Early last year, the world saw the first trailer for the Sonic the Hedgehog movie and we got our first look at what the blue blur would finally look like on the silver screen. To say that fans, non-fans, and society in general had a very negative reaction to what was shown onscreen would be a gross understatement.

When the original trailer for the Sonic Movie debuted in April this year, there was… a lot of material to work with, let’s just say. It was pretty common to see snapshots of Sonic’s teeth or dumbfounded expression across the Internet, and it was just as common to see it Photoshopped to be the butt of some joke.
Now, thanks to the new trailer that recently dropped (to some pretty high praise), the Internet has more material to work with, but with a much less “meme-able” design, is it still possible to poke fun at the Sonic Movie? The answer is “yes, absolutely!” Sit back and grab some popcorn (or a chili dog!), because here are our favourites we’ve found on Twitter: Continue reading Our Favourite Sonic Movie Memes on Twitter
