Madden NFL 16: Dave Franco, Christopher Mintz-Plasse star in trailer

Posted on

Thought last year’s Madden NFL 15 trailer with Kevin Hart and Dave Franco was wild? Check out the 2016 version.

EA Sports released this year’s cinematic promotion for Madden NFL 16, and it’s a sight to behold. Franco returns, but is joined by Christopher Mintz-Plasse in the cheesiest ’80s action movie never made.

The plot demands Franco’s character, the suave Blade Johnson, play super-bad bad guy in a game of Madden in order to save his girlfriend — and he needs help from his buddy Janet (Mintz-Plasse) and a cast of other heroes. Those being: NFL star Ron Gronkowski (who wears half of a tank top as Half Top); Julio Jones jets around, a la Falcon, as Trick Montalban; Antonio Brown’s Sticky Buns has glue-like hands; coach Rex Ryan looks normal, but is called Lil’ Pepper; and then Colin Kaepernick appears dressed like Al Pacino from Scent of a Woman… because he is Al Pacino from Scent of a Woman (the “hoo-ahs!” come with reckless abandon).

Watch above and get ready for the prehistoric plot twist. Madden NFL 16 is out Aug. 25.
