The 50 Shades of Buscemi trailer is a hilarious riff on the popular book and movie series that incorporates footage from many of Buscemi's cult classic films as well as shots from his role in Boardwalk Empire, placing him in the role of the troubled Christian Grey.

Just in time for Valentine's Day, 50 Shades of Buscemi is a hilarious that highlights just how exaggeratedly cold the male lead of the Fifty Shades of Grey series is portrayed, especially in the trailer.

A refreshing take on the series, 50 Shades of Buscemi works in the favor of the real series' marketing efforts, as in paying homage to one of pop cultures best loved icons, the spoof is almost an exercise in cross-branding, potentially bringing images of the trailer to audiences who would not normally be exposed without the satirical presence of Buscemi.
