Now that Billy Crystal has robbed the Muppets of their rightful place hosting the Academy Awards been given the job of hosting this year's Academy Awards, the hype to try to get the world excited about him has begun.

The Academy's first pro-Crystal effort is the following trailer, which was released yesterday and plays to everyone's loins by starring Josh Duhamel and Megan Fox. The one-minute video follows the duo as they seek out "the one they call 'The Host.'" They travel far and wide, encounter Robin Williams, and end up in Mongolia (because who really knows where Mongolia is, amirite?!). The video ends (spoiler alert!) with Crystal giving the camera a smile that somehow suggests that this is going to be the most boring Oscars ever.
