He announces ''Scrubs'' is back to general rejoicing, then adds "By the way, these people are [[TheReptilians lizards]]."

So you're in the movie theatre, the house lights are coming down, and the screen lights up with the previews of coming attractions. After the standard green MPAA Trailer Approved To Accompany This Feature slate, the screen shows a dark city full of foreboding, while the announcer intones about heady topics like crime running rampant or [[HoldingOutForAHero a city crying out for help]]. On a rooftop, a shadowy figure emerges. It could only be a certain Dark Knight...and then the figure is revealed!

A Trailer Spoof is when a trailer will try to hook your attention by pretending to be a trailer for a well known movie franchise, or a highly-anticipated blockbuster film. Then anywhere from half-way to three quarters through comes TheReveal: it's actually a trailer for a perhaps not-so-anticipated comedy movie. (It's almost always some form of comedy, dramas and straight action/adventure films take themselves too seriously to try this sort of thing.)
