Elizabeth Banks plays a stripper who knows her way around both a pole and a carrot in an exclusive, hare-raising clip from “The Happytime Murders,” a puppet-filled murder mystery opening in theaters Friday.
Directed by Brian Henson, the raunchy action-comedy follows a human police detective (repeat Stern Show guest Melissa McCarthy) who teams up with a puppet private investigator (Bill Barretta) to track down a serial killer targeting the cast of a popular ‘80s show, “The Happytime Gang.” Among those in the killer’s crosshairs is Jenny (Banks), who works as an exotic dancer in the exclusive clip (above).
The clip begins with Jenny swinging around a pole, much to the excitement of a group of horny rabbits sitting stage-side. “We're not in the briar patch anymore, boys,” one rabbit yells just before she grabs ahold of their carrot.
“You want some carrot, huh?” Banks’ character asks them seductively as she furiously peels it all over them.
“It feels like Easter in my pants!” one rabbit responds before the climactic moment in which she “bites the tip” … of his carrot.
