Back in 2013, a young teen by the internet handle of SammyClassicSonyFan had posted up a video ranting about the Sonic the Hedgehog game franchise. His shrill anger had somehow gone viral, and he had become a somewhat famous meme on the internet. Seeing as how Sammy is so passionate about Sonic the Hedgehog, he just posted up this video of him coming out of the newly released Sonic film.
Check him out:
Just in case you missed out, here’s the original video from seven years ago that Sammy put up where he rants about the "frickin’ fricks" who’ve ruined Sonic. He’s angry and shrill for the whole thing, but the clip that became the meme starts at 2:50:
If anything, a lot of people were wondering what this guy’s reaction was to the original Sonic trailer which was largely reviled by the internet. I mean, if Sammy can get this passionate about the games, I wonder what he would have to say about the film when it showed us that first look last year.
Going back to the movie though, it looks like Sammy liked it, and being an unofficial mascot(?) of the Sonic fanbase, I guess it’s safe to say that fans of the game will enjoy this movie as well. We don’t know if he’ll ever rant about Sonic again, but it sure is fun to see an internet celebrity “come back from the dead.”
Sonic tries to navigate the complexities of life on Earth with his newfound best friend -- a human named Tom Wachowski. They must soon join forces to prevent the evil Dr. Robotnik from capturing Sonic and using his powers for world domination.
Sonic the Hedgehog is now out in theaters.
