There is something so very wrong, something so annoying and something just so sacrilegious about messing with a classic. Like trying to colorize Casablanca, adding in a random characters to a beloved TV show (yeah, I’m talking about you Scrappy Doo) or putting sunglasses on the Mona Lisa. And now there is another example of this misguided guise to modernize something that’s been around for a while. Having Charlie Brown rap. Yes rap.
For the promotion of the Thursday night airing of the beloved It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown the promotion people at ABC added in a thumping beat, scratching and Charlie Brown with an urban flair. Check out the ad below. What do you think? Hit or miss?
