Netflix Releases Ridiculous Trailer for ‘Mascots’ (VIDEO)
Writer/director Christopher Guest is one of the best mockumentary filmmakers in the business, covering everything from rock superstardom (This Is Spinal Tap) to competitive dog shows (Best In Show) to folk music (A Mighty Wind) right down to the Oscar season bonanza (For Your Consideration). Now, he’s taking his talents to Netflix with his latest mockumentary, which focuses on the world of sports mascots.
Mascots is set “in the ultra-competitive world of sports mascots where they compete for the most prestigious award in their field, the Gold Fluffy,” reads the official plot synopsis. The Netflix original film stars Jane Lynch, Parker Posey, Jennifer Coolidge, Ed Begley, Jr., and Fred Willard. Needless to say, the trailer is exactly as ridiculous as you’d probably expect a preview for a Christopher Guest movie to be. Naturally, that’s a good thing for people who enjoy comedy, particularly of the mockumentary variety. Mascots will debut on Netflix on October 13. Until then, watch the trailer below:
