The Trailer Park Boys[Trailer Park Boys Movie Teaser Trailer]

The upcoming Summer 2006 Trailer Park Boys movie teaser trailer features music by a familiar Canadian power trio. For those of you who don't know, The Trailer Park Boys is a Canadian TV series where the main characters are big Rush fans. Here's some info courtesy the Power Windows site:

* Aired May 18th, 2003: "Bubbles is so devastated about not getting tickets to the RUSH concert that Ricky decides to bring Alex Lifeson (played by Alex Lifeson) to the park to perform a private concert." One scene of the episode was filmed during the October 22nd, 2002, Vapor Trails concert at Toronto's Air Canada Centre, as actor Mike Smith, who portrays Bubbles on the Nova Scotia, Canada, based comedy series, was filmed playing the part of a Rush roadie. As he walked on stage to hand Alex a new guitar, Geddy told the crowd "he is a new guy." Actor Mike Smith commented "I was a bit nervous up there. I mean, it's dark, and I can't see, and I'm stepping over cables and stuff...Alex is a big fan of the show...Alex came to us and asked to do a cameo. The director was like, 'No, but why don't we write a whole episode based around you?' And he was totally into that. So we flew him out to Halifax and we shot with him for three days and had really great times. He's a really amazing person." - ( Oct. 28, 2002). The final scene of the episode features Alex and Bubbles playing "Closer To The Heart" on dual acoustic guitars.
* "You Got To Blame The Thing Up Here" (aired May 8th, 2005): At the beginning of the episode there are some people standing around Ricky's dad's burned down trailer. One of guys in the backround is wearing the black Rush 30th anniversary "Party" t-shirt with the dragon on the front.
