Oh yeah, baby: That’s certainly Mike Myers in the new Gong Show trailer

ABC has just released the first trailer for its upcoming Gong Show reboot, offering fans plenty of glimpses of new host “Tommy Maitland,” i.e., Mike Myers doing a character that sounds kind of like a hybrid of Austin Powers, and a grown-up version of his old Simon character from Saturday Night Live. Myers’ bizarre, catchphrase-laden performance isn’t the only thing The Gong Show trailer has to offer, though; there’s also plenty of celebrity guests, including Ed Helms, Ken Jeong, and executive producer Will Arnett, and a bunch of would-be superstars willing to face the wrath of the big, judgmental gong. The series premieres on June 22 on ABC.
