The Oscar host has been taking shots at some blockbusters of years past as well, with last week's promo poking fun at James Bond's classic martini order. ABC has released a new promo today, featuring Seth MacFarlane entering The Matrix, making a humorous connection to the "blue pill" and a certain "performance enhancing" drug. Go deep down the rabbit hole with this latest video for The Academy Awards ceremony, airing Sunday, February 24 on ABC.
