Megan Fox, Josh Duhamel Hunt Down Billy Crystal in First Oscar TV Ad

When it was announced that beloved Oscar host Billy Crystal would be returning to shepherd the 84th Annual Academy Awards next month (after a brief flirtation with Eddie Murphy that was torpedoed by the overwhelming schmuck-ness of fired producer Brett Ratner), we all knew what was coming: Skillfully-edited movie parodies!

Turns out Crystal is not about to flip the script, as evidenced by this new TV ad for the Oscar telecast. Promoting a fake movie called "Off the Grid," it's a star-studded spoof that, well, does kind of hit you like a warm hot chocolate. Maybe not the edgiest drink in the world, but oddly comforting.

"Starring" Josh Duhamel, Megan Fox, Vinnie Jones, William Fichtner, and Robin Williams, it has us eagerly-awaiting February 26th.

The 84th Annual Academy Awards will be shown live Sunday, February 26th at 7 ET on ABC.
