- The narrator lampshading the show's Anyone Can Die nature (while also noting that most cases are related to one famous Chronically Killed Actor)...Narrator: Ride along on an adventure where any lead character can die, whether you're Sean Bean, Sean Bean's wife, Sean Bean's best friend, Sean Bean's son, Sean Bean's daughter-in-law, Sean Bean's family dogs, or Sean Bean's unborn grandkid.

- Transformers: Age of Extinction (a.k.a. Transformers 4: Welcome to China)
- The last third of the trailer is spoken in Chinese to mock Bay's pandering to China.
- "In a franchise that's known for objectifying hot young women, prepare for a new low, as they make the movie's hot chick an underage girl, make her boyfriend a legal adult, and literally stop the movie to explain why it's okay for them to pork.

Stick that after the credits when everyone's expecting Avengers 2; it'll totally f*ck with our fans, and they'll love it anyways. Speaking of which, remember Thanos from that one scene at the end of The Avengers a few years ago? Well, we're bringing him back, and he's still not doing sh*t. Why? Because f*ck you, we're Marvel, that's why! What're you gonna do, watch DC? [clip of Superman screaming "No!"] Thought so!
