Itâ€™s a Screen Junkies milestone! 99 Honest Trailers down, and now number 100 is a movie that seemed destined for internet mockery; Fifty Shades of Grey. Before you take your first lash of the whip or sign your first non-disclosure agreement, they are already making fun of the Twilight fan-fiction that turned an annoying teenage girlâ€™s vampire fantasy into a bored adult womanâ€™s kinda sorta erotic fantasyâ€¦ â€œwhat are butt plugs?â€ Theyâ€™re plugsâ€¦ for your butt.
Check out the video below.
Opening with an interview with Snowqueens Icedragon herself, and quickly going into full on Twilight induced sarcasm, narrator Jon Bailey has a field day here. The movie that left audiences all over asking, â€œis that it?â€ After mixing up Dakota Johnson for Kristen Stewart we meet Christian â€œEdward Cullenâ€ Grey. Then itâ€™s time for the hot steamy action we expect like contract negotiations and emailsâ€¦ seriously there doesnâ€™t seem to be much here to see in terms of erotica. â€œTender missionary lovemakingâ€¦ Letâ€™s get kinky weird! Epic voice guy has a dull marriage!â€
In a variation of the Honest Trailers â€œSTARRINGâ€ we get a list of absolutely ridiculous lines from the book thankfully omitted from the film. The one about the Communist Manifesto has me dying! These pathetic lines are backed by a parody of filmâ€™s hit song â€œCrazy in Loveâ€ by Beyonce featuring lyrics like â€œWish someone would taze me right now.â€ We conclude with an obvious but dead on joke about skipping the movie completely and just watching porn.
This was as obvious an Honest Trailer as Iâ€™ve seen, but then again the source material was SUCH an easy target. Screen Junkies has over four million YouTube subscribers and produces a new Honest Trailer every Tuesday. Hopefully they continue on for hundreds more, because there are no funnier five minutes on the internet each week.
