Wasn't it a parody? Why was licensing necessary?
Al’s kind of weird like that. He always offers to license the song, and if he doesn’t receive permission, he doesn’t record it (though he might play it live).
“Mentalfloss” said:
”Al does get permission from the original writers of the songs that he parodies," says the archived official "Weird Al" website. "He feels it's important to maintain the relationships that he's built with artists and writers over the years. Plus, Al wants to make sure that he gets his songwriter credit (as writer of new lyrics) as well as his rightful share of the royalties."
From the Normal Al wiki on “refused parodies:”
Coolio claimed that he had actually refused permission and disliked his song being parodied (though he didn't pursue legal action). [...] Coolio and Al apparently made up at a trade show in 2006, and in 2014 Coolio said in an interview, "I was being cocky and shit and being stupid and I was wrong and I should've embraced that shit and went with it."
A class act, that Al.
Did Jim Carrey hit his head and revert back to his 90s self?
"my double is trying to kill me"
Wouldn’t that just be Me, Myself, and Irene?

Well folks, this is it. This is...a thing that exists. For some...reason.

If I were Coolio, I wouldn't be happy having Gansta's Paradise attached to...whatever this is.

At least it's economic and shows us the end credit scene already in the trailer.


Oh god, I saw still images from the trailer. It looks even more horrible.:eek:



<internal scream>

The only thing I liked was the rings in the Paramount logo.

I'm kind of amazed they're going with the Sonic vs national security route from the 3D games.

Why the fuck doesn't Sonic have gloves?!?!? He has shoes, what was so different about the gloves that they decided against them but kept the shoes, tiny though they may be.

That looks like it will go from the theaters straight to streaming within a week or so of release.

I'm not excusing anything from that trailer but in terms of the giant rings being used to teleport, that's how you went to the secret stages in a few of the games so there is a bit of precedence for that at least.

Sonic himself is still nightmare inducing.

More like steaming (pile of poo), am I right? UP TOP!

And that design is the movie's cement shoes. The trailer looks like any other forgettable albeit '90s-ish kids movie that would do decent and please some people.

But to paraphrase Jim Sterling, because there's no point dancing around it, Sonic is a monster. He's a horrible little monster.

And to add a complication, I'm pretty sure that the record label that had ownership of Gangsta's Paradise *did* give permission for Weird Al to use it, whether Coolio approved it or not. Weird Al was definitely under the impression that Coolio had been okay with it until the Grammys, though.

Why... Why did they give him human teeth... I get he has flat teeth in the games but they sure were not going for the game look with whatever he is. What the fuck... His teeth are freaking me out.
