This ‘Yogi Bear’ Poster Gave Me Nightmares

During my routine perusal of nerd news blog Topless Robot yesterday, I came across this startling new poster for Warner Bros. CGI/live-action Yogi Bear movie, which hits theaters later this year. Now, I’d seen the trailer for this sure-to-be trainwreck earlier in the week, and it initially seemed as tame, innocuous and easy-to-ignore as other CGI/live-action cartoon revivals such as Scooby Doo and Alvin and the Chipmunks. But after absorbing the poster’s imagery, character positioning and verbiage (“Great things come in bears.”) over the last 24 hours or so, I’m convinced that Warner Bros. is actively going out of its way to market this movie as pedophilic animal porn for kids. In 3D. Yeesh.

If you wish to further subject yourself to the sick and twisted horrors of Jellystone, visit the movie’s official site.
