Please Enjoy This NSFW International Trailer For BAYWATCH

Bikinis, chiseled abs and casual swearing, as far as the eye can see.

When the first trailer for Baywatch arrived last month, the general consensus seemed to be, "Well, that certainly looks like a watered-down version of 21 Jump Street", but it was big and colorful and it's physically impossible not to be charmed by The Rock, so we all grudgingly admitted that we'd probably go see it, anyway.

Now there's a new Baywatch trailer (an international one, which means it is very fancy) and, well, I think we're right back to square one.

Love the cast. Love how colorful it all is. Love the commitment these performers have to what's clearly a ridiculous premise. But it's impossible to shake the feeling that Baywatch is biting 21 Jump Street's material, and it's doubly concerning that none of this looks particularly ... y'know, funny? I want to be into this, but I've flatlined during both Baywatch trailers.

Maybe the really funny stuff is too raunchy for marketing purposes? Maybe they're saving all the good stuff for audiences who show up on opening night? Or, I dunno, maybe Baywatch just isn't going to be all that funny but we'll all go see it, anyway, because it obviously isn't taking itself too seriously and there are definitely worse things we could subject ourselves to for 90 minutes. 

We'll find out when Baywatch opens on May 17th.
