The new TV spot for Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles featured last night during a commercial break for the MTV Movie Awards gave use lots of action and lots of characters in a short clip. Now all four turtles are present, including the previously unseen Raphael, as well as their sensei, Master Splinter. The spot doesn’t feature a great look at Splinter but he’s there nonetheless wielding a badass katana.
It may have only been a 30 second TV spot for the upcoming movie, set to release August 8th, but every single detail was enough to trigger a nostalgia induced frenzy: Raphael being surly and beating up baddies, Donatello does machines, and Michelangelo riding a rocket skateboard.
