The last thing you would expect Tic and Tac: Rescue Rangers is a cameo from Paramount’s terrible first design for Sonic the Hedgehog. Still, here we are, with several different scenes that use Ugly Sonic to perfectly illustrate the madness of cameo culture, while ridiculing celebrity culture as a whole. Not since Angela Anaconda invaded the intro of Digimon: the movie was I so baffled by a crossover. It’s a weird way to end a week, that’s for sure.

In an age where movies are lauded for the cameos they can fit in and how well they can spark audience interest, the idea of using one of the worst designs in recent movie history as an incentive to draw people to your movie is pretty awesome. Not only does this prove we’ll be excited about anything we know makes an appearance in a movie (something I’m a victim of as well), but it also shows how ridiculous an idea really is.

Think about it, Ugly Sonic is trending in the middle of 2022. Does that make sense? Enough people use Ugly Sonic to make it go viral years after making waves for looking awful. It’s a cameo that pokes fun at cameos while really being a great use of them, as Ugly Sonic is stuck signing tongue-in-cheek autographs for teenagers to earn a living while everyone stares at his human teeth.

The fact that someone signed this is remarkable, and it’s great that they did. like movies like Doctor Strange and the Multiverse of Madness and free guy giving people the fan service they crave, getting tongue-in-cheek shots that keep us on our toes is just awesome.
