The Black Keys fool IMDB.com with fake movie trailer

HollywoodNews.com: The Black Keys, who are up for four Grammy Awards today, tricked nearly everyone—even movie website IMDB.com—with their latest comedic shenanigan: a music video-turned-movie trailer.

The blues-rock outfit released a faux trailer for a feature-length film titled, “Howlin’ For You”—which is also the name of a track off Brothers, their 2010 record that marked the band’s breakthrough from cult favorite to widespread recognition. Set to the song’s hard-edged guitars and pummeling drumbeat, the trailer is three minutes worth of classic B-movie fare that would have Quentin Tarantino and Robert Rodriguez applauding. The trailer tells the story of a sexy female assassin who’s something akin to a black widow spider: She seduces men and then kills them post-coital, mostly because of daddy issues stemming from her childhood.

Although the story and characters are overwrought, the trailer fooled enough people to take it somewhat seriously. Movie website IMDB even posted the “Howlin’ For You” trailer on in its featured trailers section on the front page. But, seeing as Hollywood will make (or remake) almost anything these days, The Black Keys’ “Howlin’ For You” video might just be campy enough to work.
