The Gremlins are back, although only on the small screen. This isn't perhaps the outing that fans of the Gremlins film would be wanting, but it is a reminder that they're around and it also might act as a little nudge to Hollywood to remember just how funny and entertaining these characters are.
There's a new television advert on British telly and apart from being pretty funny, it marks the return of those little critters...oh no, the Critters are something else.
The Gremlins have been hired alongside the nicer, human and intelligent face of the television programme Dragon's Den Peter Jones for a new British Telecom advert, and you can watch it right here:
I love that advert, and I love the shot of the Gremlin photocopying his bum and the others looking bemused at the prints, as well as the dancing on the keyboard - he's so proud when he finishes.
It's a bit of fun, and this is a nice free advert for BT - hope you're reading this! - but it is a reminder of just how fun the Gremlins are on screen, and this is under two minutes of them. I want to see them back in a feature film, what about you?
