The Trailer for Netflix's Wet Hot American Summer Prequel is a Beautiful VHS Ad

by Eric Thurm
Practically everything about Netflix's upcoming Wet Hot American Summer prequel series is ridiculous and almost impossible to believe -- somehow, a large portion of the original cast came back to play even younger versions of themselves. Now, the first trailer for the series is here, confirming that it will be even more insane and than we might have expected. Presented as an old VHS-quality commercial for Camp Firewood narrated by H. Jon Benjamin (who gets to say the word "archery"), the trailer gives us a peek at some of the absurd activities at the camp -- most notably street dancing -- but not much about what the characters were up to at this point in their insane lives, other than a quick insert of what appears to be a porno. Good work, team -- we're excited to get to know you when First Day of Camp premieres July 31.
