'Hunger Games' Parody Trailer Goes Viral (Video)
Peeta's cake decorating skills, Katniss' obsession with trees and Gale's hotness are skewered.
The Hunger Games has sold nearly 4 million DVDs and Blu-ray discs since hitting stories last week, but not everyone thinks the film lives up to the hype.
A video from Honest Trailers, which purports to advertise films as they really are, takes issue with Katniss’ (Jennifer Lawrence) ability to outwit other tributes by hanging out in trees and Peeta’s (Josh Hutcherson) ridiculously detailed cake decorating skills, and asks why the "much hotter" Gale (Liam Hemsworth) is not Katniss’ first choice.
Amassing more than a quarter of a million plays, the parody trailer mercilessly raises a slew of additional questions moviegoers may have been asking themselves, including plot points from Suzanne Collins' novel that didn't make it to the big screen. (Where's the avox?)
