Kick-Ass_viral promotion

Admit it, at some time or another you’ve all wanted to be a hero. Now you can put all those years of aspirations and training in your bedroom to good use, because, Kick-Ass and Justice Forever need your help! Sort of.

Now that Jim Carrey has stepped back from the promotion of Kick-Ass 2, Universal Pictures needs another way to help promote their comic book adapted movie. And the solution is simple: a viral video of campaign (probably made before Carrey stepped back) featuring Kick-Ass 2 star Aaron Taylor-Johnson as Kick-Ass recruiting you into the super group Justice Forever. Check it out it the video below.

That’s it? 19 seconds of Kick-Ass  trying to convince you to become a hero? Well, just tell me where to send the non-existent self-addressed envelope with my parents money jammed inside and sign me up! In all seriousness, though, it’s a funny little video and a nice way to promote Kick-Ass 2 even without the support of one of the films biggest stars. Although, if they’re doing one for Justice Forever, how long until we’re seeing Christopher Mintz-Plasse in his Mother Fucker persona promoting the Toxic Mega-Cunts? Maybe very soon.

Kick-Ass 2 is in theaters everywhere August 16th.
