Are we getting a second look at Dale Denton and Saul Silver’s weed journeys with another Pineapple Express film? Sort of. Rogen continued his genius marketing in playing in on unofficial holidays to promote his directorial debut This Is The End.
Earlier today Seth Rogen released a gag for April Fools’ as the trailer for Pineapple Express 2 launched just in time for the holiday. Over the weekend, there was buzz created per This Is The End’s Facebook about an official red band trailer being released on Monday for Rogen’s new film. We should have known that Seth was up to something, being that today is April Fools’.
The red band trailer shows Saul Silver (James Franco) and Dale Denton (Seth Rogen) repeating infamous lines from the first Pineapple Express film, with the trailer going on to say that the duo are back for a second hit. Shortly before the trailer ends, we see James Franco, Seth Rogen, and Jonah Hill playing a game of puff, puff, pass in Franco’s home in the middle of the apocalypse for This Is The End.
Before the Pineapple Express 2 turned This Is The End teaser trailer ends, Rogen quips “We should make sequels to more of our movies. I’m pretty good at the song.” Rogen continues as he sings M.I.A.’s hit song from the Pineapple Express movie, “Paper Planes.” By the time the trailer ends we have been punk’d but extremely excited for This Is The End.
For Rogen’s This Is The End, this is the second teaser trailer we’re receiving for the film that stars Rogen, James Franco, Jonah Hill, Danny McBride, Craig Robinson, and Jay Baruchel playing skewed versions of themselves upon the brink of the apocalypse. The first teaser trailer came the night before the Mayans said the world as we knew it would end. It proved to be a great marketing scheme and got everyone talking about the summer comedy.
