Alvin and the Chipmunks publicity begins
So a new poster for Alvin and the Chipmunks. Hitting the cinemas here at the end of the year, it's certainly worth looking forward to, or is it?
The '80s was a long time ago and we were a whole lot younger then, so our memory could be hazy, but we remember sitting down watching a cartoon with cheery overgrown rodents with vibrant t-shirts, who liked to sing wholesome pop ditties, going by the names of Simon, Alvin, Theodore, Doo-Doo Do-Do-Di-Doo .. ok I'll *stop* with the singing.
A worthy questioning of the updated chipmunks from Empire Online with regards to something we probably wouldn't associate with the lovable vermin:
We do not remember being terrified that said rodents might jump us behind the youth centre and relieve us of our milk money (why are they hiding their faces and sneering at us?) Of course, we understand that this kind of series has to be updated, y'know, for kids. But these are scary hoodies. Big, giant mouse-like hoodies and they frighten the wiggins out of us.
If they still have the title song from the cartoon, I'm sold. Looking forward to it already, admittedly, this is the first I've heard of it. Here's hoping they don't ruin fond memories. Fingers-crossed.
