After receiving a frustratingly brief – if not effective – debut teaser trailer, Christopher Guest’s upcoming mockumentary project for Netflix finally has some footage to check out. The above trailer introduces you to his latest cast of characters – including many familiar faces from his previous films, as well as some welcome additions. I mean, just look at this cast: Jane Lynch, Parker Posey, Fred Willard, Ed Begley, Jr., Christopher Moynihan, Don Lake, Brad Williams, Zach Woods, Chris O’Dowd, Susan Yeagley, Sarah Baker, Tom Bennett, Kerry Godliman, Bob Balaban, Jennifer Coolidge and more. Jesus, it’s a who’s who of funny people. The plot, is as follows (from Netflix’s YouTube description):

Mascots is a new comedy from Christopher Guest, director of Waiting for Guffman and Best in Show. Starring many of his regular troupe of actors, this latest film takes place in the ultra-competitive world of sports mascots where they compete for the most prestigious award in their field, the Gold Fluffy.

I’m going to be excited for a new Guest movie regardless of the trailer, but this looks pretty amusing and I’m always game for some O’Dowd hijinks. How do you feel about the new trailer? Will you be reaching for the play button when Mascots drops on Netflix October 13th, 2016?
