New 'Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles' trailer set to 'Shell Shocked'

Posted on

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles

If nothing else, let this mark the first time you’ve heard an anthropomorphic turtle shout “woo” between the words “Wu “and “Tang.”

A new trailer for Paramount’s upcoming Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles finds the four adolescent amphibians fighting crime to the tune of “Shell Shocked” by Wiz Khalifa, Juicy J, and Ty Dolla $ign, which was released just yesterday.

Once you recover from being, well, shell-shocked by the very existence of both this song and the video it’s paired with, take a moment to reflect on the fact that combining rap and TMNT has been done before.

Now you can answer yes to Vanilla Ice’s crucial question: “Have you ever seen a turtle get down?” Did you want to, though? Well, that’s a more difficult call.

Directed by Jonathan Liebesman (Battle: Los Angeles) and produced by Michael Bay (Transformers), Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles stars Will Arnett, Tony Shalhoub, and Megan Fox. It hits theaters August 8.
