Here we go: The first trailer for the 86th annual Academy Awards has arrived. Directed by Paul Feig, the Oscars trailer features host Ellen DeGeneres leading a dance mob through the streets of a backlot while lip-dubbing along with "The Walker" by Fitz and the Tantrums. (It's an ear warm, so listen to the whole song here.)
So, that's great. The Oscars' website also released behind-the-scenes videos from the shoot, including a really charming and touching explanation for the trailer from Feig:

The Oscars trailer also recalls the "Girls Versus Suits" musical number from Season 5 of "How I Met Your Mother," which only makes it more legendary.
The Academy Awards, with DeGeneres as host, will take place on March 2, 2014.
