It’s hard to believe that “Twerking” is an accepted national cultural phenomenon. In fact these days it’s being used as a trick to try and win over the millennials. Or at least that what it seems like the new trailer for the animated feature “Trolls” is doing.
Trolls, you know, those fluorescent toys that somehow managed to toe the line between creepy and amazing throughout your childhood? Yes, those Trolls now have their own movie. And this isn’t some low budget thing we’re talking about. We’re talking a cast played by the likes of Anna Kendrick, Justin Timberlake and Gwen Stefani.
In the trailer, the voiceover tells us that these aren’t your average trolls because “they sing, they dance and they have lots of fun.” Recently, the cast took to Twitter this January to introduce the world to their troll counterparts Poppy, Branch and DJ Suki. Yup, there’s a troll named DJ Suki and it’s, of course, played by Gwen Stefani.
After seeing this trailer are you going to see the movie or are you still sucking your thumb in agony like I am?
