April Fools is a really fun holiday on the internet. This year, the folks at the upcoming end of the world comedy This is the End put together a fake trailer.

Since This is the End features a bunch of stars playing themselves, including Pineapple Express leads James Franco and Seth Rogen, the marketing team thought it was a funny idea to poorly shoot a fake trailer for Pineapple Express 2. It actually is pretty clever marketing for the comedy.

The film also stars Jonah Hill, Jay Baruchel, Danny McBride, Craig Robinson, Emma Watson, Michael Cera, Jason Segel, David Krumholtz, Paul Rudd, Mindy Kaling, Martin Starr, Kevin Hart, Rihanna, Aziz Ansari, and the Backstreet Boys.

The plot involves Jonah Hill, Seth Rogen, Jay Baruchel, Danny McBride and Craig Robinson going to James Franco’s house while the world is ending. Excited yet?

Check out the preview below, and be sure to catch This is the End in theaters June 14.

UPDATE: After the fake trailer this morning, the producers revealed an actual trailer for This is the End, and it is legitimately really funny. Check that out below the April Fools gag. Just beware, it is a red band trailer.
