With all the talk of Miley twerking and what not, a lot of the smaller moments that occurred during Sunday night's 2013 MTV Video Music Awards got lost in the sauce. One such moment was the new trailer for VH1's upcoming TLC biopic CrazySexyCool: The TLC Story. Though I still have our doubts about whether Drew Sidora, Lil Mama and Keke Palmer will be believable as Tionne "T-Boz" Watkins, Lisa "Left Eye" Lopes and Rozonda "Chilli" Thomas, I must say that the trailers have got me anticipating it. Even better, while the two-minute teaser the network premiered a month ago mainly gave us a look at the classic videos they faithfully recreated, the new 30-second spot packs much more of a substantial punch.
Though they are fleeting glimpses, we see key moments in the TLC lore, including the girls' discovery by Pebbles (Rochelle Aytes), Chilli sharing a kiss with Dallas Austin (Evan Ross) and, of course, the infamous bathtub full of sneakers and a lit match that led to a literal and figurative firestorm for Left Eye. While our expectations aren't exactly high (VH1's biopics for Michael Jackson and MC Hammer both left a lot to be desired), I'd venture to say that this looks like it actually has the potential to be pretty damn good (can you tell I'm cautiously optimistic?). Check out the trailer below and look for the film to drop on VH1 on October 21st.
