The trailer (video below) actually shows Alvin eating Theodore’s crap. First of all, there’s nothing funny about eating crap. Secondly, the whole point of trailer is entice people to go see it by showing its best parts. I’d shudder to think what the runner up for the trailer was. And finally, it’s just completely out of character. Family Guy’s cartoon dog Brian may be able to pull off speaking one second and then licking himself the next but the Chipmunks are established characters. Could you imagine Scooby Doo licking himself or better yet humping Shaggy’s leg.
Of course not these beloved characters have always human first, animal second. Hell the original Chipmunks didn’t even looked chipmunks. The only reason for their animal form was sheer cuteness but now look at them they’re freaking chipmunks!
Even worse, judging from the poster they’re going gangsta now. God help us if the Chipettes are in this, which they very well might be as the cast list includes: female intern #1, #2, & #3. Chipmunk hoochies is a very disturbing thought indeed.
