The Happytime Murders aims to be the raunchiest — and we will see once the film opens August 24th if it’s also the funniest — puppet movie since Team America: World Police. The film stars Melissa McCarthy as a human cop who’s partnered with a puppet cop to investigate the murders of former cast members of The Happytime Gang, a long-cancelled show in the vein of The Muppets.
The movie’s distributor, STXfilms, teamed with marketing agency Giant Spoon and Henson Alternative to create a pop-up activation in Hollywood called The InkHole. It’s meant to be a seedy tattoo parlor with a secret speakeasy inside where puppets and humans take a walk on the wild side.
The InkHole is open to members of the public (21 and over) from August 10th-13th and is located at 1723 N. Hudson Ave, Hollywood, CA 90028.
