A fake trailer is a type of fanvid styled after movie trailers. Most commonly, the vidder inserts a ship (usually their OTP) into a constructed reality, making it into a movie trailer (sometimes complete with a MPAA rating screen at the beginning).
The most prevalent type of fake trailers is a romantic comedy trailer. The music and the construction of the vid follows the regular conventions, introducing the characters before introducing the premise and the title.

- The Profound Bond -- A new romantic comedy starring Jensen Ackles and Misha Collins. When Federal Agent Dean Winchester gets paired with an angel as part of the Bureau’s new Human-Angel Cooperation Initiative, the partnership seems less than ideal.
