Have Sonic Blare Your Favorite Music With This New Plush

Ever wanted to make Jimmy Buffet classic “Cheeseburger in Paradise” play out of a Sonic thing? Or how about “Defying Gravity” from the Broadway musical hit Wicked? Maybe “Crazy Noisey Bizarre Town,” objectively the best Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure anime opening? Well good news, because now you can play these and more from a new Sonic plush currently only available in Mexico!

Images for this plush have been slowly circulating online, but our source is twitter account @SONICJENNY, who also seems to have the most images. This new Sonic plush and speaker features Bluetooth capability with a range of ten feet, as well as an audio cable input, a USB port, and an SD cart slot, so you’ll be able to play music on it with just about anything. Going by SONICJENNY’s twitter thread, the plush is around a foot long, has speakers in its feet, and sells for around $50. Check out the images below:

As of this writing, we are not aware of any way to obtain this plush online, as it seems to only be available via physical stores in Mexico. Even the manufacturer does not appear to be obvious from the packaging.

Hopefully, this plush will eventually be available elsewhere, so we can all enjoy the 1986 hit “Rock Me Amadeus” by Falco through a cute Sonic plush doll.

New Crush 40 album in the works for 2016

4563CRUSH40 fans who follow the official Johnny Gioeli facebook page will have noticed a recent surge in activity as Mr. Gioeli has become more involved its running.

During a recent Q&A post, Johnny hinted that a new Crush40 album is being worked on, and is due for launch next year. The album will be the band’s second studio album (and the first in over a decade), and would follow the band’s recent success through the release of two live albums, a “best of” and an EP in 2012.

In the wake of several live shows in the US, Japan, and Mexico, Johnny alluded to potential live shows in 2016. Although it is currently unclear as to whether or not any of the tracks featured on the new album will be connected to future Sonic the Hedgehog titles, it has lead many to speculate as to the correlation of the album release with the 25th anniversary celebrations.

Stay tuned for more information as it comes to light!
