Flamingos Vs. Meerkats: Who Will Triumph?
Who is going to be the next penguin? I mean, what animal group is going to be the next cool animal group? I already told you about the "Meerkat Manor" movie spinoff. Now, Variety reports that Disney is filming a nature documentary about the life cycle of flamingos in Northern Tanzania. It sounds cool except for this idiotic statement from one of the directors Mathew Aeberhard who said he wants the film "to target a younger, hipper audience than wildlife films generally attract, and provoke a more visceral reaction." A younger, hipper audience? What exactly does he intend to do? Put Arctic Monkeys on the soundtrack?
