Paramount Pictures Anticipates Yearlong Project Of Picking Up Rings After Sonic The Hedgehog Backlash
Today, following the internet backlash to the new Sonic the Hedgehog trailer, the president of Paramount Pictures announced the company's yearlong project to pick up golden rings from around their office. The company took a huge hit due to the negative response, resulting in the loss of millions of rings.
“People are going to have to come in on weekends, there are just so many rings,” said Wyck Godfrey. The Ring Pick Up Project will coincide with Jeff Fowler and his team’s attempt to redesign the Sonic character before the movie’s release in November.
Analysts close to the situation estimate that Paramount lost nearly five rings for every negative tweet and 10 rings for every dislike on the trailer on YouTube. They are still attempting to calculate the exact number, but the avalanche of negative comments continues to pile on.
“The worst part of this was really the sound effect. Just constant dinging for 12 hours. I was in hell,” said animator Dewy Chandler. “And I had already seen hell when I saw the first mockup of the Sonic character.”
Scientists says the company must work fast to secure the rings because they will only be attainable for a short amount of time.
“Those rings help contribute to my 401k. I might lose everything. All because people didn’t like a character design for a movie they probably won’t even see,” said Fowler. At press time, Fowler and his team were seen painstakingly removing each of Sonic’s teeth, which took them five months to animate.
