Kid Rock, Dale Earnhardt Jr. and The Army National Guard are invading your cinema previews this September and October. I found this out when Kristen and I went to see Tropic Thunder this past weekend at the Garden in Greenfield, Massachusetts. With lyrics like, “Freedom ain’t so free” and “citizen soldier”, and some dramatic guitar solos… plus the fact that we were seeing a Ben Stiller movie– I actually thought it was a joke at first. But it’s not.
Kid Rock wrote the new song, ‘Warrior’, for a national recruitment campaign directed by Academy Award winning director, James Mangold for The National Guard. The commercial will air at movie theaters across the U.S. in September and October. Lucky you, moviegoer (and future recruit, I’m sure). To get you pumped up before basic training, why not dowload the song at NationalGuardWarrior.com

Ben Stiller, Jack Black, and Robert Downey Jr. made a “viral video” for the 2008 MTV Movie Awards to promote their upcoming movie, Tropic Thunder. I didn’t see the awards this year (which were somewhat close to a massive fire at universal studios), but I’m generally of the opinion that the best part of these types shows are these short sequences anyhow, so I don’t feel like I missed much since they’re on the internets.
As Scott Brodeur says on his BlogBeat post about this video, There is no more surefire punchline than the crotchkick. Tropic Thunder isn’t opening until August sometime, but I’m kind of psyched to see it.
