Smosh’s new movie takes them inside YouTube, literally, for a whirlwind adventure
The film’s first trailer puts YouTube in the forefront.
The guys of Smosh are coming to the big screen, by taking a deeper dive into the small screen.
In the trailer to the forthcoming Smosh: The Movie, Internet superstars Ian Hecox and Anthony Padilla play two dudes who are hoping to get YouTube to take down an embarrassing video. The only way to make the change, however, is to jump through a portal into the world of YouTube. There they encounter Web celebrities, video games, and exploding kittens on their quest to return home.
While other YouTubers are using films to leap them into new genres, Smosh puts YouTube front and center of their story, while adhering to the classic structure of two friends, on dare we say an “excellent adventure” just trying to get things back to normal in a fantastical world.
Smosh: The Movie premieres July 24, with a special screening in Anaheim during VidCon on the 23.
