I know I’m a grown adult now, but I really don’t know why this trailer seriously gets to me. I think it’s the Keane background music, combined with familiar, huggable characters. And Christopher Robin is properly English! Even though my friend Amber thinks Pooh is dumb (which I suppose he is), I think at any given time I can identify with at least one of the characters from Winnie the Pooh, which is kind of amazing. When I’m feeling especially bossy at work, I’ll be like Rabbit. If I’m down in the dumps (like I have been lately about how difficult it is to find a roommate — but never fear, Craigslist just might save the day) I feel like Eeyore’s soul sister. And when giant bugs (plural!) enter my room through the window, like they did last night, I am definitely a Piglet. Though I think, when left to our vices, Amber and I are usually a lot like Tigger while at work, which is probably the best way to be.
Extra super wonderful thing about this trailer is that Craig Ferguson is the voice of Owl :). Was so excited by the trailer that when I went to Duane Reade to buy bandaids, I had to get this:
Aaaaand gerbera daisies, take two — trying to pretty up the place for potential roommates.
