Hot on the heels of yesterday’s Toy Story 4 teaser, Disney and Pixar are already back with another trailer of sorts: a “trailer reaction” video, just like the ones made by what feels like every single YouTuber ever in response to the initial teaser.
Of course, Pixar’s reaction video has a little more star power, and it takes the time to introduce new characters: Ducky and Bunny. Voiced by comedy duo Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele, the two spend less time actually reacting to yesterday’s teaser and are more concerned with relentlessly mocking Buzz Lightyear’s iconic “To infinity — and beyond!” catchphrase with pithy variations like “To infinity — and your mom!” in what is essentially a PG version of a Key & Peele sketch.
It’s a savvy move from whatever Gen Z Disney marketing associate thought up the scheme: releasing a video titled “Toy Story 4 | Teaser Trailer Reaction” on YouTube will probably suck up all that search engine SEO from the apparently thousands of people looking for that content. Good work, corporate marketing machine!
Toy Story 4 will hit theaters on June 21st, 2019.
