Some celebrities are so recognizable, so iconic, they only require one name: Oprah. Bono. Madonna. Prince. Cher. Beck. Beyonce. It was only a matter of time before two of today's biggest singularly-named phenomenons joined forces to become one unstoppable force: Madea and Snooki.
MTV has exclusively snagged the new poster for Tyler Perry's latest venture, "Madea's Big Happy Family" which features the actor/writer/director/producer dressed as Georgia Shore, a character that's an obvious nod to "Jersey Shore" star Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi.
Check out the full poster past the jump!
Though Perry has moved Snooki from the "Jersey Shore" to Georgia Shore, he's kept her "Don't Be Hatin'" philosophy firmly intact for when the new movie arrives in theaters on April 22. After all, anybody can dress up like Snooks (the past two Halloweens have been proof positive of that), but really, isn't it all about the 'tude?
Plus, Snooki and Madea have more in common than one might think. Perry's titular character went to prison in 2009's "Madea Goes To Jail" while Snooki has had her own, er, run-ins with the law. Madea is fiercely protective of her brood (the "Big Happy Family" had a "Family Reunion" in 2006) and Snooki will staunchly defend anyone who steps to her Seaside Heights crew.
While we're partial to the Snooki ad, Perry has released a variety of other parody shots, including Madea mimicking classic movie posters like those for "The Godfather," "True Grit," and "Black Swan." But in the end, as all things do, it all comes back to Snooki.
