I've always been on team Jacob, though the wardrobe person finally got Edward out of that shockingly awful peacoat. I'm also hoping that Pattycakes actually worked out for this movie and got a chest wax.

Natalie said... [reply]

I loved it! Those super-fans are awesome! I'd totally be friends with them in real life.

Also, did Kristen Stewart say they traveled to It-lee? Because the only thing worse than It-lee is Eye-talian.

Emily said... [reply]


People are really on Team Jacob? Really? But like...he's so whiney. And Edward shimmers. Also, New Moon was like, the lamest of the books, I think. I'm not a very good Twilight fan, I guess.

Science Teacher Mommy said... [reply]

Okay, "saga" is totally the right word. And what does Team Jacob girl mean "her fans?"

Nemesis said... [reply]

In response to STM's question about the reaction girl's "fans," I'm guessing she might be One Who Makes Youtube Videos, so she may be talking to the people who follow her stuff? That is my guess.

Bean said... [reply]

Oh my dear...you have touched a nerve with this one. Kristen Stewart=death. As in I will die because she is SO boring!! Seriously, what is wrong with her? I want to know!! I know that doesn't really have to do with what you wrote about but yesterday I was bugged so bad by that trailer. Awful.

Mrs. Clark said... [reply]

Kristin Stewart is extremely miscast, and could she be less enthusiastic about the plum role of the decade? (Except for the Harry Potter crew.) LOVED the fans' video. Hilarious! But I don't get it--I liked the books, but I haven't ever been that excited over a movie in my life.

Joy said... [reply]

I'm currently re-reading the series (hey, I'm unemployed people. Don't judge me.), and am about half way through New Moon. I never understood why people thought Jacob had a chance, seeing as how Bella's main motivation to hang out with him in the first place was to hear Edward's voice.

Also, I haven't seen the movie. Is it worth watching, or will I just get irritated like I do with just about every other movie based on a novel?

coolmom said... [reply]

The only reason (hope of all hopes) for Ms Stewart is that at some point when the butt kicking starts in movie #4 or whatever that she will actually have some skills. Yeah, finally, after paying all that money to see these stupid shows.

Lady Susan said... [reply]

I didn't necessarily mind Kirsten Stewart in Twilight, but find her less than compelling in the trailer for New Moon.

RP as Edward is also killing me. Maybe that is the point. Maybe he isn't supposed to look human or act human (which he doesn't) but then I just don't see the appeal for Bella.

Wasn't on team Jacob when I read the book, but I might just have to switch on over.

Loved the fan reaction. Dude, was she moved to tears? In less than two minutes? Impressive.

Science Teacher Mommy said... [reply]

And the open mouths? In shock or catching flies? I'm going to opening night (again) in the off-chance that I'll be sitting next two these superfans. THAT would be worth the price of admission.

Audra said... [reply]

TOTALLY love Twilight... TOTALLY dislike the movie casting. REALLY hate Kristen Stewart... also do not like my vampires with a constant 5 o'clock shadew. But still will see it opening night because I can not help myself. I just like to see the story played out on screen! But wish they could start over form the beginning with a better cast and more money.

And yes, that girl does not know how to behave in public.

Azúcar said... [reply]

Oh, Edward. No, you're not alive,

You are UNDEAD.

...for heaven's sake, stop acting like a teenager.

Nemesis said... [reply]

Yeah, Azucar, I must confess to a "Bwah hah!" when he said that bit about being "alive."

Scully said... [reply]

Now I know why all the middle school girls were insane on Monday. Residual hysteria. Is this what Beatlemania was like?

Funny aside - a professor of mine who has a 12 year-old granddaughter asked us about the 4th book, because her granddaughter is begging to be able to read it and her mom hasn't read it, so doesn't know if she should let her. Any thoughts?

Taren said... [reply]

i'm glad i'm not the only one who finds this funny.

there are no words...

except for i found the ACTUAL preview more comical than the annoying girls on the couch.

Twilight is the devil!


Nemesis said... [reply]

Huh. Scully, I think it would depend on the 12-year-old girl. I mean, if they're cool with all the implied (married) headboard/pillow/cottage-destroying sex and the incredibly violent childbirth scene and the BEYOND STUPID baby names then hey! There you go! I'd say out of all the books, though, THIS is the one you would want the parent to read first and decide on. But that is just my opinion.

chosha said... [reply]

Those fangirls were funny and sad, though I will admit I found the wolf transformation a bit of a rush myself.

I'm definitely Team Edward, even if he is a bit of a tool in New Moon. And just to really buck the system, I think Kristen Stewart is perfectly cast, even if she has been less than enthusiastic sometimes off-screen. She makes Bella bearable for me. In the books I just kept wanting to kick her whiny butt to the kerb.

AmyJane said... [reply]

Aaannnddd, I'm crying, I'm laughing so hard. I think my favorite part is where one girl turns to the other and says "Did you SEE the wolf?" Um, no, I TOTALLY missed it! Good stuff...

Wendyburd1 said... [reply]

Okay I am so Team Edward it isn't funny, but I loved their reaction. Mine was like that but internal!

april said... [reply]

team edward, for sure. (although i like jake & was hugely disappointed when the author made his love life connect back to bella. i wanted to see jacob find happiness somewhere unrelated to bella.)

these girls/fans must have read the books, right? i was a little thrown by how surprised they seemed. really, what did move that one girl to tears? i probably going to have to watch both videos again now.

i'll admit that although there definitely were some lines that fell flat and some definite wooden-like acting, i don't mind kristen stewart or robert pattison (?spell). at the end of the day, their chemistry was enough to win me over.

p.s. WORST BABY NAME EVER - so true!!

I'm sure these comments make Ms. Meyer cry all the way to the bank. she just made Forbes Top 100

"Among the newcomers on this year's list: Twilight scribe Stephanie Meyer (No. 26)... Meyer, who sold 29 million books and created a vampire frenzy, earned $50 million during the year-long period."

Nemesis said... [reply]

Man, what would it even be like to make $50 million? I think I would spend a lot of time every day raking together a pile of cash and then rolling around in it. Just before the staff come in to feed me brie and chocolate.

Mal Mecham said... [reply]

Can I just say that it's a sad world we live in when people get THAT excited over a trailer for a pointless movie but can't seem to watch the news at night? The end. Thanks for making me laugh Nem. :)

Anonymous said... [reply]

So, I read all the books and I'm not ashamed to admit that I loved them. The movie though? Not so much. ESPECIALLY in the theater. Every time a new character showed up on screen, teenage sounding shrill screams happened all around me.... much like these ladies. I'm hurting a little inside that grown women thought it was cool to tape their reactions and that their reactions were that ridiculous. I'd kind of like to call them ho bags much like irresponsible parents at the library if I'm being honest. And I am.

word verification: morho -- moron slash ho bags who like Twilight just a wee bit too much.
