Watch: The Happytime Murders coins NSFW term for bad moviegoers

The Happytime Murders’ puppetry isn’t here to play nice. Its schtick is that it doesn’t — it's no Sesame Street — and is, in fact, as gross, sexual, and nasty as possible. But there’s one thing the upcoming Melissa McCarthy film won’t stand for: talking in movies.

In a new PSA cut for Alamo Drafthouse, Goofer (voice of Drew Massey) explains the theater chain’s notoriously strict policy on in-movie distractions in terms that only an R-rated puppet movie revelling in its R-rating could.

Warning: this video is not safe for work. Its whole point is one profane term. Don’t have it shouted over your speakers in the middle of your office.

If you’re not at work — or you’re sure you’re not going to get overheard in a coffee shop — you can watch the video below:

“People will no longer be your friend,” Goofer says of the “movief***ers.” But that’s not all that will happen to those that deign to talk in the sacred rows of a movie theater. “You’ll be shunned by society and forced to live in a cardboard box. You’ll get hooked on hard candy and then you’ll spiral into a puddle of shame and regret.” Hopefully none of that regret stems from seeing the Joel McHale, Maya Rudolph, and Elizabeth Banks comedy.

The Happytime Murders addresses all moviegoers, regardless of whether they talk or not, with its parodic puppets on Aug. 24th.
