The original Wet Hot American Summer was already a throwback, to 1980s camp movies, and now the prequel Wet Hot American Summer: First Day of Camp is going even further back into the past. (By about two months, but still.) So it seems only appropriate that the latest Wet Hot American Summer First Day of Camp trailer would also look like a relic of bygone times.
There’s actual new footage in this promo, featuring all your favorite Camp Firewood counselors like Paul Rudd, Amy Poehler, Bradley Cooper, and Elizabeth Banks. But you almost wouldn’t know it from the fuzzy VHS style. Watch the Wet Hot American Summer First Day of Camp trailer after the jump.
Netflix shared the new Wet Hot American Summer First Day of Camp trailer on YouTube. That voiceover sounds suspiciously like a talking can of mixed vegetables, right?
