If you've watched any TV of late you've likely caught the above trailer for Campaign, the election-season send-up starring Will Ferrell and Zach Galifianakis as rival congressional candidates in the South.
The movie opens August 10, and to promote it, its stars will travel to DFW on Wednesday, and no doubt make the day of the troops at Fort Worth's Naval Air Station Joint Reserve Base. They'll do some media -- Mixmaster's in-house film geek, James Wallace, will be there and report back -- and then play tug-of-war with the troops. The event isn't open to the public, but I'm sure you won't have a problem sneaking in.
