The sequel to the 2011 hit movie “The Smurfs” doesn’t arrive in theaters til the summer of 2013, but filmmakers may be test marketing their second flick’s plot in Australia. Tuesday, four Smurfs, estimated ages of 18 and 19, were arrested on charges of beating up a Melbourne man who’d given one of the Smurfs an unlit cigarette.
After watching the video, it’s comforting to know Australia television news is just as lame as American news.
Local police say the blue butt whooping of a thirty-seven-year man by teen-aged Smurfs happened after they asked the man for a cigarette then he refused to light it. What the smurf, dude? How are the Naughty Smurfs, Puffy, Bogart, Wheezy, and Ciggy going to puff, puff, pass?
According to wikipedia, the story of The Smurfs 2 has evil Garamel creating
“a couple of evil Smurf-like creatures called the Naughties to harness the magical Smurf-essenece. When he discovers that only a real Smurf can give him what he wants and that only Smurfette can turn the Naughties into the real Smurfs, Gargamel kidnaps Smurfette and takes her to Paris. Papa, Clumsy, Grouchy, and Vanity return to the human world and seek the help from their friends Patrick and Grace Winslow to rescue Smurfette.“
So, obviously Gargamel is way ahead of the game. He’s got four of them, they’re hanging and banging in Melbourne, Australia, trolling middle-aged dudes for cigs. You know what, this second movie has a chance to not suck.
Just in case this isn’t Hollywood or Garamel corrupting the lovable blue whatever they ares, Melbourne police will charge the four Smurfs with assault and see what Smurf scales of justice hold for them.
