The older Sonic fans among you may remember the rather daft single “Wonderman” by British Pop band Right Said Fred, released as promotion for Sonic the Hedgehog 3 way back in 1994. Baldy catwalk man Richard Fairbrass, lead singer of the band, let slip on the red carpet for an Olympics promotion event this evening, after a costumed Sonic and Mario joined them on the walk way, that the band had been drafted in to rework their hit song.
Fairbrass was quoted as saying:
“Funnily enough we’ll be seeing Sonic again soon! We’ve had loads of success in recent years with all the Daz adverts we’ve been in, but it’s just fab to go back to Sonic and rework one of our classic top 60 tracks – like us Sonic’s still hogging the limelight!”.
Jun Senoue, also attending a “Meet and Greet” event today following the two Crush 40 shows in Tokyo, told fans he was delighted to be involved in the production of the new track.
A tweet from the Crush 40 twitter account (translated from Japanese) read: “Yes – working with Cash Cash and RSF to remix a classic Sonic song. Johnny and I have worked on Crush 40 ver. also”.
It was also hinted that this track will feature on the Forthcoming C40 EP, titled “Apollo Rifs”. For those who haven’t seen it, here’s the video to Wonderman in all of it’s glory. Stay tuned for more news on these developments!
Update: Sorry to disappoint so many of you looking forward to this rather extrordinary collaboration…it is in fact an April fools, a rather dirty one at that! – T
