terrifying

E.T. fuckin’ terrifies me. It always has. I’m glad to know that I’m not alone in this, because apparently Rob at Topless Robot feels the same way. It all started when I was in my first year of kindergarten and my teacher decided it would be a great idea to show a bunch of 4 and 5 year-olds this goddamn horrific movie. I still have no idea what happens in that film other than that E.T. is a fuckin’ creeper and wanted to phone home.

So, apparently, The National Entertainment Collectibles Association, Inc. (NECA) has decided that, for the 30th anniversary of E.T., they will be producing a bunch of shit for it. Figures, plushies, toys, the works. What the fuck. Way to pass along the terror to future generations… I don’t understand why this thing is so popular! Didn’t it just have an anniversary not long ago? Gah.

This promo was hanging out on Disney.com for a while, but it’s now found its way over to YouTube. The Muppets will be released in the US on November 23, 2011, so keep your eyes out for this ish soon! (I’ve actually always been terrified of the Muppets so it’s totally not my thing. But whatevs.)

Hit the jump to be graced with four new posters for this flick in their full-sized glory.
