Question for Fanboys?

Don’t get me wrong, I like Quentin Tarantino. He makes interesting movies. And I’m into the Grindhouse vibe. But tell me this, is the trailer for Grindhouse all meta? Meaning, is it supposed to be lame and stupid because the Grindhouse movies of the past were kind of lame and stupid, in a stylized way? The chick says “Booya!” and Kurt Russel says “It’s About Time!” after the announcer says “Critics love Grindhouse”. So debate – did Tarantino make a crappy trailer because Grindhouse trailers are supposed to be crappy?
