Community Season Three Promo: Do I sense a 'Glee' parody in the works?

The first promo for Community's third season is here, and things are looking just as crazy (and hilarious) as ever. Check out the short version of the promo below; a longer version can be found on Community's Facebook page.

I'm really excited about all the John Goodman goodness present here. It certainly looks like Dan Harmon and the writers are using the man's bulk and voice to great comedic effect, and it will be great to see him square off against Dean Pelton (Jim Rash, who got promoted to series regular this year!). I wish we could have seen a little Michael K. Williams (The Wire's Omar, for those of you who aren't awesome enough to know that), but I'll take what I can get at this point.

I'm also really hoping that the elaborate musical number teased in the longer trailer indicates a full-length Glee parody. I've enjoyed the good-natured Glee mockery we've seen in several episodes up to this point, including the first paintball episode, the flashback episode, and Jeff's memorable exclamation of, "I hate Glee! I don't understand the appeal at all!" I'm excited to see what the show can do with a full-on parody.
