Sonic the Hedgehog

The first official trailer for the feature length Sonic the Hedgehog film has people feeling nostaligic, and questioning it's use of Coolio's classic hit 'Gangsta's Paradise.'

90s kids will fondly remember growing up playing Sonic games on prehistoric early games console the SEGA Megadrive - the one where you needed to blow on the games to make it work.

The film stars Jim Carrey, reprising the comedic wit that we’ve seen in films such as The Mask and Ace Ventura: Pet Detective.

Though this isn’t where the nostalgia stops.

Especially when you consider the song was originally made famous as the soundtrack for the 1995 film Dangerous Minds starring Michelle Pheiffer.

Many have taken to Twitter to discuss the song choice. Some have even called out the film for “ruining” the song.

Though the song choice wasn’t the only complaint. We’ll just… Leave this here.

Alrighty then.
